AccuQuilt has released a new die! I was super excited to try this out.
It took no time at all to cut the pieces I needed.
First you piece the fan blades together.
Then you add the little quarter circle piece. These photos show my first time piecing this block. See the little notches? You can pin at the notches to keep everything perfectly aligned.
Sewing that part seemed scary, but it worked out just fine. Next, line up the outer piece, pin, and stitch.
Not bad for my very first block!
For the next block, I skipped the pins altogether. I lined up the pieces at the beginning of the curve and took a few stitches.
Then I lined up the first notches and continued stitching.
When I got to the first notches, I lined up the next set.
I actually had better success without pins and it was much faster!
There are so many layout options with this block. Here are a few.
Come back on Friday to see my finished quilt!
Have a great day!
