Baby Quilt

So how long would it take you cut out 625 Half Square Triangles ? With the Accuquilt Go  Cube, you can Mix and Match to create over 72 block designs, I chose the following die cuts, and it took me under an hour to cut all my pieces out  – That’s Crazy right? and not a dog ear in sight!!! – Happy days!!

I create my design on the EQ8 software.

This quilt was made using Island Batik fabrics given to me by Island Batik, as part of the Island Batik Ambassador Program

It took me almost 7 hours to sew these 625 pieces together, but I love the end result…
