Go!Ahead and Show Some Love

Good morning folks....it is my turn today to share my little projects with all of you. I hope you enjoy what I have for you. I got my Go Baby for Christmas this past year; so have limited dies so far....but not for long!!!
Here we go.......

                         Polka Dot Pillow
I used the 2,3,and 5" Circle Die for this little project.
Fabric Needed: Background...16" square
                         Back ...1-16"x9" rectangle
                                      1-16"x12" rectangle
                         Circles...4-3" squares
                                       4-4" squares
This makes 2&3" circles with your die.
I used low loft poly batting for this( worked great)

Add fusing to wrong side of squares and cut with cutter
Fuse in place on background fabric where ever you like and use as many as you like.

Machine applique in place(I used a small zigzag stitch. Then layer your sandwich and quilt as desired.

Now the Back: Take both pieces you cut for the back; turn long edge down 1/2" press; turn down again 1-11/2" and press then stitch.

Place both on top of front piece; large one first. Right side to right side.

Pin and stitch all sides. I used a zigzag stitch to avoid bulk Now turn right side out and press. Voila!!
Now I have another for you, since this one was so very basic...hope you can stay with me because there is a giveaway at the end...I will spare a lot of details since they are similar.

                                            Snow Family Wallhanging

I used the Holiday Accessories die for this:The directions are exactly the same as above....fuse the back of your fabric..cut with cutter..fuse to background and machine applique. Sandwich your layers...I used cotton batting here. quilt as desired. Cut 21/2" strips for binding and sew on by machine to the front and sew by hand to the back.

Fabric needed: is all listed on the Holiday Die...The background is 16"x20"...if you don't have the die and would like the list, please let me know...I don't want to take up more of your time here...it's a lot to read...thank you.

I used tiny black sequence for the eyes and mouths...floss would work great........
Now for the giveaway....I have 4 fat quarters and 2 patterns for one lucky person.
Rules: Just leave me a comment; you don't abslutely have to be a follower; but I would love if you did...
I will draw on the 19th after the hop is over..
