Use Up Your Test Blocks with a BOB Sampler

Jan 8, 2022 7:00:00 AM / by Jennifer Strauser posted in Tutorials, Tips & Tricks


Hi! It’s Jen from Dizzy Quilter. I’m back again, and I'm playing with my collection of BOB (Block On Board) dies. I love my BOBs. They make creating a complicated block easy.

Are you a rule follower who makes a test block each time you use a new BOB die? Then you probably have a whole stack of orphan blocks just waiting to be used. I have the perfect quilt project for you today. 

(If you're a ruler breaker, like me, gather up your favorite BOBs and make one block from each.)

Hi!  It’s Jen from Dizzy Quilter, back with a scrappy project to help clean up your studio. I don’t know about you, but by the end of the holiday season, my sewing studio is a disaster.

Hi!  It’s Jen from Dizzy Quilter, with a quilt I made using the Cleopatra’s Fan Die

Have you seen this block? I thought I was pretty knowledgeable on old quilt patterns, but I have never seen this one before I saw it on the AccuQuilt website

Once I saw it, I HAD TO HAVE IT! I’m a huge fan of curved piecing, but not a fan of cutting with templates. And this block only has, you know, ten different pieces.

Hi!  I’m Jennifer from, and I’m obsessed with dachshunds. 

Well, I’m actually obsessed with just one, Oscar, but I love to craft and decorate with dachshund stuff. 

When I saw the GO! Gingham Dog Die I was initially disappointed.  Sure, it is cute, but it isn't my dog.  Then I realized that I could hack the Gingham dog and get a fairly good dachshund. 

Want to see how?
