Hello Bloggers!!!! I'm back!  I know its been several months since my last blog post and for 2015 I promise to be more consistent.  I will let you know that I post daily on my Facebook Page  I am also still running my Facebook Monthly Quilt along projects.  If you are interested in joining here is the link:  It's a lot of fun and the best part is you have a finished project every month!  I had a great time seeing all my finished 2014 projects hanging proudly aound my home!  If you want to join and just follow along that's completely fine as well.  No one is obligated to do the monthly projects.  Sometimes it's just fun to see what the project is and then see pictures of those who have completed them as well.  2014 was a great year!  I have some of my merchandise at a wonderful little boutique in Wappinger Falls, NY called Created With Love Boutique and I did a couple of craft shows at the end of the year!  I will be coming out with a NYC themed line of merchandise which I will also be selling on my website.  This year I am excited to announce that I will finally be teaching quilting to small groups!  I am super excited and look forward to coming up with new items and hosting my monthly quilt along. So there is a lot in the works!  I am also determined to complete some UFO's I have stored in bins.  I have about 6 quilt tops that are complete and need to be sandwiched and quilted!  I have completed four so far this month so I am on a roll!
Here are the four quilts I completed.

This is going to be an awesome event and Quilter's Candy Shop will be there along with my husbands business, Enchanted Parties!  Quilter's Candy Shop is also launching my daughters own business
Luv -N- Paws!  Samantha will be making no sew fleece pet blankets and small pet quilts too, because your pets deserve to have a quilt made with love too!  We couldn't think of a better event to debut her merchandise so come out and say hi and enjoy a day for a great cause. 

Hello Bloggers!  It has been a long time since I have posted on my blog.  I have been extremely busy to say the least.  I do post to my FB just about every day so if you are interested in what I am working on and doing and you don't see a recent post here, check me out on my FB page at  I just finished my Book Shelf Quilt top which was my Sept-Oct Monthly quilt along project which I currently host on Face Book as well.  Now I am in search of the perfect backing fabric and this one will be all ready to be hung.  I am keeping this one!

Hope you all like it!

Hey everyone!  Happy Monday!  I had such a hectic weekend but I got a little bit of everything done including a little bit of sewing. I sewed 2 blocks for my monthly quilting class and have 2 more to go.  I have to be honest.  These were not my favorite to work with as they have 2.5 inch squares and I have come to the conclusion that I really don't like working with triangles or small pieces.  But I continue to challenge myself and tackle them so these were my final results.  This is the homework for month 3 so I have some catching up to do since I skipped month 2 in its entirety! Does anyone else feel like I do about working with small pieces.  I admire people who make postage stamp quilts. That would take a whole lot of patience from me. lol

Are you a quilter? I have created a quilt along group on Facebook under "Quilter's Candy Shop Monthly Quilt Along". Click the link below and Join the Group. Every month I will post a FREE pattern for a monthly project to be completed by the end of the month. Post pictures when your project is complete or even as you go along so everyone can enjoy some eye candy. We love to share pics of other projects as well. Remember quilter's eye candy is the the best because it has no calories, no sugar and you can have as much as you want! So come quilt along, meet new friends and have some fun! Monthly projects are small enough so that you can complete it in a month's time. Please feel free to share my Group Link, we look forward to seeing the Group grow with Inspiration! Happy Quilting!!!

I finished my June Monthly Project - "Dimensional Flowers".  These monthly projects have become so much fun!  I created a group on Facebook if anyone is interested in joining. It's called Quilter's Candy Shop Monthly Quilt Along.  Every month I will post a new project to be completed for that month.  I supply the pattern for free and once you are done just post your pictures because Show & Tell is the best part! 

The colors are much darker but I do liked the way it turned out.

I decided to embellish my wallhaning with buttons and of course my signature!

Hello bloggers - I can't believe its been almost a month since I last posted on my blog but I have been quite busy. So my latest accomplishment was my graduation from the WEDC Program (Women's Enterprise Development Center) where I earned a certificate of completion in their business and business plan course.  I have learned so much and even finished a business plan!  After 5 months of taking classes once a week from 6:30-9:30 I was happy to have completed the program successfully. So here is my certificate and hopefully this will open doors that will bring me closer to my dream which is opening the doors to QUILTER'S CANDY SHOP!


I made quilted gifts for my Instructor and 3 special ladies who all are a big part of WEDC!  I made a quilted basket for each of them and 3 candle mats for the ladies and a mug rug for my instructor.
