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.
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!
