Bobbing Along -Block on Board Hop!

SEW Have you been BOB-bing Along?

Welcome to my day on the BOB Blog Hop!

I've blogged about my handy GO! Accuquilt cutter before...
My last project using it was my
 Fields of Irises Flowering Snowball Quilt.

I was so happy when the fabulous people over
at Accuquilt invited me to join in their BOB Blog Hop

Do You know BOB?
BOB makes quilting so easy.
I chose to share the Rob Peter to Pay Paul BOB.

Rob Peter to Pay Paul is a Block on Board aka BOB -
 every shape needed to make the classic block
is included on two small  die boards.
It’s a easy, fast, and convenient to use this die!
And really,
how long would it take to cut all those
curved pieces by hand?
(I know I wouldn't even try without my BOB)
I was inspired by the inevitable
change in the weather.
The leaves will soon be
turning to the shades of Autumn.
No more will there be flowers blooming
from the summer containers.
 We will be seeing glowing wit hues of reds, oranges,
and yellows.

I decided to stray away for the
traditional look of
the Rob Peter to Pay Paul block and
make something a bit different.
The die is so versatile,
there is no problem changing
things up a bit.

I hand quilted the entire piece
with coordinating Aurifil 12 wt. thread.
This was my second curved
pieced quilt.
 I always enjoy a challenge,
but this Accuquilt die took the
trouble out of curves.
You can also pick up this beautiful pattern on Accuquilt
