I loved making the strip-pieced, applique candy corn this summer and wanted to try something like it again. When I came across an awesome doll quilt by Amber from One Shabby Chick , I knew it would be perfect for the honey bun strips I have.
Her straight line quilting really made the design! I hardly ever do lines, so this was a great chance to practice that skill as well.
I used the same light weight, fusible interfacing as before. Once the circles were turned, I just ironed them in place and top stitched right inside the edge.
For the circles that are not whole, I just made them whole - quilted as they hung off the edge - then chopped off the extra after adding the binding.
I couldn't resist adding a gnome to this one as well. Thank you Amber for the awesome inspiration - this was a blast to make and will look wonderful at our advent tea!
