I got a chance to play with my new Silhouette Cameo this weekend, cutting some simple flowers.
These are flowers I drew myself in the Silhouette software, which was very easy to do. There was a bit of a learning curve, but it all made sense once I saw a couple of videos. I must say, thank goodness for those how-to videos, as my attention span for absorbing any written instructions is extremely short these days. Guess it's a result of all these new electronic gadgets!
Anyway, the fabric was prepared for fusing with Wonder-Under, as these flowers are going to be completely fused to the Modern Grace quilt top.
In the software, the cuts were arranged to make the best use of the fabric, with all the centers in a row for placement of a different fabric on the mat so that I wouldn't have to run it through twice.
Within a minute, it was all cut! This is what's left on the mat after removing the waste fabric.
Aren't they cute? Now onto arranging them on the quilt for fusing!
Sorry, you're just going to have to wait till I get it quilted before I show it all off!
I'm pretty pleased with how this turned out, and I see great possibilities for cutting in the future. There's just so much versatility! If you have one of these machines, or have been thinking about getting one, this is a great use for it.
Linking up with Freemotion by the River tomorrow and SewFreshQuilts on Wednesday!
