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.”

With my busy schedule, Sue took on our project for this blog hop.
Here is Sue’s fun quilt with the Ohio Star Die, enjoy!

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.

After sewing the Quarter Square patches together and cutting my centers, I used the design wall to figure out how to place my patches.

IMG_4760.JPGMy quilt top sewed together so nicely since everything was cut with such accuracy. The top finished at 48″ x 64″.
The Accuquilt GO is the best!

Quilt designed and pieced by Sue Bouchard.
