Today is my day to post in the
Thanks to Marian at Seam To Be Sew who organized this blog hop.
She has so many ideas on how to get quilters involved with each other via the internet.
Also thanks to the sponsors who supplies giveaways to this event.
We were to design a block using 2 colors.
I saw the block in a quilt book I was looking at and decided to use it.
I didn't have much time left in May to make a large project.
I made one block and decided to make a table mat to give as a Christmas gift this December.
I drew the block in EQ7.
I made a few layouts and realized this block was used to make the Storm at Sea quilt.
I wanted to use my Accuquilt GO! Cutter with the Triangle in a Square die.
I do not have a die for the 4" finished Half Square Triangles in the corners, so I cut them myself.
(I have this on my wish list.)
The center baffled me for a moment. I printed the templates from EQ7.
The center square I cut with a rotary cutter, but the triangles in the corners could be cut with the triangles in the Economy die that came with the cutter. That helped save time.
So now for the giveaway.
