I am so happy to be part of the Sizzix blog hop. It was really fun playing with the Sizzix flower dies.
These are all the flowers and leaves that I cut. It may not look like much, but it was! I cut mostly cottons, plus some corduroy, silks, linen, etc. So easy and fun! All fabrics had Misty Fuse on the back. The dies I used were Flower #6, Flowers Leaves & Stem #5, and Flower, but there are other similar dies available. Then I made a simple quilted background with my favorite gray fabrics.
Then I arranged the flowers the way I liked them. My granddaughter Samantha watched me do this, and I let her play with button embellishments, just for fun.
She had so much fun that I invited her to take some of my leftover flowers and arrange them on a smaller background, that I made just for her.
After she arranged her flowers, she picked out some buttons that I could add after I quilted the flowers. She had the best time!
Meanwhile, I fused down the flowers on my quilt.
I also quilted and embroidered the flowers and added buttons on Samantha's quilt. Here it is, all finished.
Here I'm auditioning buttons on my quilt.
And here is my final quilt! I really enjoyed making both these projects.
