Hi everyone, it is Connie with another fun AccuQuilt tutorial. Today I am sharing a precious little appliqué baby quilt designed with the new GO! 12" Qube Companion Set-Corners and the GO! Flower Bunch appliqué die.

The new 12" GO! Qube Companion Set-Corners makes it fast and easy to create a quilt project. Let's get started on this appliqué baby quilt!

Cut 2 each of the corner pieces in 20 different prints. (the fabrics I used were 5" x 10" rectangles from a layer cake) using the GO! Qube Companion Set-Corners Bowtie die (55772).

Cut 10 sets of a flower, circle center and two leaves in assorted prints using the GO! Flower Bunch die (55332).

Apply Heat n Bond Lite to the back of your scraps following the directions on the package before running the fabric through your AccuQuilt GO! Cutter.  I used a blanket stitch to applique the flowers.

Sew using a 1/4" seam allowance throughout.

Sew a half square triangle to each of the Bowtie corners. Layout your corner pieces as shown below. Use two different prints for each block.

Your blocks will measure 6 1/2" unfinished.

Sew your blocks together.

I like to sew 4 blocks together for a larger block and then sew 2 of them together but you can also sew rows of 4 blocks together for your baby quilt.

Add your batting and backing and quilt as desired. Use the 2 1/2" strip cutter die to cut your binding.
