  2. Cutting Machines

    Has anyone used the Sizzix big Shot or Big Kick for cutting fabric. Both machines are supposed to take templates from other machines and do the job with fabric. Would I be better off with the AquQuilt Machine which is more expensive or will the Sizzix's do the job. I would appreciate comments from people who have had experiences with the machines. Thank you.

    You will need two different colors for the binding strips
    You cut the outer edge 1 3/8 you cut the flange peice 1 5/8 (inches)

    Then sew them just like you would normal binding in one long strip ( short side short side right

    So you need to cut two 2 1/4" squares of your background colour, and one 2 1/4 x 4" rectangle of your goose colour.

  9. Do You FMQ Feathers? HELP!

If you are fairly decent at quilting feathers (FMQ, freehand, not with a longarm pattern) would you PLEASE post pics of your feather quilting here? I need some inspiration! And apparently, lots more practice.
