Accuquilt Block Party - Flowering Snowball

 Welcome to my day on the
AccuQuilt Blog Hop Party
AccuQuilt has came out with 11 new dies
and I was excited when I got a chance
to try out the
New Flowering Snowball Die.
I have never sewn a curve for a quilt,
maybe sewn a sleeve or two on
a kiddos dress, but
never on a quilt.
Just a little intimidating.
I decided to use all solids. 
I love the simplicity
of solids.  I pulled out my
Kona Fat Quarters Fields of Irises.

Plus, the die works great using fat quarters.

I timed how quick it was
to cut out 10 blocks. 
You can find the results here.
Sew, what exactly did I come up with?

It measures at 60" square. 
 I haven't yet decided how
I would like to quilt it
so, if you have any grand suggestions.......
I would love them.
I have several more ideas
for this great die.
Thanks to Accuquilt
for letting me give it a whirl.
Pin It Now!
