New dies from Accuquilt

Did you see the cute new dies from Accuquilt?

First there's the new Owl accessories die
which was part of the GO ME set and not sold individually until now!
so many cute critters you can make with it.

Next are two dies where there are similar Studio dies but now they are finally made for the GO! and GO BIG!

First is the GO bib die, it's adorable too!
 (made me wish I still had a little one who used it)
It would be so easy to add velcro or cam snaps to it and decorate it any way you like!

 and lastly is the burp cloth
(though I laughed the first time I saw it and thought it was a sanitary pad- looked kind of huge though.... and I've read stories about poor countries learning to make these for girls so they can go to school or even just to make them out of cloth to not fill up the landfill and I think some have gotten a special die made for that too, but anyways, this is a burp cloth!)

some cute dies :)

-if you buy any of these thru my links I get a small commission

Getting organized

As you may know, I've been busy behind the scenes with secret projects so not much time for personal things, also running kids back and forth etc is taking away from quilty time.
Last week was the awards ceremony for middle school 3rd quarter
Solveig got Principal's award and A/B honor roll, it's actually the first time she didn't get A honor roll but that's because she's doing math 2 online and I remember Bjorn struggling in that too a bit.
 Also last week was a Young Author's award for the county, her and her buddy's stories were picked for finals (there were 50 students total out of I think 2000 stories from K-8th grade)

This weekend started the kid's Spring break, my friends from FL were doing a trade show at the fair grounds and got us tickets to go "help" not much help at all

 I took Solveig there and we walked around and got free samples and a facial at one place and it "sold me" because her face looked clear - well as good as a teenager can look and Solveig was excited too, so the sales pitch worked on us and we got some face cleaner/ lotion stuff and free stuff.

Oh and I've been organizing too, my printer used to be on the top shelf on the right and I had some bins already with stuff in them, like Island Batik stuff and UFOs, then I decided to move the printer to another room (it's wireless) and I ordered 12 more snap bins and look how neat it looks!
Don't worry the bins are not filled....Yet! ha ha

Our friends from FL are visiting now for a few days and I am still working on secret projects, so this week will probably be light from posts, we'll see

QUBE QAL block 17

This week's block is a spinner star block
it's a full sized block 1:1 
I know it looks very similar to block #1 but that one used the chisel shape.

 You'll be making 2 full sized blocks and 2 half blocks

It's not a hard block but a bit "tricky" with the parallelogram sections.
Unlike last week  and die #7 you were able to fold the fabric on the die and cut out reverse pieces, this time it has to just face ONE direction, so either cut WOF strips OR use a solid fabric that's the same on the front and back, this way it doesn't matter which way is up ;)

As you can see the block is also still grey.
You'll need dies #5 and #7
Cut out (12) of grey A and die #7 and have them all face the same way as above.
Then cut out (24) of grey B and die #5
and (12) of grey C and die #5
and lastly (36) of white or background color and die #5

here's my 6" version
I cut WOF strips for die #7

here's the 8" version, I used a batik for die #7 so you can't really tell which way is front or back

For the 10" version I used the red solid  for die #7 as that was the only one that was completely solid

and for the 12" set I used a solid grey for die #7

The first step is to add all the white #5 triangles to the #7 parallelograms and also to (12) of each fabric B and C

Then sew grey B triangles to the other side of the parallelograms and  sew the HSTs together with the B being on the top right, I started the seam where the bulk would be so I made sure the tips of the triangles would meet up right! (Of course I still iron all the seams open.

trim off the dog ears (I don't know why #7 is the only die that doesn't have those cut off)
Then sew the block sections together like this

Here's my 4 versions

Now sew the half blocks together like this

And now ONLY sew 4 of these together into 2 full blocks and leave the other 2 aside

here's my 4 versions

and now take last week's blocks and sew them in between!

and add these to the bottom of the quilts
here's my 6" version

and the 8" version, now I'm completely out of the yellow background fabric so this quilt is done, I might add a border though.
It measures 48 1/2" x 56 1/2" I think

Here's my 10" version

and the 12" version, it's way too big for my design wall now!
Only one more block to go and it's black!
It's a small block and for the whole row, so you can skip it or if you have black as your background color you can change it up and add white and stick that row on the top of the quilt, you'll see ;)

Here's blocks from last week's participants

Have fun!
