Diecut Appliqué Snowflake Pillow

24 Dec

Merry Christmas!  It’s warm and pouring rain here in Georgia on Christmas Eve. Unusual weather for this time of year. I am still in the Christmas Spirt as I finish up projects, start new ones and dream up even more ideas!   

I just cut and fused this beauty this morning on one of my handled blue wools. If I can’t get out in this weather I might as well stitch. This will be a pillow for January’s Monthly Mini (door prize/fundraiser ) at my quilt guild. 

The Snowflake die is the widest in the Sizzix lineup and requires the Sizzix Pro, or Accuquilt/Accucut*, or Fiskars Fuse* die cutting machine. *Adapters or shims are necessary. 

Please follow my on social media at Pretty Penny Precuts. 

I encourage you to cut something out and create! 

SEW Blessed

4 Dec

My quilting and sewing has never ceased to bless me in so many ways. I thrive on the fellowship quilting in my charity group Comfort Quilters, my guild Quilters Guild of the Southern Crescent, my small group SEW Primitive, SEW Social, and finally Pretty Penny Precuts Open House provides me. These quilters of my heart encourage, poke, prod and inspire ceaselessly. If you are not a member of some kind of creative fellowship I encourage you to find one or better yet start a new one!  

Here are the two FREE Make n Take options for December’s Open House in the Pretty Penny Precuts Studio. Look what you can do with Marcus Fabrics wool and Sizzix die cuts!  Nativity Silhouette and Christmas Truck. I will return with updates soon to share some finishing ideas for these stitcheries.
