Machine Pieced Clamshells

I’ve been busily working with a charm pack of Briar Rose by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics and a newly introduced Sizzix die, the 4″ clamshell.

I got it into my head that I was going to machine piece the clamshells rather than applique and while it was slow going and careful work, I am pleased with the results! I am turning this panel into a finished project and will be sharing it next month along with the full tutorial for sewing the clamshells together with step by step photos.

Don’t you just love those little bees??
