Stitching has begun on my March Challenge which will also double as my Salt and Sand blog hop finish. A while back I purchased these 5″ squares of Buttercup by Island Batik, designed by Kathy Engle. I knew I’d use them but at the time I wasn’t sure for what, I just knew I had to have them.
When I saw the theme of the hop Carol had come up with this collection immediately came to mind but no design. Well, I have a design in mind and for most of the quilt I can use my AccuQuilt. These patches were cut with the 4″ quarter square triangle die.
And if you follow me on IG chances are pretty good you saw this photo Saturday. Sewing and chocolate…not much can beat that combo.
While the AccuQuilt does clip the dog ears you will have them if you press seams to one side as you can see above. For this quilt full of hst’s I thought nesting the seams would be my best bet instead of pressing open because there is just too much to try to accurately line up. Oh and for those concerned, there was no fabric damaged by melted chocolate fingers.
Hope you stop back by on Thursday to check my progress.
In case you missed it, there is a free paper pieced barn block that I created for a quilt for AccuQuilt. You can see that post here.
