SWEETHEARTS & PEONIES RAG  QUILT 43x49 Sweethearts and Peonies 43x49

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Ideally you should have some experience using a sewing machine, (preferably with a walking foot) a rotary cutter, scissors, and stitch ripper safely.

Pattern Description:

A new and exciting design for the experienced quilter as well as the beginner!
This innovated new challenge is a major "Quilting Rule" breaker!

You will find this 11 page PDF pattern full of useful information, hints, and tips to help the beginner and guide the expert, along with 18 close-up photos, diagrams, and 2 full size applique templates included.

This quilt is pieced, quilted and backed in only a few steps!
No Constant ironing! (You could make this quilt if you didn't own an iron)!
Only 2 fabrics to select!
No batting or backing to buy or add!
No fussy cutting!
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!
No border or mitered corners to add!
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.
