Hi everyone, this is Connie Kresin Campbell from Freemotion by the River and I have another easy tutorial to share with you.

 Scraps of different colors for the butterfly blocks and Heat n Bond Lite

 

Borders and binding cut separately.

Use a 1/4" seam allowance throughout.

The photo below shows the cutting for the bowtie blocks.

 

 

Pin and sew 1 cream 1-1/4" finished half square triangle to each of the teal and print bowtie units. Press toward the dark fabric.

Make 14 of each.

 

 

Pin and sew 1 teal and 1 print bowtie together. Press seams toward one side. Make 14 units.

Sew together to make seven bowtie blocks.

 

 

The photo below shows the cutting for the signature blocks.

 

 

Pin and sew 1—2-1/2" finished half square triangle on either side of the print 5" finished signature blocks as shown.

Make four.

 

 

Butterfly applique:

  • Apply Heat n Bond Lite to the back of the scrap batiks following directions on the package.
  • Place the butterflies on the 5" finished squares.
  • Choose your favorite way to appliqué. I used a Micron pen to draw the antennas.

Arrange your blocks as shown in the following photo.

 

 

Sew the blocks together and then the rows.

 

 

Add the signature blocks and remaining bowtie blocks to the top and bottom of the baby quilt.

 

 

Borders

Use the GO! Strip Cutter 2 1/2" (55017)

Print batik - Cut 3—2-1/2" strips for the first border (measure your quilt to make sure the measurements are the same).
  • Sub-cut 2—2-1/2" x 26-1/2" strips for the sides, pin and sew. Press toward the border.
  • Sub-cut 2—2-1/2" x 19-1/2" strips for the top and bottom, pin and sew. Press toward the border.
Cream batik - Cut 4—2-1/2" strips for the last border (measure your quilt to make sure the measurements are the same).
  • Sub-cut 2—2-1/2" x 28-1/2" strips for the sides, pin and sew. Press toward the dark border.
  • Sub-cut 2—2-1/2" x 23" strips for the top and bottom, pin and sew. Press toward the dark border.

Add your backing and batting and quilt as desired.

 

Binding

Use the GO! 2-1/2″ Strip Cutter to cut the binding. Machine or hand stitch your binding.

 

 

I hope you have enjoyed this fast and easy baby quilt made with the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and the new GO! 10" Qube dies.
