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!
Before I go, I have to let you in on a couple great deals. Accuquilt is offering 28% off all orders over $28! You need to use the code, SAVE28, at checkout. They also have 50% off the GO! Starter Set ! That deal is good until August 3rd. No code needed for that one.
Have a great day!

What a good idea. It’s also helpful that all the containers are a different color. You’ll breeze right through these. The hand quilting should be fun on the road.
Looking forward to seeing how these turn out. I, too, like to kit my quilts, but the scale tends to be larger. Maybe I need to make a few small quilts sometime soon, just to have a finish to enjoy.
Kitting up these little guys ahead of time really makes the quilt go together fast. I love all these choices!
