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!

Cue up a rad movie marathon and grab your sharpest snips; we’ve got some serious cutting to do! The Applique Bouquet quilt is made with broderie perse applique. That means fussy cutting a boatload of little flowers in preparation for total applique domination! This project is super creative and relaxing, and I know you’re gonna love it.

When you’re spread out on your favorite quilt to enjoy a firework show, the last thing on your mind is science. But the truth is, every flash, boom, and burst of color is 100% dependent on chemistry. Lithium creates bright red sparks, chlorine mixed with copper makes turquoise, and Titanium powder produces that deafening blast we love so much. This week I’m mixing up my own recipe for fireworks using a few “In the Navy” charm packs. Click HERE to learn how to make this fun, patriotic quilt!
