Are you on Santa’s nice list? If so, we hope he leaves a Shark Applicutter under your tree this year! That pint-sized rotary cutter navigates curves and tight corners with ease. This week Rob used it to fussy cut dozens of little fish for his freestyle applique Coral Reef quilt. This tropical quilt pattern leaves lots of room for creativity, and it’s a blast to put together!

You might cry over spilt milk, but spilt paint? Never! Even accidental plops of rainbow-hued pigment can turn out awesome – especially on quilts! Inspired by his own painting projects, Rob started this quilt with a patchwork of newsprint fabric to create the illusion of a newspaper “drop cloth.” Then he layered on big ‘ole drips of applique “paint” in nice, bold colors.
