Quilted Flowers & More

Today's one of those days that I feel like a chicken with it's head........

you know (hate to say those words...the visual is just not good).  

So, look at this picture and then I'll explain.

Quilt Flowers

When I was at Founders Circle, my most favorite thing was I made friends with several ladies. (Angie I miss you!!!)  Words can't explain how I feel.  I'm so blessed that you all have chosen me to be your demo and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me earn Founders Circle!!  I really hope I earn it every year but if not I'll remember this one fondly!!

Now I'll explain the picture....The Big Shot works with fabric and you can use our Stampin' Up! dies to make all sorts of awesome things.  The flower you see next to the machine uses the Flower Folds die and the center flower is the Circle #2 die.

At Founders Circle my 5th level upline (Jill) showed us how to make those darling quilted flowers. You can add them to your bags, presents or even squares for your quilts.  

I've never quilted and I've never used a sewing machine.  But, you know me....I don't see obstacles I see possibilities.  

So, I dug Brooke's sewing machine out of her closet.   The machine is a Janome and it doesn't have a walking foot....but again I don't give up when I set my mind on something.  

I'm happy to say it worked and tomorrow I'll post a picture of all the flowers I made last night.  I will admit a bigger and better machine would be easier but for now this is free :)

See ya!

Pin It!

Angie, from what I understand, Janome is THE sewing machine for quilters, although I'll stick with my very old Bernina.
