Getting ready for the Island Batik box #2

I recently got a notification of shipment #2 coming from Island batik!
so I started organizing my UFO and IB bins I have stacked under my ironing board and now the 2 top left stacks are empty and ready!

so that meant that some scraps ended up in the scrap bins
 and some larger chunks ended up with my yardage stacks
 I posted these pictures online and people wanted to see more of my room so here's a peek at my Accuquilt dies on 2 1/2 shelves!

all my qube sets!

and I've shown this board before, it's my "to be quilted" board, first there's the name of the quilt, then the size of the top, the batting size if it's cut, the backing if it's ready and a check mark for label and binding.
at the bottom I have measurements of scrap batting chunks that I can then move up into the chart if the size fits.

Here's my long arm

and my table and counter with embroidery machine and GO BIG cutter
(and that's Swiffer on the floor)

And here's my ironing board and the bins underneath and with Swiffer and Anja :)
 Later Swiffer moved up on top of the quilts!

Baby Goldilocks Row Along quilt is done

I finally got around to quilting this cute Goldilocks QAL quilt

It was the 6" QUBE version of the Row along from earlier this year.
It measures 36" x 48"
 I quilted with a pastel variegated thread, it's hard to tell but it's really cute
 For the backing I had this sort of vintage looking yardage with children on it, so I thought that would be fitting for the back.

I still have more of the QAL tops to quilt, but I'm getting there :)

QUBE travel RR QAL block 3

Did you enjoy the flying geese last week? or get sick and tired of them?

Now it's time for more triangles but different ones!

Here's this week's block
A triangle block

You'll be using die #14 from the 6" QUBE set!

There's 4 sets of these rows with 3+3 reversed blocks.

and the colors are Black and white or A and B.
From each color cut (2) 3" WOF strips and cut out 24 of #14 triangles- 12 + 12 reversed, I was using solids so it didn't matter which way the fabric was on the die, but if you fan fold it ends up working out that half are opposite anyways.
 Then sew together 12 sets of each.
This is a die I LOVE where the dog ears are cut off, so the fabric pieces match up perfectly!
don't forget to press the seams OPEN!
 Here's 12 of each
 Now sew sets together of these low mountain blocks like this.

Now sets of 3, so there's 4 of these!

And these are sewn to the top of the flying geese from last week.
The seams do line up with each other on every other geese unit so that's a good place to pin! Mine weren't perfectly flat, but I pinned and pressed into submission!! ha ha
For rotary cutting it's a 2 1/8" x 4 5/16" rectangle cut diagonally, now be careful sewing it together and make sure it's 2" x 3 1/2" unfinished! (1 1/2" x 3" finished)or you can just cut rectangles that are that size or 2" squares, that's up to you.


Here's pictures from last week's participants
