Scrap-Apple Quilt

Scrap-Apple Quilt

This quilt is available for sale in my shop!

I'm going to let you in a little secret: I am super disorganized. And generally I am disorganized to the point where a planner is really no help because I can't find the planner underneath the heap of papers on my desk, but I have found a planner I think I will actually use.

The Scrappy Project Planner is wonderful.  Will I use it diligently, every single day?  Probably not, I  am hopeless, but it has so many useful tools that make it worth digging through the papers to find it.  Let me start with the patterns.  The book has 6 quilt patterns, all of which I am interested in making for scrappy and non-scrappy projects alike. Over the next few weeks you will be able to see these quilts as part of the sew along.  I decided to make the Scrap-Apple quilt.

This uses a Pineapple block, which I had never made before.  It used up scraps like crazy and was a fun (but time consuming!) project.  One of my favorite things about the way that the patterns are written is that each one gives directions for making the full quilt and directions for making a single block.  I wanted to make a smaller quilt so this made sizing the quilt down nice and easy.

The best thing about the planner is the section with size charts.  There are tables for making flying geese, HSTs, corner triangles, hourglass blocks, etc.  I normally use Google to find this info but it is nice to have them in one place and I have already put them to good use.

The FQS has put together a wonderful video showing all of the tools that the planner offers.
