I have a great project to share with you all today! I’m very excited about it…..but I can’t show you until later today. It’s all about the newest Die to Try Block on Board die that Accuquilt is releasing today!

Remember this little kit? Turns out it was the perfect thing to work on while waiting for someone to come pick up a piece of furniture I sold. Since there were an hour and a half late, I got the whole top done!
Now to decide on quilting. And I should probably kit up a few more of these little projects.
Over the weekend , I spent some time kitting up a few small quilts that I had on my bucket list. I get a lot of inspiration from vintage quilts on eBay. When I see something I might want to make, I take a screenshot and make a note on my iPad on what to cut. Like this:
I scribbled out a row and noted that I need 36 print diamonds and 24 solids. I may or may not keep the zig zag edge that full diamonds on the top and bottom would give me, but I can decide that later. I dug through my vintage scraps and used my Accuquilt 30 degree diamond die to cut my pieces. Here it is all ready to go.
These are Tupperware sandwich containers. I love them for small projects like this. Here is another note I made myself.
And here it is kitted up and ready to sew. I used my Accuquilt 2 inch square die and Accuquilt 2 inch strip die for these pieces.
This is my third little quilt. No note here, just an idea I had. I used my Accuquilt 2 1/2 inch strip die for this.
Hope this helps someone out. It sure helps me to actually get around to making those quilts on my bucket list!
