Have you met BOB?

I'm going to let you in on a little SECRET...

I am madly in love with BOB!  BOB is just so much FUN!  I have had the hots for BOB since I first laid eyes on this Ohio Star block design way back in May.




Who is BOB?  BOB stands for Block on Board.  BOB die designs enable you to cut the pieces for an entire block with just one die.  BOB is so Easy!  Every shape you need for the block is included on that one die!

BOB die designs will enable you cut all your fabric for an entire quilt quickly.  No more cutting strips and subcutting them into smaller pieces.  Bob is so Fast!  You can cut an entire block in just one crank of the handle!

And because you only need one die, BOB die designs are a fabulous deal!  BOB has Value!

How many choices are there?  There is plenty of BOB to go around!  A total of 21 different AccuQuilt GO! BOB die designs to choose from!


Want to get to know BOB a little better?  Be sure to join me later this month!

Come along on a tour with me!  You'll see BOB in action and all the wonderful projects made using the BOB die designs.  The BOB Blog Hop will run from August 18 - August 29th.


Keep On Quilting On!

Boxes-N-Bows Christmas Table Runners

On Wednesday, I mentioned my recent fabric additions, of the Christmas variety.  They are Holiday Cheer by Jan Shade Beach for Henry Glass Fabrics.


Looking for some guidance as to what to make with them, many of the comments left recommended a table runner.  So I sat down with my graph paper and drew up these fun Boxes-N-Bows blocks.


Each block finishes at 10" square.  And could also be used to make a wall hanging or square table topper.


The first runner is 14" x 72" and the second one is 14" x 50".


If you would like to make some Boxes-N-Bows blocks, here are the cutting requirements for each block.




Linking up to Finish it up Friday with Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF! hosted this week with Laura at Quokka Quilts.
