Contribution to Blocks to Die For!


Have you heard of “Blocks to Die For!”?  It’s a cleverly titled magazine published quarterly by Ebony Love of Love Bug Studios and my quilting partner on the Sizzix Design Team. It’s a magazine for fabric die cutting enthusiasts. It is not system specific ie. Accuquilt or Sizzix and actually includes rotary cutting directions in addition to diecutting directions too.

I was a contributor to this issue, Volume 3, Issue 1. My article can be found in the “Tips & Tutes” section and is called “Die Cuts Used for Freezer Paper Stenciling.” Specifically, I am talking about how great the Sizzix Thinlits are for stenciling. A little sample of my stenciling can be seen in the picture above.

If you are interested in the magazine, you can subscribe here.  It looks like I will continue to share “Tips & Tutes” in upcoming issues.
