AccuQuilt has announced at Fall Quilt Market that they are releasing two new dies featuring Ricky Tims' designs. The new designs, Arabesque #1 and Arabesque #2, fit into 8.5"-10" blocks and feature motifs that can be utilized in a multitude of ways. The designs, seen in the image above, are the same motifs that will be featured in Ricky's new JWD quilt pattern to release next Spring.

Regarding this particular quilt Ricky said, "Talk about a time saver. I cut out all the applique pieces in less than 10 minutes!" Ricky is known for utilizing diagonal designs that can be arranged in numerous ways to create different effects. The Arabesque dies will put this principle into practice. See The Daily Blog on September 3rd, 2008 to see these same designs used in a different way.

We hope you have enjoyed the trip through the Pacific International Quilt Festival.  Now that you are inspired, show us what you are working on.  Go to the new Feature "Show & Tell" (under Alex's smile) and see what your community members are creating in  "What are You Working On?".  Then add your current project. 

We will also soon have our "Challenge" ready to start.  It is going to be an easy one to finish, because life is so busy right now.  Keep your eyes open this week for the announcement.
