The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik and AccuQuilt.

September is over, but my project isn't quite finished. So more to come on this riot of color! Here's a glimpse at one of my finished blocks.

I chose a 10" stack of Island Batik Kaleidoscope for my blocks and used the AccuQuilt GO! 14" Bear's Paw die to cut all my pieces.

You can check out the other Ambassadors' finished projects while you're waiting to see mine. ;-)

Happy Friday! Today Fat Quarter Shop launched their Ocean Waves Quilt Block Pattern. I was one of eight makers to stitch together samples of the block.

 

I chose two fabrics from my scrap bin and got to work!

Using their Triangles on a Roll to stitch up my perfect 2 1/2" finished HSTs. This method was both speedy and effective. You pin your fabrics to the paper, stitch through all three layers on the dotted lines, cut on the solid lines, and remove the paper. I reduced my stitch length as I do with foundation paper piecing, and the newsprint paper was easy to tear away.

 

Fat Quarter Shop is offering a free block tutorial for these 10" finished blocks as well as a complete pattern in four sizes. There's even a quilt kit available!

Happy stitching! See what others are making at #oceanwavesquilt, #fqsquiltalong, and #fatquartershop on social media.
