Summer Dreams is the first Hoopsisters design set to include digital cutting files for use with the Brother ScanNCut to accurately cut out your applique pieces.
If you don't own a digital cutter just yet, don't worry as you can use the usual HoopSisters piecing method until you get one.
Summer Dreams is a compilation of some of the QuiltSister favourite blocks that have been totally redone and modernized and the pack includes five quilts. You may recognise Amish Flower Power – the basic block is the same, however the quilting has been updated with amazing echo quilting and rows of circle quilting. QuiltSisters have also added digital cutting files for the applique on this block. Use the Artistic Edge Digital Cutter, the Silhouette Cameo, or the Brother ScanNCut to accurately cut out your applique pieces.
You also might recognize the Beauty Found block. This block has been updated with bubble quilting fill, and new quilting in the pieced arch to give it a more modern look. The applique in the corner can also be cut with a digital cutter, as well as the quilting pieces in the arch. Several of these blocks appear in the quilt so imagine how much faster you can sew them if your pieces are all precut!
The very centre is an updated Starburst block, the String Block is the frame for the centre medallion, with the floral appliques and several new border blocks to complete this quilt – all with beautiful modern circle quilting.
The digital cutting files are provided for 2 of the blocks in this quilt: "Amish Flower Power" and "Beauty Found". The largest block takes less than 30 minutes to stitch so this is a quick quilt to make up!
