I cut these 3 1/2" tumblers with my GO!Baby Accuquilt cutter. I thought it would be fun to piece them into two long blocks, each 6 1/2 X 18 1/2. I must say, this shape has been my most successful die in terms of clean cutting on the GO! Baby. I think the dies with sharp angles 90 degrees or less have a tendency to snag threads between the blade and the foam inside the angles. These tumblers cut beautifully using 5 layers of fabric. I laughed when I turned off my sewing room light and discovered that the jack 'o lantern mouths and eyes glow in the dark - I had completely forgotten that!
These two 6 1/2" blocks were made with the Lazy Angle ruler. I took a course on it many years ago and it was a total brain bender. I had to completely re-educate myself on how to use it. It's still a brain bender.
This simple, 12 1/2" 9-patch uses my all time favourite pumpkin print. I think I bought it nine years ago in San Fransisco at Mendel's in Haight Ashbury. They had all kinds of great Alexander Henry prints there....the spider web print must be from there, too. I know because they ripped the fabric off the bolt at that shop and there is about 1/2" of useless frayed edge on that 1/2 yard. The webs are an embossed gold ink that makes them extra fun.
These quick blocks are a great way to get into the season and a lot easier than making costumes!
