Sizzix: Wave Die

I was playing around a couple years ago with curves, and wanted to make a shape that I could very quickly and easily cut and sew together to make matching curves... This shape is what grew from that playful experiment... I have a full twin size quilt made of this, using up many many fabrics to make a nice scrappy version of this, I figured it would make a great TWEEN/TEEN bed design. ( which  will actually be out in Simple Quilts Nov 4th)  Above, I mad sit for a baby boy quilt, mixing in sweet watery prints, and a few pops of fun color for a modern nursery.

By flip flopping this shape, it gives me my SIZZIX WAVE DIE , But I have found that I can really use it in  many different ways. I've made a flag, (below), 

..and also a Christmas tree skirt, by sewing together the shapes all in the same direction to make a scalloped border...

But I can't seem to find the photo right now,  So.... Will have to come back for that!

Be sure to stop by on the 23rd for ways I've used the dies together and also to manipulate how I use the dies for more designs!

Off to CT in the morning.. Hoping to see many of you there!

  1. Very cool and that stripe bias binding is fabulous. Looks like a fun project for sure.

  2. Love those Stars & Stripes forever!

  3. Love the wave quilt. Makes me want to go to the beach.

  4. STOP STOP STOP...these are so COOL!!! But I am not 'allowed' to buy anything until Christmas! SANTA is gonna have to bring me all these luscious goodies!!!

  5. Love the wave quilt! I don't have any of those cutting machines, so I can't use the dies, but are you saying that there's going to be a pattern (and template) for the wave quilt in Simple Quilts, Nov. 4th? Some of us still do it the old fashioned way 😉

  6. What size machine would you have to buy if you wanted to get this Wave Die? Can you use the die on another brand machine? I love the beach quilt, and the flag is just amazing!
