I've been busy

Hi! Remember me? I know you thought I fell off the face of the blogger world but rest assured I am very much alive and well.

I've been working on a project that came from the brain of my friend Gene. He came up with a pattern using the Accuquilt GO! chisel and 3 inch finished triangle to make a variation on the friendship star.

Now keep in mind I have the chisel die, not the 3 inch triangle die... How'd I manage to cut my triangles?? Easy....My friend Judy Danz and I were part of SewCalGal's Accuquilt GO! Fabric swap. And Judy was kind enough to cut them for me... BUT... I ran out of triangles... I've managed to get 6 blocks done and am hoping for another 6 to 10 blocks to make a quilt. So, being the resourceful guy I am, I went to the creator of the pattern and Gene has agreed to cut more triangles for me... Maybe Santa will be nice and put tthe triangle die in my stocking this year.

  3. Your block looks TERRIFIC, Greg! I can always cut that size/shape for you as I have that die, too.

  4. I am waiting for the fabric to arrive, then I will cut and ship it back.
    Hey Greg, you could always do an instructional video and earn a die!
