Strip Twist Quilt Block from Goer

I sent this quilt block off today to be part of a collaboration quilt. We were asked to use only Kona Solids in bright rainbow colors. I had a great time selecting a bold rainbow of color. My solid stash isn't that diverse, but I had what I needed. (This evening I found more Kona that would have been helpful, but I hadn't put it away from a project last month. Oops!)

The block comes from the Strip Twist tutorial by Bonnie Hunter. Since I was only making one block, I selected 16 colors and cut my pieces ...

Friendship from Zarkadia Quilts

The Friendship quilt block is a relatively easy to make, but also a bit tricky, especially regarding seam matching. But once you get the grip of it, and by using the right values on your blocks, the Friendship quilt block can really make ypur quilt special. It is also really scrappy friendly, and you can use up most of your scraps, just with a single block!

Sunset Isle header

Another month and another row added to our Sunset Isle quilts and another check in on Instagram on #sunsetislequilt!

Sunset Isle Quilt on Instagram by Blossom Heart Quilts

MONTH 11

I love the look of row 11, but I’m not gonna lie – I was very grateful to use my AccuQuilt 8″ Qube dies to help me make the blocks for this row. And while I’m being honest, I used to be worried about how Liberty would go in an AccuQuilt. I mean, I know that the dies can cut a huge range of fabrics, including denim, interfaced fabric for applique, felt and of course regular quilting cotton ...
