Put your foot down #100

This article is sponsored by Island Batik and industry partners: AccuQuilt, Hobbs Batting, Schmetz Needles and Aurifil Thread. Island Batik is a US based manufacturer, importer and distributor of cotton batik, rayon batik and hand-printed cotton from Indonesia.

Wow, have we finally reached 100? You realize if we were talking about years Put your foot down would be a century old so I think we need to celebrate with a pattern giveaway. But more on that later.

The sprained wrist is on the mend and I am able to sew again which means I have been working on my June Challenge for Island Batik. The theme of the challenge is to “Spread Love and Joy” with AccuQuilt.

We must use the Block on Board die we received in box 1 and pair it with the GO! Qube 8″ Mix and Match to create a new design.

The fabric I am using is a 10″ stack of Peacock Galore designed by Claudia Pfeil for Island Batik, along with light and dark Foundations.

The BOB die AccuQuilt sent to me is the 8″ finished Snails Trail. So far from the 8″ Qube I have used the 2″ finished hst, 4″ finished hst and 2″ finished square dies. Last week I shared the photo below, these were cut with the 2″ finished hst.

More on this next week.

Peacock Party


  1. Peacock Galore is such a pretty collection. I love the Snails Trail block and am totally intrigued with the peeks at your June IB project. Congrats on #100 and what a lovely giveaway to celebrate.

    • Denise

      It was perfect for where this project went. In the beginning I had no idea where it was going I just knew what dies I had to use. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. I’ve always wanted to make a snails trail quilt, I’m excited to see your block. I look forward to viewing the finished quilt, happy stitching!

    • Denise

      It had been on my list for years, this is my second one with the block.

    • Denise

      Thanks me too. It’s tough when you have to ask for help.

  3. Congratulations on 100! Looking forward to the next 100 too.

    • Denise

      Thank you Tracy. Any new dies you couldn’t resist?

  4. Hi Denise! I’m so glad to hear that your wrist is doing better. I’m not sure if it was your dominant hand or not but either way, it’s surprising how much you cannot do with a sprained wrist. Right?! Good thing you gave it the rest it needed. Those HSTs look just perfect. Imagine that – that’s the whole idea, right?! I’m hoping you have a happy, safe holiday weekend. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Denise

      Thank you, the same to you all. Actually I am ambidextrous and all was good unless it was a 2 handed job. Just finished quilting the IB quilt so I hope to share it on Monday 🙂

  5. Hi Denise, I must have missed something – I didn’t realise that you had sprained your writs – even if you’re ambidextrous, that is bound to slow you down. Make sure that you don’t over do it – you want to mend well and quickly! (yes Mom!) Thanks so much for featuring both of my quilts! That’s a double WOW! Looking forward to seeing your snail’s trail quilt. That looks like a lot of piecing to me! and Happy 100th Put Your Foot Down. That’s wonderful. Get well and take care.

    • Denise

      Thank you. It did slow me down and there were a lot of things I could not do. So glad I can write with either hand or work would have been a disaster.

    • Denise

      Thank you Lori. Yesterday I over did it a little at work and had a sore hand last night but at it again this morning.
