My Cricut Craft Room- Sewing



So today on MCCR, I am doing something outside of the box. The theme for today is Sewing and I thought what could I do. I love to sew a bunch and well I decided to make a quilt. I wanted to showcase how you can make templates using the Cricut instead of buying those expensive ones from the quilt store. 

I went in and used a basic hexagon shape from the My Quiet Book Cart.  It is pretty big like nearly ten inches across. I used some cardboard I had on hand to cut it out using the poster board setting. 

So here is my pile of fat quarters I used from a stash of fabric I have had for ever. I was able to cut at least two hexagons using the template. 

Once it was all together, it had the sticking out edges so I just trimmed them. 

Here is the quilt top. It is lap size and I need to quilt and bind it. 

Thanks for stopping by!
