Block Party

Today is my stop on the AccuQuilt Block Party! I mentioned the new dies here and now I want to show you my finished project!! I used the Kite die. This is a shape I love that I’ve got no interest in cutting with a rotary making it the perfect AccuQuilt project!

I played with lots of different layouts before I settled on this one. I’m plotting a whole quilt with this design. The pieces were so easy to place. The die cut shapes nestled perfectly!

As fast as this was to cut, it was almost as fast to piece. I finished piecing the top in about an hour and a half. And perfect points everywhere!

I did free motion quilting on this pillow. Always ready for more practice!! I used different designs to accentuate the shapes.

  1. Looks like a cool pattern… never really been one of my favourites, but that was then! LOL Love your pillow… is it possible to have too many pillow?? :)

  2. Very pretty cushion, May! Love the fabrics you chose and that your four blocks resulted in a secondary design with the pinwheel shape in the center. Your piecing is perfection and the quilting is such a compliment to the design! Well done!

  3. Wonderful pillow! Love the kite shape and love seeing it used in something so useful (I need pillows). Thank you for sharing the pillow design and your free motion quilting-something I keep wanting to try.
