Kwik Krazy Quilters.....Kwik Scrappy Quilters
People call us all kinds of different things and spell our name a lot of different
ways... Kwick, Quick, etc...it doesn't really matter except when you are trying to find the website! Please
excuse the referral of "we, our" vs. "I, my".....there were two of us until 2005....I am Karie
The pattern company was
started in Aug of 2001, with 3 patterns. There are now over 50 different patterns. Many of the patterns use a "stack
and slash" technique that wasour first claim to fame. I love Purses and Bags so we have a whole seclection of them. Check
out the Mystery Quilts too....they are great fun for a guild or retreat.
Our "stack and slash"
technique was designed for two groups of Quilters....."The Busy Quilter"and the "Wanna B Quilter". The
"Busy Quilter" is one who knows how to quilt, and because she (or he) knows how...everyone wants them to make a
quilt for them, quick....usually a king size! The "Wanna B Quilter" is the beginner. She (or he) wants to learn,
but sticking to a 1/4 seam allowance it something they have not yet mastered. Quick is not the issue... experience is.
The pattern for the block is traced onto freezer paper. Freezer paper is then ironed to top of 12 different
fabrics that you are using (the stack). The freezer paper will stay in place while you rotary cut (slash) on all the lines....Thus
the term "Stack and Slash". The instructions then tell you how to shuffle the fabrics so that each block has
a different combination of fabrics.This technique is so easy that even a beginner quilter can have perfect results the first
time. You get the look of a traditional, scrap, crazy quilt with the easy of contemporary methods.The instructions are
written very clearly, and there is a visual guide as well, that shows you what everything looks like as you
feed it into the sewing machine. All of the blocks are trimmed to size after sewing; therefore a perfect 1/4 inch seam allowance
is not required.
I have provided a link where you can order retail, however I only sell wholesale. The
patterns are carried by Checkers Distributors, Brewer, Starwood Pattern Company, Pattern Peddlers, New Leaf Pattern Distributors,and
ThimbleFaire. You can also buy wholesale directly from me, and I do Trunk Shows and Lectures.
