Accuquilt's Block on Board! BOB!

Look what is new with Accuquilt!!
Block on Board!!
How cool is that?!
so here is my block that I chose to create,
I still have to finish piecing it, so sorry. I was only going to piece one but I decided after I started I wanted to make a table runner for my dining room table! So!! I had to stop and cut more pieces. Honestly, this quilt is on my bucket list! I thought I would have to paper piece it, but NO! Accuquilts pieces are perfect. And!! They give you the little triangle points to line everything up with! The directions are included on the packaging so keep those.

I have the pieces on my creative grid ruler that measures 20 1/2" x 20 1/2" so that I could carry it from the cutting table to my sewing table.

I think it is going to be gorgeous!!

This is the center

the corner squares, if you can find the corner...cuz it is round! LOL

 arcs, I used my 2 1/2" wide strips! How easy!

left overs!! don't throw these away...think reversible applique. These football arcs come from the unit I was cutting out below, and again, I used 2 1/2" strips. I just fan folded the strip

melon shapes, I cut 6 at one time!! 6!! And they are accurate!

Fabric selections
The pictures look a little grainy, sorry. I don't know what happened.
I absolutely love how easy this was to cut and piece. You wanna know what the hard part was? Ok, you asked! Picking out the fabrics!! Once I chose the fabrics I was off and running, I mean sewing!
Happy sewing everyone!! I hope you purchase Accuquilt's Double Wedding Ring!  Here is the link!
