Hi, I'm Marjorie and I have to say that the more I use the new AccuQuilt GO! Qube™ 10" Mix and Match Companion Sets the more I love them. It is so much fun to see how the blocks go together and the wonderful quilts. In this post, I'll show you how to use a single block and add a two-inch border to create a beautiful fall quilt. These blocks bring a modern look to the traditional quilt block shapes that we all know and love. Turn the blocks in different orientations and you will get even more quilt designs. I warn you, this is addictive!
Hi, It’s Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com and I'm excited to share how to take a single block using the GO! Qube™ Mix & Match 10" Block and the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set–Corners to make a striking 40"x 40" quilt with four blocks and a pieced border. The new AccuQuilt GO! Mix and Match 10" Block is a wonderful addition to any collection because you can easily calculate a quilt size since each block is 10". The blocks I used are from the 216 Block Brochure located on accuquilt.com allows quilters to choose from an infinite number of designs. Turn the blocks in different orientations and make even more quilt designs. Watch out. The endless design options can be addictive!
Summer is here and that means it’s not too soon to begin getting ready for the holidays. AccuQuilt has just released a new Studio Santa Stocking die for the Studio 2 Fabric Cutter, and I’m in love with it. I have made Christmas stockings in the past, but never have I made Christmas stockings so quickly and easily. These stockings are not only beautiful, they are big enough to actually hold lots of goodies.
Make Sawtooth Stars with Embroidery Machine Hexagons
This quilt was inspired by the Starstruck pattern from the AccuQuilt website with the traditional Sawtooth Star in beautiful bright colors. The Grandmother’s Flower Garden machine embroidery adds another traditional touch to this bright and modern looking quilt. Instructions for the pieced Sawtooth Star block can be found in the AccuQuilt GO! 72 Blocks pattern set. Using the AccuQuilt GO! 12” QUBE to make this block is a breeze. I love that all the shapes are at my fingertips and there’s no searching on my shelves for specific dies. The machine embroidery used is also easy as the stitches are light and the block is stitched in a single thread color, making the hexagon blocks complete in record time. For piecing the stars, a Tonga Treats 6 Pack Happy Hour by Daniela Stout was used and that provided a wonderful selection of colors.
