    Can I use my cricut expression machine for doing something like this? It’s really great. If I can’t, then I’ll just need to purchase one of your machines. Thanks

      I know this response is late in coming. I’ve only recently started posting in the comment sections for patterns/items.

      I recently made a baby quilt that I used my Cricut machine for. I mostly used my Accuquilt machine to cut the majority of the pieces. However, I needed some cute woodland animals to make as silhouettes to add some additional detail to the baby quilt. I could see how one could cut the Orange Peel and Squares, using a Cricut machine. The strips, I would recommend, however, because the Accuquilt strip dies allow for long continuous strips to be cut, using an Accuquilt machine.

      For something smaller like this table runner, though, you could get by cutting the pieces out using the Cricut. You will be limited to the mat size, however, that especially can be an issue for cutting strips. Unless you want to connect/stitch all your strips together. Also, with the Cricut machines, it can only cut one layer of fabric (that is backed, to make it stiff enough to more easily cut out).

      I use my Cricut for mostly paper crafting and some quilting, largely applique detail. I use my Accuquilt fabric cutter for all my quilts, however. I am an avid quilter and my Cricut would not be able to cut enough pieces in quick enough of a time for me. My husband gifted me the Accuquilt Studio for Christmas a couple years ago (and it was on sale). With my Accuquilt (Studio) I can cut all the pieces I need in a really short amount of time. My machine is able to use the Studio dies as well as the GO! dies (with an adapter). The Studio can cut up to 10 layers (I use mostly cotton fabrics/batiks) and with the GO! dies, I can cut up to 6 layers of fabric. The applique pieces, are typically back by a fusible webbing and that will reduce the number of layers I can cut to about 4-6 layers, depending on the die. It’s still quicker, for me, than using my Cricut.

      If you are just going to make a few items, like this table runner…you can use the Cricut. If you want to make more quilt items, then I highly recommend getting an Accuquilt fabric cutter (when they are on sale, which is pretty often). Really, I recommend having an Accuquilt machine anyway. You don’t need something as hefty as the Studio machine, necessarily. The GO! machines are wonderful, more portable, and easier to store when not needed for use. I have the Studio machine because I have a dedicated space for it and I’m working on quilts almost daily.

    I totally agree that the extra Orange Peel pieces add a different “dimension” to appearance of this table runner. How do you think it might look if you were to go a step further and add one more piece such as the Go! Round Flower #55007 in the center of the original Go! Orange Peel Flower #55455? I guess that it is all in the way people see it. I realize that there are limits as to how far to take the piece we are working. If you change it too much that would not be good BUT we have to understand and accept the fact that our “LIMITS” are determined by a persons imagination. What would this look like in a full size bed quilt. I have only gone as far as opening my new Go! Big “Electric Cutter because I am to trying to finish setting up my sewing room first. I have so many projects/ideas running thru my head right now. I can’t wait to “PLUG” it in and push the power button to turn on the Go! Big Electric Fabric Cutter. I am looking forward accumulating all the extra that I will have. I can use this time wisely be sewing or embroidering pieces for the quilts. I am honestly at how a “single and simply” piece of fabric can change the outcome of your quilted project by “adding that new dimension” to your project.

    I apologized for “getting carried away” and for being so winded. I am so excited to have a Husband who believes in me and my ability to physically put my thoughts and ideas into a project that others will appreciate.

      I love your enthusiasm! You are right; limits are only determined by one’s imagination. I love my Accuquilt Studio and how I can use a mix of the Studio dies and GO! dies! I recently acquired the Hunter Star and Butterfly GO! dies (had to get an adapter to use them with my machine)…I love them! My husband is the one who gifted me the Studio machine for Christmas a couple years ago and he’s been the one building my library of dies. It’s absolutely wonderful having a husband that supports my love of quilting and also believes in my ability to make things that other people enjoy. 🙂

      I would think that this Orange Peel design would look fabulous on a full bed quilt for my daughter!

    Looks great. I like the variations in color — really adds to the visual interest of the piece.
