Scrap-Apple Quilt - Scrappy Project Planner Sew Along

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.

I thoroughly enjoyed making my quilt and I am going to be donating it to the local school district which collects comfort items for homeless students.

  7. I cut out your pattern "At Dusk" and am putting together the quilt. After cutting all the fabric for the 10 7/8" and 3 7/8" square that form triangles (Z, AA, BB, CC, DD, EE) and now putting it together, the directions have me piecing the blue triangles to fabric EE then go to the purple blocks using CC skipping what was cut for DD. Now this fabric has been wasted. Please correct your pattern.

    1. So sorry! I made the quilt and gave rough directions, but the fabric manufacturer made the pattern. I will let them know.
