I went to my "old faithful" Sizzix and whipped these up in less than an hour.
Way before I bought a Cricut and then a Silhouette Cameo, I had a Big Shot by Sizzix. It's still my go to "old friend" when it comes to projects like this. I also use it a lot when making rag quilts.
This is the die I used for this and also the rag quilts.
The die's are normally around $25.00 - $30.00 but JoAnn's has them on clearance a lot and I pick them up then when I can. I thought you could see the price on there, but obviously, you can't. Those were marked down to $3.00!
Anyway...I cut 5" squares and lay them in layers on the die and run them through the machine.
Perfect cut every time!
I'm pretty sure you know the drill, but you layer your batting between two squares (wrong sides together).
You need to sew an X on each square. To make it go faster, I do one continuous strip going one way, cut apart and do the same thing to finish the X.
Then sew your squares together in strips and then join the strips.
I forgot to sew around the whole piece before I took these pictures, but you need to do that, also. When I use the scallop squares, I don't clip the seams, just the corners (where the arrow is).
This hasn't been washed yet, but they keep looking better and better with each wash.
Okay, Terri, walk away from the kitchen and quit finding things to do in there!
I join These fabulous parties each week.
