Child's Play {Baby Quilts with Island Batik and AccuQuilt}

It's time for another Island Batik Ambassador project!

This month we have been tasked with making baby quilts that use the "block on board" dies from AccuQuilt we received in our summer goody boxies.

The die I received was an Ohio Star die and I decided to use the Quiet Shades fabric for my quilt.

I used mainly fabrics from the layer cake for my block parts and some neutral sprinkles fabric for my background. The cutting for this was lightning fast using the die; this made it so easy to transport all of my block parts to retreat a few weeks ago!

I did a sneak preview of my blocks a in my retreat wrap up:

Here are my 16 blocks for this quilt!

Next up is sashing my blocks together!

As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, and Hobbs Batting to use and share with you!

Sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!


  1. So pretty! I love the way they look in Quiet Shades. I can't wait to see them all sewn together. Have a wonderful day!

  2. I love star blocks. Your blocks look great.

  3. Those soft colors work really well in the star blocks. How you keep up with all the monthly projects has to be a finely honed skill.

  4. Fabulous Ohio Star blocks, Alison! I just bought the regular size manual GO! cutter (had the GO! Baby before) so that I can use some of the larger dies. Die cutter plus dies for large scale blocks should equal REALLY quick tops coming together for those quick gifts (I hear there exists such a thing, though I've never made one). Anyway, that's the hope. You're doing a great job for Island Batik; everything you make with their fabric is just lovely!

  5. What fun!!! Can't wait to see it finished

  6. These blocks will make a sweet quilt!!!

  7. This will be a sweet baby quilt; looking forward to seeing what else you do with it!

  8. Pretty! I've always had a special fondness for Ohio Star.
