    Create Traditional Blocks With AccuQuilt Dies

    I'm starting a project for my blog where I take popular quilting blocks and create them using AccuQuilt dies. There are just so many to choose from. I also want to include all the standard, traditional ones. Now the question is what are the most popular blocks? Any suggestions. Thanks in advance!

    I would think the dies of HST, or stips are used in alot of traditional quilts

    I'll be watching this post with great interest. Just got an Accuquilt and don't know what to cut. I've been thinking maybe pieces to make some blocks I always thought were too hard for me, like Storm at Sea.

    You might check out Ebony Love's new book on the subject for some suggestions. I don't have it nor seen it but have been reading her posts and know the work she does. Are you also on the Accuquilt web site and read their posts.

    Look at Nancy Bills' web site.

    I took an accuquilt class with her. She has a brilliant mind. By the end of the day, I was overwhelmed with ideas!

    I like the storm at sea pattern. You can use the 55027 GO! Triangles in Square 3" Die for that one.
