“Peek into batiks” QAL – Block 8 video tutorial

Peek into batiks BOM - free quilt pattern

I can’t believe it’s the end of August!

Block 8 today! Do you like how the quilt is turning out? I have to admit I wasn’t a batiks lover but this quilt has made me look at batiks in a different way. The colours are so vibrant, and what’s not to like about this quilt?

Let’s get to it!

How to make block 8 of Peek into Batiks

Materials for the full quilt

Or

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.

3 log cabin quilt blocks video tutorial

Two star blocks: mills stars and 6 pointed star video tutorial

Two stars, 2 techniques.

Freezer paper foundation piecing

To make Mill and Stars block we’ll learn a foundation piecing technique that uses freezer paper.

Freezer paper templates are reusable because you don’t need to stitch through the paper. And removing the paper is a breeze! I hope you enjoy this technique.

Pattern suggestions for these 2 blocks

Block 1: Bijoux quilt pattern

The pattern includes all the fabric needs and assembly instructions as well as the paper templates for foundation piecing featured on the video as well as traditional templates.

For regular paper piecing you’ll have to use all four pieces in the template.

  • Bijoux quilt pattern

Block 2: 6-pointed star

This 6-pointed star technique, developed in 1991 by Marci Baker, is from the book Oh My Stars! which has 14 different projects. Check it out!

On the video I use a 60 degree ruler. While a 60 degree ruler isn’t necessary, if you intend to cut a lot of 60 degree triangles, it can be a god investment.

How to make this block without a 60 degree ruler?

Learn how to use your straight ruler to cut at 60 degree angles:
