New Block Party Dies from AccuQuilt

I’m so excited about the new Block Party Dies from AccuQuilt! I can’t decide if my favorite is the GO! Flowering Snowball cutting die or the GO! Kite cutting die.

Many years ago I found this 1930s Hummingbird quilt. I enjoy recreating vintage quilts using new fabrics. So, for years, I’ve wanted to make a project using this wonderful block. But the thought of cutting out all those pieces using a template was….daunting!

Now, I can cut out the shapes using AccuQuilt’s new GO! Kite cutting die! Woo Hoo! Just think how much easier and faster that is going to be!

My project is still in the planning stages. But I’ve started thinking about what fabrics I want to use. I could use just two fabrics from my Urban Classics collection, plus white for background…

Or, I could use four different fabrics in each block with a white or gray background…

Or, I could use bright batiks with a navy background…

Or … well, you get the idea!! I hope you’ll join me for the AccuQuilt Block Party Blog Hop, May 19-30. Be sure to visit my blog on May 29! I’ll be revealing my fabric choice and project!

Until then…Happy Quilting! ~Nancy

  1. I will have to check out the new dies. I love my cutter, it makes cutting so much easier and faster. I just got the rag quilt die, so now i have to try it.
