Remember these great quilt blocks that I used in the tulip quilt? You’ve seen those feather shapes all over the place because I’ve used them in all kinds of quilts, but the blocks above also use 2 other die cut shapes that are really fun to work with, the Tulip die and the Stylized Stem die:
Each of these Appli-K-Kutz dies is now available at retail and wholesale levels and each of them can be used to make all kinds of blocks, from basic blocks to very complex blocks. The Tulip die has shapes that can be combined to create 5 different tulips and the stylized stem die can be used to create 2 types of stems. Here are just a few examples of ways I have used them:
There is no end to the fun you can have playing around with these shapes! These 2 dies are compatible with all makes of Sizzix machines and can also be used on the AccuQuilt Studio machine if a shim is placed underneath to raise the die (I use 4 Priority mail envelopes stacked on top of one another as my shim.) You can find these dies here.
And….drumroll please…the winner of the Beam ‘n Read Give Away is Jeanne Crowell. Congratulations, Jeanne!
