Today is my day on the Queen of Gadgets Blog Hop, hosted by the amazing Carol @Just Let Me Quilt. The challenge this time is to show the gadgets we use making our projects. To me, the definition of a gadget is something that makes a task easier. The blog hop line-up is below.
When I was thinking of something to make for this blog hop that would use a lot of gadgets, I was also thinking I wanted to make a small quilt for our annual Sacramento Branch of the American Begonia Society Show and Sale.
I went online and searched for begonia images. I finally settled on 4 begonia coloring pages which I used to trace the pieces to applique.
I used my lightbox to trace my begonia applique pieces onto Heat and Bond Lite.
These are the four appliqued blocks. I didn't get pictures of the blocks before I quilted them.
I also went online and downloaded a begonia design to embroider. I used my embroidery machine and embroidered the center square.
The name of our show this year was "The Magic of Begonias". So I opened my Cricut Design Space on my laptop and found some letters that suited my project.
I used my Cricut to cut out the lettering in iron-on Vinyl, and used the Cricut Press to iron them on my project.
Next I used my Accuquilt to cut out some Sawtooth Star blocks.
I used my old trusty machine to sew these blocks together, along with quilting the project.
At the next Begonia Meeting tonight, I plan to give this quilt to this lady Joan, who founded our branch of the Begonia Society.
So that is my project. Be sure and check out the other bloggers below and see what gadgets they use. Thanks again to Carol for another great blog hop!
