A Quilters Dream Come True

Our final moments at Leadership were SO exciting! Shelli presented an award to fellow Demonstrator, Jill Olsen for her efforts in blazing the trail with the Big Shot and our die-cuts into the textile industry.

She showed off all the incredible quilts and fabric things she has made and the amazing work she has done blending our products into the world of fabric. As a side note - did you know you can cut 8 layers of fabric with the Big Shot?? Not being a seamstress, I had no idea!

My dear friend, Lisa Freeman, had already taken the leap into textile with her Big Shot, and made me the cutest tote bag! I carried my card swaps in it, and people stopped me all through the conference to take pictures of the bag. She used our Scallop Square Die Cut and the Flower Folds Die cut. Isn't this the cutest thing ever????

Here are a few more pictures; a close up of the flower and the back of the bag:

The Big Shot is the only die cut machine that can cut through fabric! What a dream come true for Quilters who normally have to cut the squares out by hand. The Big Shot is a HUGE time saver!

Here are some of the quilts that were on display at Leadership. These were all made using the Big Shot and Stampin' Up! dies! Aren't they beautiful?

If you are a quilter, or know someone who is, make sure to forward this post to them! I would be happy to do a quilting workshop for anyone who is interested in learning how the Big Shot can make quilting easier and faster. :)

Have a great day!
