I have been making all kinds of blocks using some batik fabrics and the new die available from AccuQuilt. The die I have been having a lot of fun with is the 6" Finished Spool die.
New!! Fast and Easy AccuQuilt GO! Spool Die
I have used some of the fabrics for plain blocks.....I might used these for a border.This die contains all of the cuts on die and they are closer together than I would like but no worries.....I'll create other blocks with the leftovers.
I just pulled out my scraps of colorful batiks for the thread on the spools. I decided to cut 2 of each fabric for my thread instead of 4 as shown on the die cover.
As you can see, I couldn't stop making them! I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet. Right now I am just enjoying working with the die and my favorite fabrics.
In case you are wondering, the neutral fabric isn't a batik. Many times I mix batiks with regular quilt fabric and never have a problem with my quilting.
Putting block pieces on your design wall can help create something new. I'm trying to decide on a border and I kind of like the look I came up with. It isn't a spool but I have an idea for a fun border! More on that soon.
