Pieces of 8 Quilts

Over twenty years ago we started putting together our Pieces of 8 Quilt kits. We thought they would make wonderful quilts for beginners. The instructions are clear and there are even a few left over squares in case something is cut incorrectly.

To our amazement, experienced quilters started buying the kits because of the fabrics. We all need a no-brainer once in a while. It’s fun to work with beautiful fabrics and have a project completed quickly. We have made flannel ones in the Fall, pastel ones in the Spring and bright colored ones in the Summer.

There are many times we make quilts for those who don’t understand the amount of labor and time that goes into most quilts. Instead of fretting about how they might care for your masterpiece, just make them a Pieces of 8 and don’t worry.

Even though it’s a quick quilt, we can’t make samples for every Pieces of 8 quilt kit we make. These two show the fabrics that are in the kit. Both look fun to make.
