I have been designing quilts (on the down low) for the past month or two and needed a bit of a break so I made a cute quilt that I'm calling my Astrology Quilt due to the great focal fabric that has zodiac motifs on it. So I wanted to do up 12 blocks and use my new parallelogram die that goes with my Accuquilt Go Baby. I had never done 'Y' seams before but you never know until you try, so off I went. Here is a photo of the quilt.
My design wall isn't secured very well so the photo isn't as nice as it could be.
I had no idea how to built this block because most of the tutorials I found around the internet used half square triangles to build the parallelograms. I don't think I built my block in a traditional way but I really am happy with the accuracy of the stars when all the blocks came together. I used my Accuquilt Go Baby parallelogram die, but here are some cutting directions if you don't have the die/cutter.
So there you have the written tutorial of this particular design. If by chance you prefer video I have made my first quilting video and here it is.
I'm linking up to the Needle and Thread Network to share ideas and checkout the talented Canadian fiber artists out there.
