Pucker Up Mini Quilt...using cut files with Fabric February 14, 2016 10:19 1 Comment

Hello everyone! This is Audrey Yeager and I want to share this cute little wall hanging that you can create to help decorate for Valentine's Day!   I used the "Kiss Me" cut file from the store.
To cut fabric on an electronic die cutting machine, you must first stabilize it with a fusible webbing like Heat N Bond, by Therm O Web,  on the wrong side of the fabric. 


Peel the paper from the back of the fusible webbing and place on your sticky cutting mat, fabric side UP (Heat N Bond side DOWN).   Cut your design with a fabric blade at a slow speed and a higher depth.




Once the design is cut, carefully peel the negative pieces from the mat, and then your shapes for the project.




Cut squares of solid colored fabric (mine are 8.5") and fold in half both ways to find the center.  Center your cut design and iron with a dry iron at med-high heat.  Be sure to flip the design over and iron from the back, too.




Once all squares are ironed, sew them together to make your mini quilt!    For my quilting, you will notice that I quilted around my shapes to make them stand our more against the background.

Hope you have a Valentine's Day filled with kisses (and maybe some chocolate and flowers, too!)
