Stephanie's Cut and Shuffle Plus Quilt

My friend Stephanie Palmer of Late Night Quilter and The Quilter's Planner fame has made a quilt using the block construction method in my book Cut and Shuffle Quilts.

Stephanie kindly agreed to make blocks and post a book review of Cut and Shuffle Quilts. She went way above and beyond! She made several of my Plus blocks using the Block Mama method of making a parent block, cutting it up, and shuffling the parts. Her quilt is awesome! She totally made it her own using a modern layout with lots of negative space. And her quilting is spectacular.

Stephanie used her Cut and Shuffle Plus quilt as a teaching sample at a retreat in Fredericksburg, Texas. Check out her post here for more about her classes and the retreat center. It looks so inviting!

Stephanie's layout and quilting really enhance the Plus block in the quilt above. Below is my original version as featured in Cut and Shuffle Quilts.

  1. Very effective use of color and pattern. Stephanie's version turned out beautifully.

  2. I am fascinated with the geometry that happens when a simple block is cut into sections and re-arranged.
