I have been doing a little quilting and just finished this quilt top that was pieced together and then I use the Big Shot Bigz clear Flower Die to cut out fabric and batting to create this flower image that I appliqued onto my pieced quilt front. I also used the circle die for the flower centers.
Using the Big Shot and the Stampin' Up! dies are a perfect way to create uniformed images that are quick to cut. I layered 3 layers of batting and 6 layers of fabric cut them all at one time. I used Stampin' Up!'s glue sticks to hold the layers together and onto my quilt while I appliqued the flowers to the quilt. This was a very easy way to keep the layers from shifting and the glue will wash out.
I now need to quilt this. I grew up handquilting but that is a slow process so I want to learn to machine quilt. That is my next hobby to start... Like I have all the time in the world to learn how to do this but you know if you want to do something you can't wait until you are not busy or else it never gets done.
