New: Candyweb Quilt Block Pattern

Wednesday, April 20, 2022

Happy Wednesday! Today I want to officially introduce you to my newest pattern, the Candyweb Quilt Block Pattern. It's only $5!

This pattern is a bit different for me! Rather than publishing a full blown quilt pattern for this design, I've instead decided to release it as a block pattern. What you'll find in this pattern is detailed instructions for my favorite method of paper piecing (with step by step photos!), block layout ideas, some blank blocks for planning your project as well as the printable block templates. The blocks finish at 14" square, and the paper piecing templates are designed to be printed on regular 8.5"x11" copy paper.

I spent a good chuck of January organzing and processing my scraps as well as designing this quilt block. One of my goals for 2022 is to make an entire quilt from scraps and this is the project I'm dedicating to that goal. I pressed and organized my scraps by size and into warm and cool color groups. I knew pretty early in the process that I wanted to make a quilt from strips, and I played around with a bunch of ideas. I landed on this twist on the traditional spiderweb quilt block!

There are so many different projects you could make with this quilt block pattern. I am planning to make a throw size quilt, but you could also turn a single block into a pillow, sew a few in a long strip to make a table runner, put a block on the side of a tote bag, or make a quilt too!

One of the fun things about the Candyweb Quilt Block is that there are tons of possibilities in terms of block layout. Your choices can give you many different looking quilts. Here are a few of the ways you can make this design your own:
- Changing up where you place color.
- Using a single background fabric vs. multiple.
- Using scraps in all colors or a more strict color palette.
- Turning the block quarters differently. (see photos above!)

If you'd like to make blocks that look similar to mine, here is what you need to know! I am making two different blocks. For half the blocks I'm using warm colors (pinks, reds, oranges, yellows) for the strip sections and cool colors (greens, blues, purples) for the background sections. For the other half of the blocks I'm doing the oposite, so cool colors for the background sections and warm colors for the strip sections.

I hope this pattern might tempt you into tackling your scrap bin this year! I know mine desperately needs using!

  1. Love this! Can't wait to try it out!

  2. As soon as I saw your block pattern was available, I grabbed it. I have a lot of scraps and, even though I love regular string quilts, I wanted to do something a little different, This is perfect. Thanks, Jeni!
