In honor of Traer’s 2008 Winding Stairs Festival (Fiesta on 2nd Street), I designed a fun, simple quilt using some really cute Candy print fabric (plus a stack of great bright fat eighths).
You might have noticed this one hanging in the front window in the shop tour I posted below — along with a Pinata! I figured this is the sort of “booty” that quilters would like to see tumble out of their Pinata!
The quilt is available as a kit, which includes the pattern and the fabric needed to make the quilt top (plus binding!). The backing is not included, but we have a bunch of the candy fabric (the tossed candy, plus the candy stripes in white or purple) in stock (and at a great price!). You would need 3.5 yards (or a quantity of 7 half-yards in the shopping cart) in order to piece a back for this lap-sized quilt.

I’ve also made the pattern available as a FREE download! You do have to add the pattern to your shopping cart, and go through the checkout process to get it, but it’s pretty easy to do (plus it is free!).
Pinata Booty Free Pattern (via the shopping cart)
The pattern is available directly from here, so you don’t have to go through the Knots & Bolts shopping cart:

The quilt is a very easy log cabin variation, and the pattern would work with Jelly Rolls, too! Fun for kids — of all ages! The finished quilt measures 55 by 65, making it a great candidate for a Quilt of Valor, as well.
