Rock Candy

 


I finally found the time to make a Rock Candy Table Topper by Jaybird Quilts. I've had the pattern for quite a while. It was always one of the projects I wanted to get to "next". I also had the Sidekick Ruler which makes this pattern so much easier! (There is a template included in case you don't have the Sidekick Ruler.) The topper finished at 20 1/2" X 23". You also need 1 Charm Pack or 18 - 5 inch squares. I have a few charm packs but I thought the bright batiks would work out the best.


You make 6 sections that are made up of 6 diamonds and 4 triangles.


I sewed them into pairs.


Then I added another section to make one half of the topper.


I put 2 halves together.


All I had left to add were the borders.


It's done! It reminds me of my paper pieced hexagons for Arcadia Avenue. But no paper piecing! I have to machine quilt it. It will be nice to display during the summer. Hope you enjoyed seeing me make my Rock Candy Table Topper, It's a nice quick project that comes out great!

  2. That is gorgeous!!! The jewel-toned batiks with the black are so rich looking and the piecing is ideal to complete the "feel". Can't wait to see it quilted!!!!!
