I bought a bunch of Candy precuts , the 2 1/2 inch squares, and now I do not have a clue what to do with them. I also have the template for the 2.5 in tumbler. I was thinking about doing flying geese with them and then assembling into potholders. If my squares for FG were 2 1/2 inches - what size base square would that require....feeling pretty dense tonight...or I am open to any other ideas for patterns....I did see the tutorial on this site but wanted to do something other than a simple square of tumblers.

I bought a BUNCH of them while I was at the M* retreat center. They are just too cute not to pass them up.

I'm going to use them to make a periwinkle quilt. I also bought the template and the papers for this size. I know it will take a LOT of candy packs to make a quilt of any size, but I'm gonna do it.

I made a table topper from Jenny's magazine with the squares. They're also perfect size for mimi tumbler template; made some bags and pouches. I'm going to piece some together for a fabric box and haven't decided what to do with the rest that I have here. Sometimes, I think they're just too cute to cut, so I hoard them for awhile. LOL

My granddaughter just made two zigzag table runners. I told her I would cut the left over charms to 2 1/2 so she can make a small tumbler pot holder to match the table runners.

I've purchased several of these cute little buggers! I bought them specifically for my scrappy Hexie quilt that will not have any repeats of the same fabric.

I love to use them to make mini zig zag table runners. They are perfect for small narrow tables.

My DD and DSs bought me two packs for my birthday. They are too cute to use. I thought I'd make a Cathedral Window. Does anyone know what size square the plain bit should be (ie the backing-foldy bit)? And does anyone have a piccie they can post?

I'm going to use my minis to make tiny tumblers to alternate in rows with 5" tumblers. I love the pattern for the Summer Bazaar quilt I made last year and want to make a smaller version for a table topper or runner.

Some time ago I ran an online search for candy bar quilt patterns and found a cute wall hanging on the Moda site. I'm sorry, but I can't find it now though. It called for cutting all the candy bars in half before starting and isn't that what the candy is anyway? Essentially you end up making some flying geese and pinwheels when you put the blocks together.Very cute. I wish I had the link but I ended up saving the pattern on my Ipad. I am working on the pattern now.

They are so precious that it was hard to open the packs and use them, but I'm glad I did.

I found the name...it is Candy Bar Pinwheels by Doug Leko.

I don' remember where I saw it but it was a great idea using them for a little Christmas quilt or table topper. The Moda candies were sewn together in rows, and randomly through out the rows One had a strip of fabric on it vertically and a little bow on top, that looked like a gift box.

I saw that somewhere too Cathy. They were adorable! Individual ones would also be cute on a Christmas tree wall hanging.

How about trying English Paper piecing? I use the mini charms to make the 1 1/2 in diamonds in the 6 point stars.

Where did you buy them? For some reason I can't find them in the M* Quilt Shop! I'm pretty sure they sell them, but I can't find them! (Don't laugh!) :(

I watch a tutorial on Missouri Star quilt this am 5 and Dime tutorial with moda fabrics. It came right after the four seasons quilt that was on NBC news. Its a cute quilt using charms and candies. Certainly looks easy.

You could include them in a Jelly Roll Race style quilt.
