Luminous Field Flowers : :

Today on my table is fun project idea I have for my Quilt Market booth using my GO! Baby fabric cutter, an assortment of Accuquilt's amazing flower dies, and a collection of my wool felt in colors inspired by my Wild & Free Luminous Field print!

Felt Flower Making

I love making felt flowers, and during these busy Quilt Market prep days where I'm behind my sewing machine for hours on end, it's so nice to disrupt the routine with a handcrafted project!

Felt flowers

I hope to create several wildflower felt crowns & floral arrangements to have in my booth. For a little bit of picture taking fun & because of the obvious, no watering needed!! Love that! Since felt flowers do last forever, in addition to some of the Wild & Free quilts and pillows I've created, these will make one more perfect keepsake for me to have to remember this first fabric collection experience!

  10. I have a go Baby and just hauled it out, dusted it off and made some appliques for a baby shower onesie station :) They really are fun and quick to use. Love it. And, i LOVE your felt flowers. Do you show how to make those anywhere on your site? I'd love to make some for presents for the shower and for christmas. Thanks for all that you share!

  17. Hi Maureen! I never thought to use my accuquilt for felt flowers despite having the die. Do you cut one layer thick? Does it get stuck in the blade area or dull the blade in your experience? Thanks! Btw, I am so ancy waiting for Wild& Free to come out. I haven't been this excited about a line of fabric since Dandelion Girl by Fig Tree or Marmalade by Bonnie & Camille. I'm going to get a ton so I can make clothes & home decor things w/it. My 12 yr old loves the arrow print & has already claimed a fitted & flared maxi skirt out of it. The line colors are *perfect* for Fall fashion she says. :-)

  18. Such a cute idea! I use my Sizzix for cutting out flowers (sorry, I know they're the enemy ;o) )
