Island Batik Ambassador AccuQuilt Challenge Baby Quilt

April's Island Batik Ambassador Challenge project was called AccuQuilt Ready. Set. GO! Challenge Baby Quilt.

We were to make a baby quilt using our new AccuQuilt Go products which we received at the beginning of the year from AccuQuilt one of the latest sponsors of the Island Batik Ambassadors this year.

For my project, I decided to use the Island Batik "ditty" collection. This collection has a variety of pastels throughout the strip pack and came with Pink and Cheddar yardage. I used some neutral fabric.

The block I choose to make out of my Quilt in the Day! GO! QUBE book is called Frayed Four-Patch. I liked the book which is full of different blocks and projects, and the block patterns are easy to read and follow.

The Frayed Four-Patch uses two different Dies out of my 8" block pack. I used Die #2 (squares), and Die #8 (rectangles).

The AccuQuilt makes it easy to cut the squares and rectangles, by cutting up to 6 layers deep.

Combining the Cheddar and Pink squares with the Neutral rectangles really set the tone for the blocks.  I made 16 Frayed Four-Patch blocks.

I then add some more color by using my "ditty" strips as a sashing in between the Frayed Four-Patch blocks.  I decided to add them to the outside of the blocks as well.

I quilted my baby quilt using Hobb Heirloom Natural Cotton Batting.  The binding was from extra strips from the "ditty" Island strip package.  

This was a fun, fast and easy project to make using my AccuQuilt Cutting System.  

Stay tuned, I'm already working on my May challenge quilt "Modern."

"Designs to Inspire"


  1. This is so simple and cute! I love that you used the strips for the sashing rather than for the blocks themselves!

  2. Turned out wonderfully....just perfect
