Swap Quilt

I’ve been multitasking lately. I am participating in a small quilt swap again. I found this little quilt on Pinterest and was quite taken with it so I decided to recreate it for the swap.

Apparently this little quilt was sold on eBay. The listing is no longer available so I have no info on it. I started by making two inch four patches for the center of the blocks. I don’t know the size of the original blocks.

Then I made 2 1/2 inch unfinished HSTs.

I cut them in half, corner to corner.

I need two sets of these for each small block. They are arranged as follows.

I used these Accuquilt dues to cut my pieces.

After trimming dog ears, I ended up with this little block.

8 more to go!

Also, I wanted to let you know that the sale on Studio dies and die cutters has been extended!

I’m pretty excited as there are a couple dies on my wish list and got busy over the weekend and forgot to order.

Have a great day!

    Very cute. I wish I could get dies here in Canada. Sadly, the shipping is costly from USA.
