AccuQuilt has 11 New Dies that they are releasing this Spring!
We are participating in their Block Party Blog Hop to premier their new dies!
Every day, a blogger will feature one of AccuQuilt’s new dies and give you ideas as to some of the fun projects you can create with AccuQuilt!

As you know, it can get a little busy, now with 5 grandchildren AND getting my quilts done.
Sue and I have teamed up to make this project using AccuQuilt’s new 4″ finished Kite die.

When we received the die, we were very excited to see how it would sew up.
Sue and I cut the fabrics a little bit bigger than the outline of the die.

After running them through my AccuQuilt GO, we successfully got the exact size we needed.

I laid out the patches so that we could get a visual of how the blocks would look.

The notches at the ends of the patches are such a great way to position your fabrics for sewing. We love it!

After sewing a few patches together, I can use the design wall to figure out what to do with them.

I think I will place the patches on point and make the Hummingbird Block. Before I finalize anything though, we will make some more. They go so fast with the Accuquilt!

Sue and I will post the progress on this project on our Blog Hop day, the 28th.
