Design Team: Debi Tullier Week 11 Cycle 8

Quilted Christmas Gift!


Debi is making a quilt for Christmas?! And how in the world is she going to finish in time? Well, when you can cut 10 layer of fabric in one Fiskarsfuse die & the eBosser, things go a bit quicker!

This is another two part project. It takes a little while to get the items sewn together, but having my Ebosser and myFiskar’s Fuse Dies Hexagon shape has made my cutting out job so much easier. I will be posting my pattern next week on my blog!


I was able to cut over ten layers of my cotton out with the fuse die! This is going to be so cool. Can’t wait to show you the finished product. I am creating a handmade Christmas for my friends and family!

Here I am sewing a scant quarter inch seam placing the two hexagons together. I love sewing and can get lost for hours. It is coming out beautiful! Love the time my eBosser is saving me. If I had to cut this by hand it would take forever and also tire me out.



A quick press is very important. I use a small craft iron. I always press the seams flat first then press seams to the darker fabric. Remember a good press makes your work look so good.


Here I am adding the “white” hexagon into the mix. I am so excited and can’t wait to show you the finished product next week. I will also be sharing tips on sewing and quilting this project.
If you have never quilted before and want to give it a spin, I will offer suggestions to get you started into a wonderful hobby!
Here is my last photo which shows you the added “white” fabric added to both sides.
