Buckeye Beauty Blocks

I started making these blocks last spring before we headed back to Michigan. I just counted and I have 30 made so far.

I won a layer cake of the white Moda Solid and one of the blue prints as well as the layer cake papers from Moda several years ago.

I found the red Aunt Grace print in a thrift shop recently and I thought it might go with these blocks.

I’ll be honest, this is not my favorite way to make blocks. It’s a very clever idea, very accurate, and there is very little fabric waste. But it takes forever and this much rotary cutting bothers my shoulder. I’d rather use my Accuquilt dies. You can read about how these Cake Mix papers work here.

Each “page” makes two blocks. I’m going to try to do a few blocks each day until they are done. Or maybe I’ll binge and do them all at once……

Have a great day!

    You’re right about the tediousness of the papers. I thought it was brilliant when they first appeared on the market but it’s too much work for my old back. Accuquilt is the only way to go these days.

    I like the concept of the papers, but don’t like the added work.
