In Tutorials, Quilting, Sewing

When crafting a wreath you don’t immediately think fabric. More like, pine cones or sprigs of pine….even burlap & yarn, like I did a while back.

But I thought when the Jewel Patchwork dies  formed a circle it looked like a wreath, so I thought, how about a door hanging, a quilted wreath door hanging.

I got an early buy on these V & Co.  fabrics at Fall Quilt Market last year.  I love the Ombre Bloom bundle and Vanessa the designer in the Moda booth was an absolute treat!

The bundle is on pre-order from Moda, you can reserve your bundle from The Fat Quarter Shop!

Fat Quarters work perfect for die cutting because, there’s no sub-cutting needed you just fold the fat quarter over 4 times and the die cuts through all eight layers.

These cut in the same configuration as the Build-a-Block System. Base plate, Metal Shim, fabric, Patch Work Jewel Die, Plastic Shim and Top Plastic Plate.

Like Hexagons, you’ll need to know how to sew a “Y” Seam to sew the Jewels together.

It comes down to sewing a quarter inch seam allowance and leaving a 1/4 inch at either end of the seam, allowing room for the Next seam.
