Simple Strip Scramble By Rob Appell
 
This is Rob’s first ever pattern for a quick and easy quilt, and is still one of his most popular patterns today. Originally known as “The Dolphin Dance,“ this Simple Strip Pieced Scramble lends itself to a huge variety of theme fabrics for the adults or kids at heart. The quilt top is easily constructed in an afternoon and makes for a wonderful base for appliqué and or simple machine quilting.
Rob is known for his high energy level and ability to work with a complex variety of learning styles. He offers more than just quilt education with his wild sense of humor and manly approach to quilt making.
