Today is my stop on the Shabby Fabrics Christmas Keepsakes Blog Tour!
Christmas Keepsakes is a 10 month Block of the Month quilt that is designed with 9 applique blocks and has just the perfect borders to make this quilt extra special! It finishes at 36″ x 36″ and is offered in traditional or laser-cut/pre-fused applique style kits with border, backing, binding and embellishments included. Shabby Fabrics has asked me and some other lovely ladies to each try one of these pre-fused and laser-cut applique blocks and tell you what we think…….
So hears the deal, I have never tried a pre-fused/laser-cut applique project, but let me tell you…..I am completely won over!!!
Here’s what came in my kit:
Yep! All my pieces….ready to roll.
All I had to do was peel off the paper backing, put everything in place and give it a press!!!
Stitch everything down however you like and……..
Seriously…..I spent more time tying that bow than on the entire block:) I think I might just have to make this entire quilt!
