Last week I showed the quilt top that I made for my Island Batik Ambassador April Challenge using the AccuQuilt GO! 8 inch Qube set and today I get to show it to you all quilted.
I used the Island Batik Check It Out collection and a neutral batik for the sashing. The binding was done with the teal Check It Out batik.
Ready Set Go! Baby Quilt
approx 38″ x 50″
For the month of April, the Island Batik ambassadors were to create a baby quilt using the AccuQuilt GO! 8 inch Qube set and of course some of Island Batik’s beautiful batiks. All of the ambassadors received the AccuQuilt GO! cutter and Qube set from AccuQuilt for this challenge.
I have always enjoyed using my AccuQuilt cutter as it makes it so fast and easy to cut out fabric. You can cut all the pieces for a baby quilt in no time at all. You will find many AccuQuilt tutorials on my blog as I have been using the dies and cutter for a long time and have done many guest posts on AccuQuilt’s website.
I made twelve 8½” blocks and also used the GO! Strip Cutter die to cut the 1½” sashing strips. Each block uses one of the Check It Out collection, a matching basic batik and the neutral I also used for the sashing strips.
Does this look like a dog who is enjoying getting his picture taken? Nope, I think little Sadie has told him how boring it can be. I am hoping to get Mickey into a groomer this week as he is getting pretty shaggy.
I think little Mickey is tired of having his picture taken; boy was that a big yawn!
Take a look at how easy this block is to make! I used all half square triangle blocks and one 4½” square block to create this 8½” unfinished block.
If you don’t have the AccuQuilt cutter and dies, you can still cut the pieces with a rotary cutter and make the quilt. The half square triangle blocks can be made using the instructions from my Simple Pinwheel Table Runner tutorial. Here is another tutorial that shows how to make the half square triangles an easy way.
