New Wonky Heart AccuQuilt die
Have you seen the new Wonky Heart die from AccuQuilt? This die creates a block that looks like paper piecing but is actually easily pieced together. Keep reading and I'll show how fast you can make this block, I have all kinds of ideas for future projects! There is also a link to a free pattern at the end of the post!
Like all AccuQuilt dies, the Wonky Heart die comes with color diagrams to help you create the block. The blocks are 6" finished blocks and will also work with the AccuQuilt GO! 6" and 12" Qubes.
This is a great project for layer cakes. A 10" square of fabric fits perfectly over the die. I am using some of my batiks from Island Batik.
Can you see the heart in the center of the die? I should have removed the light peach from the left side of the heart die, sorry. Cutting 2 different layers of fabric gives you 2 blocks
Start by piecing the top left corner, you'll be surprised how fast this goes together!
Here is a closeup of the block sections.
I haven't decided what I'm going to make with the blocks.....I might add some other batiks from my stash for a scrappy look. I pulled out the 6" AccuQuilt Go! Qube and used the rectangle die.
Next week I'll be sharing a tutorial on the AccuQuilt blog for a Wonky Heart table topper that is perfect for fall. Right now we are having a heat wave and it is miserable outside......I am waiting for sweatshirt weather!
