Candy buttons

I have a new project on Moda Bakeshop...



Candy Buttons Quilt....


When I started to make this quilt I kept thinking about those sheets of sweet candy buttons I ate as a child. Sweet candies...I ♥ this quilt. Although there seems to be an abundance of giveaways in blogland I am going to giveaway 1 set of Moda Sweet pre-cut circles for a lucky quilter that would like to make their own candy buttons quilt. Leave a comment here to enter PLUS....Leave a comment on my post at Moda Bakeshop for a second entry!!!


I'll pick a winner on July 10th! Good luck....


******UPDATE*****

As suggested by BumbleBeans....I am going to giveaway a Clover yo-yo maker with the circles!

Vickie I love this quilt and congrats on having another project on the Moda Bake Shop site..

I didn't realise Moda had precut circles (sheesh how many precut doodads do they do now???) I've not seen them here in Australia, you are lucky to find charm squares and jelly rolls!
