AccuQuilt Ready. Set. GO! Challenge Baby Quilt - Chunky Twists

The April challenge for the Island Batik Ambassadors is
Baby Quilt.
Today is my day to show
Chunky Twists

As Island Batik Ambassadors,
this month is our first industry partner spotlight challenge.
The challenge is to use AccuQuilt dies to create a 40" - 48" baby quilt
using any pattern.

AccuQuilt generously provided the Island Batik Ambassodors with an

I chose a mixture of Island Batik stash builder fabrics and yardage.

The stash builder strips are 5" wide and perfect for the AccuQuilt dies.
I chose to use the Two by Two quilt block in the

The AccuQuilt was so much fun to use to cut the rectangles.
I even made a video to show how fast the rectangles were cut.

Baby quilts don't have to be pastel, I chose the colors of the rainbow.
I only used one die, the 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangle, #8 in the 
GO! Qube Mix and Match 8" Block.

This quilt was so quick to make and the top was ready in one afternoon.
The cutting was so accurate, the seams met perfectly and everything was so perfectly square.

Hobbs Heirloom Premium cotton batting really makes the straight and diagonal lined quilting pop.
Chunky Twists is finished with an Island Batik foundation Basic fabric - Vino for the binding
and finishes at 40" square.

It's amazing how modern tools can help us to create.
This is the beginning of lots of fun and accurate cutting.

Really beautiful quilt!

Carol said...

Gorgeous quilt--any baby (no matter the age) would love it. I have a Go! Baby but have never tried cutting any strips with it. Maybe I should... I'm sure there are dies that fit it. Anyway, love this quilt--simple but beautiful.
