Accuquilt Go!

How much Fun is the Accuquilt Go? I am having fun playing with my Go! Pictured is my quick baby quilt made from the Udder Cowboy fabric from Moda using one of the many Go! triangle templates. The Go makes cutting sew much faster. If you want the Go! for Christmas you better get your order in fast.

I have also cut snowflakes, Christmas trees, bears, ducks and hearts from the templates. There are lots of ideas on the Go website for what you can create using the Go templates.

Moda Sampler Box

I am so excited. I received my order of Moda Sampler Boxes today. Each Moda Sampler Box contains 12 miniature (2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch) charm packs of 40 squares each. The fabrics are all from the 2010 Spring fabric lines. Each box contains the history of the Charm quilt by Barbara Brackman as well as five different templates that can be used to make a charm quilt. Additionally, ten project ideas are also included in the sampler box template book.

Fun Gifts

Several gift giving occasions have come my way of late. I love to sew and when I have a gift to give it makes it even more fun. With inspiration from the website I created a diaper bag using 1/2 a Sultry Honey Bun and some coordinating Eva fabric. The most fun part was creating the inside of the bag and making goodies to go inside. I added a lined zipper pocket, a removable center pocket and a padded side pocket. Extras for the diaper bag included a vinyl coated changing mat made using iron on Heat and Bond vinyl, a vinyl lined bib embellished with an Accuquilt duck applique' and a burp pad made from a prefolded diaper, a bit of Eva fabric and large ric rac. Way fun project.

For a young lady getting married soon I made a reversible apron using Nouveau fabric. The main apron was a small floral print with teal accents. I embellished the apron bodice with a teal band and large rust colored ric rac. Ric rac was added to the pocket as well. The reverse of the apron was the teal fabric. The bride to be looked so cute in her apron.
