My First Accuquilt Project

As I posted a few days ago, I have a new Accuquilt Studio die cutter. It is an amazing tool for cutting precise fabric shapes for quilt piecing. My first project used the tumbler block. The pieces were all exactly the same size, and they fit together perfectly. I've always wanted to make a pink and green quilt, and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity! I pieced it, and then quilted it on my Statler Stitcher with a beautiful feather design.

My New Quilting Tool

A few months ago I was at the AQS Quilt Show in Lancaster, PA and I bought a new tool for my business. I had done the research and decided what I wanted, and they had a deal I just couldn't resist! This is what the UPS man delivered...

The Accuquilt Studio is a die cutting tool for cutting fabric for quilting. It cuts multiple shapes that are very accurate and all exactly the same. I bought dies to cut squares, triangles, strips, hearts, cats, tumblers, and lots more.

Stay tuned to see what I can do with this wonderful tool!
