Decided it was needed at my house. I copied the pattern and what directions I could find without having to buy the magazine or wherever all the info was. Some thoughts if I made this again are: carefully cut out the white part that everything will be fused to (imagine how I know this!!??); cut pieces that meet where candies meet longer than called for, then cut off as needed--makes it a lot easier than trying to cover gaps (again, how do I know this??!!); make sure you know which side of the paper covering your fusible is the correct side!!; pre-wash all fabrics and use a color catcher sheet when doing that and when washing finished project; you can make this one candy or a lot more if want, but if trying it again, I'd consider making each candy separately and use bias around the edges, then tack together; if wanting to do different reds as shown, think that through when cutting out--originally it was going to be all the more solid red but I wanted variety and didn't think it through, so it's a bit interesting; read the directions thoroughly!! I put the batting under the white background and added other material to quilt it as you're zigzagging each piece--the look is ok for me, but it does do that bunching up that is fun in quilts when you take the finished quilt out of the dryer; found it worked best to quilt the whole center candy first, then outer ones and liked the look best when I started at one outer edge of a swirl, sewed through center and onto the opposite swirl of the same color, then turned it around and sewed through on the other side of both swirls. Sorry there are no in progress pictures and that this all makes sense. Think it would be nice without batting, too.
Looked online for candles that might go with it--wow, some peppermint looking/smelling candles can be super expensive! Found some nice things at Pier One--peppermint cream I think is the line and I got votives and some tealights that will be cute sitting in centers of each candy. Not hard to do if you pay attention--not my strong suit, obviously! And they weren't hard, really and went pretty fast. Now, to just get my coffee table cleared off!
