For this Blog Hop, AccuQuilt be promoting BOB (Block on Board) dies!
“These awesome, convenient dies let you cut everything you need for a block on one die board! Here are some facts about BOB dies:
Speed — Cut an entire block in just one pass.
Utility — All the shapes needed to create a block on one board.
Value — You don’t need to buy multiple dies to cut out a block.
Ease — You don’t have to think about what shapes go together to create a block.”
During this Blog Hop, AccuQuilt has made the pattern corresponding to each bloggers blog post free to download at www.accuquilt.com.
I opened my brand new 12″ Ohio star Die (55174) today. It is great that you can make a whole quilt with only one Die. I am very excited to see how it sews up.
I cut the fabrics a little bit bigger than the outline of the die.
After running them through my Accuquilt GO, I successfully got the exact size I needed.
Since I decided to make two different colors of Stars I divided my fabrics so each cut would make one Block.
The notches at the ends of the patches are such a great way to position your fabrics for sewing. Love it!
You can use the 4 1/2″ portion of the Die for cutting the center of the block, but I found this really cute Michael Miller fabric called Atomic Cats. I thought the three cats grouped together would be perfect for my centers. I used Quilt in a Day’s 4 1/2″ Fussy Cut template to cut each one the same.
Quilt designed and pieced by Sue Bouchard.
