Night Song

I had such an enjoyable time working on this small wall hanging quilt. It is the GO! Night Song Quilt...and is a free pattern on the AccuQuilt website. Normally I am not a huge batik fabric fan - I can usually take it or leave it...but a couple weeks ago a local quilt shop had a nice sale on batiks and I knew I wanted to use them for this quilt - and I am so glad I did...I love how it turned out! All of the fabric was cut on my AccuQuilt GO! fabric cutter - it used the following GO! dies: Birds (a new favorite of mine!), Drunkard's Path 7", Rose of Sharon, Stems & Leaves, Strip Cutter 1 1/2", Strip Cutter 2", and Strip Cutter 2 1/2". This small quilt (21" x 21") was perfect for practicing curved piecing (which I really enjoyed) and machine appliqué. I put a split sleeve on the back and my husband helped me make a great sawtooth hanger, so it is ready to put on the wall...now I just have to find the perfect place to put it!

A couple notes:
