And that’s how the Scrappy Quilt Kit came to life.....

Every quilt has a story and our scrappy quilt kit is no exception.

We both really liked the Apple Core design and felt it could really come to life in a scrappy quilt.   With precision die cutting, the Apple Core Pieces have notches on all 4 sides of every piece, giving extra guidance so the sewing results are easier and piecing consistent.   We had a lot of material to choose from and knew we would have a great selection of light, medium and dark pink, yellow and green pastel fabrics that were adorable and would work well in a scappy quilt.   This picture 

shows you the fabrics and the precision cutting including the notches that you get with this quilt kit.

Our Mom, who’s in her early 80’s, was equally interested in trying her hand at curved piecing.  She was hesitant at first, however,  she found the notches ideal to ensure the piecing matched every time.  She also found that by keeping her sewing speed slow and steady, she could control her seam allowances around the curves. It turns out she loved curved piecing so much, she has made several scrappy quilts of her own.   Mom has also started sewing another curved pieced quilt -- a Double Wedding Ring quilt kit which we have been preparing for release and adding to our store in the near future!

We backed one of our samples in flannel and a second in Minky (yes the dreaded slippery material) which made it extra cuddly.   The circle quilting Judy did on her longarm machine was another way to bring the apple core design to life.  

Intermediate and experienced sewers and quilters will find this a simple and fun quilt top to create for that special child.    The kits sells for $65.00  plus taxes.  For more information, check out the details on Heather’s Etsy page:
