ScanNCut Specialist Julie Fei Fan Balzer recalls a visit to her local quilt guild where swaps of fat quarter pieces of fabric were traded, bartered, and exchanged! What did she make with her new assortment of colors? Read on to find out!

I am a member of a local quilt guild. At our most recent meeting, we were each instructed to bring a fat quarter of red, orange, yellow, blue, green, and purple fabric.  We created piles of each of the colors of fabric…

…and then through a complicated series of swaps, we each ended up with a pile of 6 fabrics — but not all of the colors.  This was mine:

I used my ScanNCut DX to help me cut out a bunch of shapes for raw edge appliqué and put this little baby quilt together from start-to-finish (including quilting and binding) in less than a day!

If I had it to do over, I probably would have taken a little more time to fiddle with the design, but you know what they say: done is better than perfect!
