Quilted Flowers with the Big Shot

Since I'm new to this quilting thing I'm like a kid in a candy store!!

  The fabric & the sound of the sewing's all so exciting! 
It's just so amazing that I can make these all by myself :)  

Once you get started I bet you can't make just one.

  So far all I've done is make the flowers...the next step is to add the ribbon.  Once I do that they're finished.

  You can add these flowers to your bag, presents & even make hair barrettes.

The fabric in the picture below is Figgy Pudding and I bought the charm packet at Quilters Haven in Olathe, Kansas.  Love the terminology....layer cakes and charm packets.

How did you cut the batting? Did you use the big shot as well? i am just wondering if the batting stuck in the die. These are absolutely beautiful by the way - you have inspired me to start sewing again.

Hi Angie
I have just purchased this die (was inspired by your gorgeous flowers and flower quilt).

I'd love some tips on how you sewed them - I have sewed before but my first attempt looks pretty cr@p! Did you use a normal sewing foot or a special one? Did you sew quickly or slowly? How did you get such lovely curves?
