Candygram Mini Quilt Pattern {free mini quilt pattern}!

Eek! Don’t you just love everything that Heidi over at Fabric Mutt sews? I have been a fan of hers for so, so long! So I was super happy when she agreed to design a mini quilt for us and our SewCanShe Monthly Mini Quilts series. I gave her free rein to design anything she wanted because I didn’t want to get in the way of her creativity… and look at the adorable Candygram quilt she designed!
