AccuQuilt

I was very lucky to receive an AccuQuilt GO! with an 8″ Qube and Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day book of patterns.

I had considered purchasing one for a while but I was undecided. Having used one I really like it. It’s fast and accurate which makes it a joy to use.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Quilted brooches video tutorial

Lately I’ve been getting into tiny quilting if you can call it that.

This time I’ve made 2″ X 2” quilted brooches.

Let’s get to it!

How to make a finished 2″ x 2″ quilted brooch

Foundation piecing paper

I used regular copy paper but you may find it to be a bit thick.

You can use special paper for foundation piecing if you prefer.

Foundation paper ruler

Note: I recently started to use an Add a quarter ruler, the yellow ruler in the video, after some followers recommended it and I have to say it’s a true time saver.
