NEW! Snack Sets & variety pack February 09 2017, 0 Comments

I am in LOVE with these small blocks: 

Fast to piece, great for scrap busting and 15 minutes of PLAY!

Click here.

 

 Here are little quilts we made using the templates. Each quilt has 9 blocks of each template set. 

This orange quilt is Snack set #1

The templates are great for machine piecing or hand piecing! (American patchwork)

 

Snack set #2

 

 

 Snack Set #3

 

Snack Set #4

 

Snack Set #5

 

 Snack set #6

Snack set #6 is quite clever as it can make both blocks shown in this purple quilt. The churn dash, and the cross block.  SWEET!

 

 Snack Set #7

 

Each set is sold individually, or

 

 as a VARIETY PACK! Get all seven in one pack!

 

So you can use all the blocks to make this cute sampler!

 

All our new products are listed here.


 

I have already been playing in my solids scrap bins, and am working on a tonal quilt using 

Snack set #1.  I'm using two colors close in value, to make 9 patch blocks...in every color combo I can find in my scrap bin. That has not stopped me from making more little blocks of the other sets though! Extra Set #6 and #3 keep popping up on my wall as well!

 

 

 

SNOW DAY!!!  6" already, and to think yesterday was 65. sigh.

Today I will finish my binding on the individual coasters/mug rugs I made as well!

 I hope you will love playing with these Snack Sets!!

I bet you can't just make one!  ( less calories than potato chips!)
