This is a Snippet Stews variation quilt. Snippet Stews are quick cut scrappy quilts made with snippets (10" Squares). You can also use these patterns with Moda's Layer Cakes. The patterns are specifically written to utilize the amazing June Tailor Shape Cut Plus Ruler. If you don't have one of these, you will want one. It will shave hours off of your fabric cutting time. Be sure to get the Shape Cut Plus, it is a bit more expensive, but worth it!
