Halloween Is Almost Here. Therefore, A Fun Candy Corn Quilt Block Tutorial That Uses Scraps For National Candy Corn Day!

Hi there quilty friends! It's been a bit since I posted the next quilt block tutorial for my National Days scrap quilt project. Did you know Candy Corn had a day? Me, neither. :) Do you like Candy Corn? This is probably a controversial opinion, but I'm not a fan, really. (*ducks behind laptop screen, please don't throw things*) I mean, I've heard it's good with peanuts, but I dunno. I can't get past the waxy feeling of it. Ew. haha! I DO, however, LOVE fabric Candy Corn! :) Especially scrappy fabric Candy Corn quilt blocks!

Here's how to stitch up some of this fabric eye candy. Get out all the orange, yellow, and white scraps!

Fabric A (background):
(6) 1" sq. (~)
(2) 1 1/2" sq. (*)
(1) 1 1/2 x 2 1/2" (**)
(2) 1 1/2 x 3"
(1) 1 1/2 x 8 1/2"
(4) 2 x 2 1/2"
(2) 3 x 3 1/2"

Fabric B (yellow scraps):
(2) 1 1/2 x 5 1/2"

Fabric C (orange scraps):
(1) 1 x 4 1/2"
(1) 1 1/2 x 3 1/2" (***)
(1) 1 1/2 x 4 1/2"

Fabric D (white scraps):
(1) 2 x 2 1/2"

--Match the symbols (~,* etc.) in the cutting instructions with the symbols in the assembly diagram.

Using the simple corner flip method illustrated in the video above, and fabrics and sizes indicated on the unit, make the following corner flip units. 

Once those units are done, assemble your Candy Corn quilt block as shown below, using SCANT quarter inch seams.

You will have an 8 1/2" sq. Candy Corn/Halloween themed quilt block (8" finished in quilt). And you will have used up a few scraps along the way. :) Stay tuned for the next block. I think there are five blocks left maybe? And then the 144 blocks that I drew for this project and their tutorials will be all documented here!

Happy Wednesday and Happy Stitching! I'll be back soon!


P.S. I love to see blocks and quilts that are made with any of my patterns. If you make any and post on social media, please come find me in any of the places listed below, and tag me so I can see! :) If you're on YouTube, check out the short musical video tutorials of some of these blocks. I'm hoping they might inspire kids, or anyone really, to learn to sew. :) Plus, they're just fun to do.


I'm keeping all of these blocks organized on the National Days quilt blocks page *HERE*if you're looking for any of the other 100+ blocks I've posted so far. Getting closer to my goal of 144 blocks! If you know someone who loves MinecraftPokemon, and or Harry Potter, check out these free sew alongs, too! :) And if you're looking for any of my print patterns, or other fun quilty gifts, check out my Etsy shop here. Be back soon!
