“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!

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.

Quilt magnets pattern – video tutorial

I loved making these tiny 1 1/2″ blocks so much that I thought you would too.

The video demonstrates how to make the block with foundation piecing.

In such small sizes I find it’s a lot easier to get an accurate block than using traditional piecing.

Let’s get to it!

How to make a finished 1 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ quilt magnet

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.
