Stitching Cut File 12 of 36: Quilt

Friday, March 10, 2023

The 12th of the 36 Cut Files for Stitching is a Quilt!
Design Team Member Kelly Daye created this delightful page! She says, "I began by cutting Paige’s Quilt for Stitching Cut File out of white cardstock then stitched in diagonal rows, using two complementary colors in each row. This way, looking at the finished piece, the colors appear very random, but I didn’t have to change the thread color until the end of each row. I chain stitched with all six strands of DMC floss throughout. After all that stitching, I didn’t want to cover up too much, but was so excited to work with Paige’s newest collection Blooming Wild! Isn’t it gorgeous? I chose to add Paige's Butterfly Border Cut File on top. The shape of this cut file lent itself to tucking my photos into the bend; I really liked that. By making two inset butterflies for each, I was able to add lots of color and pattern, always a favorite technique. Paper 2 backed the cut file, followed by three pretty sheets of paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. To complement the foiled accents and add more texture, I stitched each butterfly with silver metallic thread, leaving the thread ends long to mimic their antennae. The primary focus is a combination of three photos mounted on chipboard ephemera - two are Chipboard Frame Stickers and the center photo is mounted on one of the Chipboard Tiles! Around the photos, my title ‘Be Happy’, is a combination of the beautiful Thickers and a Chipboard Sticker, flowers from both the Floral Die Cuts and Cardstock Stickers, a rainbow and some sweet flowers from the Puffy Phrase Stickers. I’m positively mad for the little things in Blooming Wild like the Mini Flower Puffy Stickers (you’ll want more than one package!) and buttons from the Chipboard Stickers - I sprinkled them in three spots on my layout, that appealing invisible triangle works every time. So glad you came by, cheers!"

Here is another layout made with today's Quilt from the 36 Cut Files for Stitching by Guest Designer Allison Davis! She says, "I LOVE the look of color fade designs and thought it would be fun to work that concept into the Quilt for Stitching Cut File. I picked out 16 colors of embroidery floss going from green to teal to blue and divided the quilt design into 16 sections from top to bottom. Then I stitched one color per section working from the lightest colors to the darkest!"
