Eye Candy Quilts

Melody’s Eye Candy quilts are stunning mini-quilts that are so fun to make and can be finished in practically no time. Embellishing with beads, buttons, ribbons, paint, feathers and a myriad of other commonly available materials is so easy that any quilter will be dazzled. You’ll make a 2.5" by 3.5" mini-quilt in class.
