The Bowtie Quilt from Quiltnotes All Blogs

This week I started working on 2" finished bowtie blocks. I bought the new 4" Qube Mix and Match plus the companion sets. If you don't have an AccuQuilt cutter yet, I have included instructions below to make a 4" finished bowtie block the traditional way.


These pieces were cut using the 4" Companion Set - Corners. The background is cut with die #11.1 and the small triangle is cut with die #12.1.


Sew the triangle to the bowtie background.

The bowtie accent fabric is cut from die #6. This die cuts 4 squares. When you put 6 ...

Tuesday Tips: AccuquiltGo Chisel Die & Braid Strip from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Since I last talked about my new obsession with my AccuquiltGo cutter (see last post) I’ve been busy trying out the dies I already own to make as many different blocks as I can. It’s fun to take apart a block and find the die shapes to make them. While playing, I discovered a new use for my Chisel Die.

Well, I didn’t really discover it—lots of other quilters discovered this… But I discovered their discovery (thank you Pinterest). So of course I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

Did you know you can ...

AccuquiltGo! Thoughts & Bear’s Paw Block from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I purchased an Accuquilt Go die cutter awhile ago and have made so many great projects with it, including tumbler block baby quilts and Dresden Plate table toppers. But I wanted to use a combination of dies to create some other basic, well-known quilting blocks.

My original purchase of my AccuquiltGo! included a combination die (above). It has on it a 2” finished square, a couple 2” finished half square triangles (HST), and a 4” finished square.

Hey, that’s all I need to make the basic Bear’s Claw block! Perfect.

I haven’t yet purchased any of the ...

Like Sex but Better from Sew Preeti Quilts

Picture this - a warm, sunny day on a beach. Blue skies with just a tiny cloud or two, and the aquamarine waters are neither warm nor cold. And there I am in a hammock made up of your sweet comments, gently cradling me. That is how I feel; thank you for your hugs. I love you and I feel loved!!!

Greens on the Color Wheel


According to Angela, March is Green.  She did not specify light or dark, bright or dingy. So here they are. 
All the greens in five blocks total.

Pumping Up The Volume from From the Strawberry Patch...

After getting the Star Flower quilt all quilted and the binding attached, I needed a bit more color saturation to brighten the day. I dug deep into my bin of 4.5" square scraps and after a quick pass through the die cutter I set to work on this scrappy hexagon quilt. It's vibrant and fun. I have half of it pieced as it's shown here on the design wall. It will measure 56" X 72" at completion,

This Week At Five Oaks from Quiltnotes All Blogs

This weekend I started cutting my next scrap quilt I'm calling Scrap Garden. I've never been good at coming up with clever names for quilts but it's a scrap quilt and I'm making plans for a garden so Scrap Garden works for me.

The quilt is made from two classic blocks: 


Shoo Fly
Consists of half square triangles and squares.


Fifty Four Forty Or Fight
Consists of a square, 4-patches and tri-rec units.

NOTE: The name of this block comes from a political campaign in the mid 1800's and it refers to a latitude coordinate ...

Corner 4-Patch - One Block Many Quilts from Quiltnotes All Blogs


The Corner 4-Patch block finishes at 8" and is easy and fun to make. There is a 4-patch unit in the corner. The rest of the block consists of a 4″ square and a 4″ x 8″ rectangle. Use scraps, fat quarters, yardage or a combination of all three. Use strip piecing, patchwork piecing or both to construct this unit. 

4-Patch: Finished size is 4". Made with 2-1/2" strips cut from width of fabric (WOF) of one dark and one light fabric. To really make the 4-patch pop, choose light and dark fabrics that contrast with the field fabrics ...

Starry Path Quilt Using AccuQuilt from Quiltnotes All Blogs


The first quilt I made for my daughter used this block. It was finished in March of 1994. I don't recall actually piecing the quilt but I probably used cardboard or plastic templates I traced from a magazine. then cut them out.

Here is that quilt today.


You can't see the border too well from this picture, but each of the four accent fabrics are used to make the four 2" borders. 

Back then I made quilt labels from cross stitch lettering.


These days, it's a miracle if I even think to attach a label, much less ...

Another Chaser Block Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 Today I thought I would share another finish from the third module of my Scrap Mixology pattern series.  This block design is called the Chaser Block.




This fun 100% scrap quilt is made with two colors of scraps with a bunch of low volume bits to create all that sashing.




You can see all the scrappy goodness a bit better in this photo.  I used red and blue in this quilt but you could certainly use any combination you wanted.



This version of the Chaser block uses all the same sized rectangles.  I used one of my AccuQuilt dies to ...

Disappearing Shoo Fly Using AccuQuilt from Quiltnotes All Blogs



What is a Disappearing Shoofly Block? Start with a Shoofly Block.



Cut it into 4 equal pieces.





Rearrange those pieces.




The Shoofly block has disappeared and the Disappearing Shoofly block appears.

With the AccuQuilt Fabric Cutting systems, there is no need to piece a block just to make it disappear. We simply take the desired block and piece that.

The video below shows how to determine which dies to use to cut the Disappearing Shoofly blocks. You find the smallest part of the block first. Next you find the repeat ...

Star Flower Sew-Along from From the Strawberry Patch...

I took part in a Sew Along back in 2013. Yes, you read that right; it was here, on a Crafty Fox's blog. As you might surmise I didn't keep up the pace. I did find, when I unearthed box #5 (of 8) of my UFO's this week, that I did have all of the star flowers pieced. Why did I ever lose steam on this project? Well, maybe, it could be all those thousands of Y-seams! Anyway, there's no time like the

Two Simple Scrap Quilts from Quiltnotes All Blogs

 I'm working on two scrap quilts using the same block... a 2" x 4" finished rectangle. I ran out of enough variety so I'm cutting more from the mountain of scraps I have.


I used my AccuQuilt 8" Qube rectangle die to cut the 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" rectangles. I have been cutting these from scraps off and on for about a year. After cutting, I put them in a little container from the dollar store.



I waited until I had a good amount and variety before starting. I want both quilts to be 60" x 80 ...

Project Quilting Season 12.1-I am rising... from Sew Sunshine


"Like a phoenix"
30" x 32"
Accuquilt die cut triangles
Diamond straight line quilting
My own design

Project Quilting has started again. New year, new one week challenge. The first challenge is based off the Patone color(s) of the year Illuminating (yellow) and Ultimate Gray.



Those colors felt sort of opposite to me for some reason. I felt the doom of the gray and the light of the yellow and the first thing I thought of was rising from the ashes ...like a phoenix.  Got out pater and pencils and decided equilateral triangles were the answer.  With my limitations ...

Piecing the Winding Ways Quilt from Quiltnotes All Blogs

 This was on my bucket list of quilts to make. Many years ago my friend, Ramona, taught a Winding Ways class at Fabrics Etc. in Webster Texas. I didn't take the class but I always admired the sample quilt hanging in the shop.

In this video I show you how to cut the pieces with the AccuQuilt and then piece the blocks. If you don't have an AccuQuilt yet, you can use templates to cut and piece the block the same way I describe in the video. You can purchase a template set from Sewing Machines Plus -->> Winding ...
