Gender Neutral Color Palooza

Baby Quilt

I’m so lucky to be an Island Batik Ambassador!  Especially this year.  This year Island Batik has partnered with Accuquilt!  We were given an Accuquilt Go Cutter and dies.  I received the Mix & Match 8″ Block set of dies (Go Cube!).  We were tasked with creating a Baby Quilt.

This set includes 8 dies & 13 block patterns.  With these dies you can make 72 different block designs! Wowza!

I chose my blocks and started designing in EQ8 to see what it would look like.

When I was satisfied with the fabrics and balance I started cutting.

I pulled my Island Batik fabrics and started with the Diamond Star Block Pattern.

I needed 8 side triangles for my flying geese units, so I folded my fabric into quarters,  centered it over the die, placed the cutting mat on top and rolled it through the cutter. Presto – 8 side triangles.

Now this is a fun “Gender Neutral Color Palooza” Baby Quilt!  It measurers 38″ x 56″.  It was lovingly pieced with Aurifil Thread, filled with Hobbs Heirloom Premium Cotton Batting and creatively cut with my Accuquilt Go Cutter!  Not to mention these fabulous colorful fabrics from Island Batik!
