Pattern Description:

You Can Do This!
Jump in! Be creative, there is something crazy relaxing about shredding a quilt! Maybe it's your first quilt, or the 100th, you'll get hooked! Use up your stash or start one, my customers and friends just have to hug and "pat" this cozy quilt!
If you don't have a stash of flannel fabric or find picking 14 different fabrics intimidating, check out my 2 print "Sweethearts and Peonies" quilt pattern here on Craftsy!

This innovated new PATTERN challenge is a major "Quilting Rule" Breaker. Stash Buster, and Stress reliever!
This quilt is pieced, quilted and backed in only a few steps!
You will find this 12 page PDF pattern full of useful information, hints, and tips to help the beginner and guide the expert, along with 12 close-up photos, diagrams, and 2 full size applique templates included.
No batting or backing to buy or add!
No Constant ironing! (You could make this quilt if you didn't own an iron)!
No fussy cutting!
No paper piecing!
No critical "points" to match!
No fussy seam allowances, 1/2 inch throughout! (Leave that "scant" 1/4" behind for this quilt)!
No critical alignment or stitching of the appliques! Close is ok, you're going to clip and shred them!
No fussy applique edge stitching!
Adding a row or 2 is no problem using simple math!
This quilt allows you be creative!!
You can follow my pattern or try new shapes or use "scrappy" colors from your stash!
Shredding is a huge stress buster!
A little "wonky" might even help this "shabby chic'ish" quilt, it was created to have a soft and relaxed finished look.
