Quick Quilts from Pre-cuts (and some pre-cuts to share!)

Amy Smart Craftsy Class Quilts

I’m finally getting around to sharing a few of the new quilts I created this spring for my Pre-cuts Short-cuts: Quilt Tops in Less Time online Craftsy class. I loved making them and the fabric is now in shops so I thought it would be fun to give them their own feature. Plus a chance to give away some fabric. 😉

Amy Smart Crosshatch quilt

The first is this Crosshatch quilt made from Lella Boutique’s latest collection, Little Miss Sunshine. It’s such a fun, summer-y, cheerful collection of colors and prints. I love how the navy blue in there provides some contrast and helps the other colors pop.

Pre-Cut Short-Cuts Craftsy Class by Amy Smart

This quilt is totally pre-cuts friendly. I made this quilt for my Craftsy class using a Layer Cake – or set of 10″ x 10″ squares. But it can also be made with Charm squares (5″ x 5″) and a Jelly Roll (2 1/2″ strips). The pattern is really versatile and great for showing off a variety of fabrics.

S

Little Miss Sunshine is available from Lou Lou’s Fabric ShopBloomerie FabricsWestwood Acres, Southern Fabrics, and the Fat Quarter Shop.
Bonnie and Camille Little Ruby Basketweave Quilt

The second quilt is a brand new design for me called Basket Weave and it’s exclusive to this class.  This quilt is also pre-cuts friendly. With the exception of the borders/binding, the entire quilt top is made from 2 sets of 10″ x 10″ squares (aka Layer Cakes). It also involves strip-piecing (with squares! I know!) to save time and make it a deceptively quick project!

Basketweave Quilt by Amy Smart

The fabric for this quilt is Bonnie and Camille’s latest collection for Moda, Little Ruby in some of their signature colors. There are a lot of great small-scale prints – many that make great blenders in this collection. Little Ruby is available from Fort Worth Fabric StudioPink Castle FabricsLady Belle Fabrics, and the Fat Quarter Shop.

Quilting Amy Smart Basket Weave quilt

The quilting on both quilts was done by Sew Shabby Quilting. I especially love the Nifty Feather pattern she used on this one to give it a soft, vintage look that works so well with the vintage feel of the fabric and colors.

Amy Smart Basketweave quilt pattern

I think this picture is my favorite. Monday night my husband and I dragged our kids up the nearby canyon for a hike in the mountains. It was SO wonderful. (I love escaping the heat to the mountains this time of year.) Once again I just happened to bring a quilt with me for a quick picture. My family is no longer surprised when I do this. 😉

You can see the rest of the quilts from my Craftsy class here.

Moda Little Miss Sunshine giveawayIn honor of my class release a few weeks ago and all of the kind support I’ve received from so many of you, I’ve got 2 sets of fabric to give away so that one of you out there can make your own! (Or do with whatever your heart desires!)

Thanks to the generosity of Moda Fabrics I’m giving away a Jelly Roll and Charm pack of Little Miss Sunshine…

Bonnie and Camille Little Ruby Giveaway

… and I’ve also got two 10″ x 10″ Layer Cakes to make the Basket Weave quilt top: One Layer Cake of Little Ruby and one set of Kona Snow 10″ x 10″ squares. Good stuff!

I love your new ideas for layer cakes. They are harder for me to come up with new ideas for. Especially ideas that don’t involve a really big block. Your Basket Weave quilt it perfect.

What great quilts! I love them (and that they use precuts). Both fabric choices are so lovely as well! I love learning new things and I think my next challenge will be to get better at curves (I keep attempting and then giving up after 1 square, lol).

Amy Smart Pre-cuts ShortCuts Craftsy

As I mentioned, both quilts are 2 of the 7 patterns taught in my class. In addition to the instructions for the quilts themselves, the class also has lots of tips for working with pre-cuts in general as well as choosing fabric and color placement in your quilts. And because I love you all, you can click here to get this class for 50% off!

(This post contains an affiliate link to my class -which means, I get paid if you buy this class. 😉 )

    Amy,
    The one thing above all you have taught me is perseverance! You make quilting look effortless. Being a novice quilter your teachings have shown me that it not always the end result, but the process of learning. I now have more confidence to do what I thought before, was a daunting task. Your quilting is beautiful and done so well. I hope I can someday reach a point where I can call myself a quiltist!
    Thank you for all that you do.

    When using precuts, I always struggle with the pinked edges and the seam allowance. How do you make sure the seam is secure? Which part of the pinked edge is really the edge? I have had a completed quilt pop a seam with precuts. I’m not sure how to repair it, short of unpicking the quilting. Thanks!

    What I need to learn. How to start USING my precuts. Some of them are like that precious fabric you just don’t want to use. Maybe taking your class will give me the incentivel I have been stashbusting since I retired a couple of years ago, but I seem to pick my least favorites and saving the ones I really like for ???

    Hi, Amy! I need help! I just discovered the incredible world of quilting and have been obsessively pinning some of the most beautiful creations I’ve seen (including the three posted here!). I have not, however, been brave enough to begin the process of actually creating — fear of picking fabric, knowing how much to get … I would like to learn how to begin! S.O.S! 😊

I have been quilting about two and half years. I got a late start in life, but love it in spite of health issues. Pre cuts help me in so many ways. Thanks for a chance to win.

    I’ve just startesd looking into an ancient quilting technique called Kantha. It uses old worn out saris sewn together in stacks instead of a batting. It uses a running stitch in several patterns, but it proves our ancestors were frugal and made blankets for their loved ones even long ago. Other than that, I am hoping to wedge some quilting time in during the summer school break!

    I can’t wait to watch this class! I purchased it last week, and as soon as I finish up the Jacquie Gering class I’m taking, I’ll be diving right in. I’ve been trying to focus on using my scraps lately, and now I have a lot of pre-cuts that have been ignored. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I am interested in hand binding and the best tools for quilting at home (specifically how to mark quilts). I have tried different products and find that I am not really sure what I am doing. I used one of those blue marking pencils and it never would wash out. I have tried painting tape as well, but it doesn’t stay stuck to the quilt.

Walking into my local quilt shop, it is so intimidating to me to pick out colors and patterns that both work well together and work with the pattern I’m using. They are also such time savers which comes in handy with my active household.
