More Fabric & the Big Shot

From some past posts you have seen some quilt blocks made with the Big Flower die. I found some time to try some other sewing projects while I had that mess out. These are fun little coasters made from quilted fabric. I appliqued the Big Flower shape onto the quilted fabric and then cut w shapes out with the Scallop Square die....then sewed those two layers together. I think these will make fun "roomie" gifts for my roommates at convention this next week!....and if you are one of those roomies viewing this post try and act surprised! :-)

I LOVE these! I am addicted to using fabric on the big shot, it is so much fun! TFS and have a great time at convention, I can't go this year :(

Hey Jennifer,
You do have to adhere it to the cutting mat for the cricut. It will only cut one layer at a time. Also the blade needs to be pretty new and I have always ironed on Heat n Bond Lite before cutting it so that it stays flat and will stick to the mat better. I do love my cricut and I couldn't be without it but it doesn't cut fabric like the big shot! :) Now we just need Stampin' Up to do some exclusive cartridges! LOL! Thanks for asking me these questions, you weren't the only one so maybe I need to do a video.
Take care,

Thanks for answering my questions Wendy. I always point out to my customers that the Big Shot is so much better because it cuts several layers of fabric so easily. If you do a video I'll have to watch it!
Thanks again.
