Del Mar Quilt Show and the Big Shot!!

I was so excited to find out that my "upline" was demonstrating how to use the Big Shot in quilting at the Del Mar Fair. I came away with some fantastic ideas. Boy, this machine can do anything. It never ceases to amaze me. I see future quilts, bags, banners....oh the things I can do! It should be a fun sewing week at my house. If you would like to see this baby in action, you know what to do. Just let me know. :)

Here is Jill demonstrating the Big Shot. She had a few samples of her work up behind her. A couple of quilts, made up from a pattern that she created, as well as a quilted tabletop that I didn't get a picture of hung on the walls behind her.

Okay Ladies...see the celebrate banner behind her. Yeah, it says welcome on the other side. Hello! All my welcome banners now will have a dual use. Welcome and celebrate. Now the other side of my designer paper can get used too!! Yipee! Now, if you are making this banner from fabric, you would just basically make two banners and attach them together. It is nice because it actually adds a little more stabilization to it.

Here is a square that was made from the 3D star Big Shot die.

Another square made from the star only the star is inverted. It was also made with the oval scallop for the leaves.

Full inverted star flower with scallop circle die for the center.

I hope that this inspires you just as it inspired me!
