It felt like Christmas the other day when the UPS man delivered my package. I ordered some new accuquilt dies last week. My main reason for ordering new dies was because I am doing Bonnie hunters Celtic Solstice mystery quilt. I wanted the dies to use for each clue instead of using the traditional method. Well I ended up doing clue 1 with the tri rec rulers and I started to do clue 2 but decided to wait for my order.
These are the dies I ordered! I got the parrallegram, triangle in a square, hunters star, Alphabet letters, log cabin, 1 1/2 half square triangles and I think the last one is a 3 inch half square triangle
The log cabin looks like it will have to be made scrappy which I am ok with. I just love scrappy quilts!
This alphabet die will come in real handy when I am making personalized hooded bath towels. Cutting out the letters is time consuming and this will definitely save some time.
I used the parrallegram die along with the 1 1/2 inch half square triangle die to make some of the blocks in Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt. I found that I liked using the half square triangle along with the 3 1/2 x 2 inch rectangle.
The hunter star die is one I am most excited about. I made one using the rulers and the pieces were a little wonky. I look forward to making one with this die.
Here is my fabric that I cut for my Celtic Solstice quilt.
