Hi everyone, I finally got my really big project done. It's a quilt top made with my Cricut E2. I used Heat and Bond Lite for the backing on the fabric. I ironed it on a piece of fabric using the manufacturers instructions. I taped the fabric down on my mat using black electricians tape, set my blade depth to 4, my pressure on my Gypsy to 4 and my speed to 3. It cut pretty well. I did have to go around the ribbon and some of the more intricut cuts with my scissors, but it wasn't too bad. The large images cut like butter. I then ironed them on in a pleasing pattern. There was no urn cut in any of the carts I had, so I made my own using my Gypsy and various carts. Each block is 12x12 and the center block is 24x24. I have not sewn around the images yet, when I quilt the top, I am just going to quilt the images down as I go. They Heat and bond Lite will not stay on the quilt thru repeated washings without being sewed down.
I can't remember which carts I used for this, because when I updated my Gypsy with the last update a week ago, it completely made my Gypsy unusable and I had to restore and reboot my Gypsy which removed all my files and my carts from my Gypsy. I had to reload all my carts. If you have specific question about which cuts I used, email me and I will try and remember and let you know.
Fabric taped to mat.
Images like the one above cut out very clean.
In the white space above which is a scalloped image, I am planning on embroidering the date and my last name and town.
I think the teddy bear is from the Christmas Cart.
The bird cage is one image I had to go around with my scissors and I also hide contour on some of the images on it.
I hope you like. I am kind of glad it's done so I can move on to something else.
