Since I was cutting out a quilt with my nested dies, I thought I would show you all how they work. When you purchase a set, you get one set of nested dies with blades to cut multiple sizes. And one set of blanks.
You remove the piece with the blade that is the size you want to cut and swap it out with one of the same size in the set of blanks. Like this:
I have a set of triangle dies that work the same way. I used them to cut pieces for Daughter #1’s Christmas quilt. Here was my first arrangement. It seemed pretty busy.
I liked this one better and added the greens along the sides as a border.
It’s still very busy, but I’m going with it!
