Accuquilt Card Tricks - Eugene



This lovely quilt looks complicated, but is really not! Using just 2 dies from your basic Accuquilt Qube (sample made with the 8-inch Qube), you can speed-cut the pieces in almost no time (90% faster! We’ll do that in the morning), and spend the afternoon assembly-line piecing the blocks. In the process we’ll also explore different pressing techniques for limiting bulk.
