Hi everyone, it is Connie from Freemotion by the River and today I have a fast and easy Serendipity Flower Basket Mini Quilt made with the AccuQuilt GO! Qube Specialty Set called Serendipity by Edyta Sitar. I do a monthly blog post on AccuQuilt’s blog and recently received this neat Qube Specialty Set. It includes 8 different dies and I am going to have so much fun making small quilt projects with it.

It also includes files for embroidery machines, I don’t have one of those but sure wish I did! In the meantime I will continue to do my free motion applique on my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine.

I had a batik layer cake from Island Batik that I thought would make a perfect background for my mini quilt and wanted to just share how I cut the squares from the 10 inch batik blocks. It is really neat how you have very little waste and get perfect squares each time.

Take a 10 inch square and fold it in half, then fold in half again.

Place over the top of the #550479 Square die. You will cut four – 2 13/16″ squares at a time.

It is always nice to have helpers when cutting out the accents and flowers. My granddaughters always enjoy coming over and helping me with AccuQuilt projects. I cut some 5 inch strips of batiks and added fusible webbing to them so the girls could cut out the flowers.

They always enjoy spending time in my new quilt studio. Last month I shared my Fabulous Quilt Studio on AccuQuilt’s blog, be sure and check it out if you missed it.6 year old helper

I used 4 different dies to make my Specialty Flower Basket Mini Quilt, there are 4 more dies included in the set!Serendipity Specialty Set by Edyta Sitar

All of my applique was done with my vintage 15-91 Singer and a darning foot. This really makes fast work of applique.
