Tattered Lace

I've really become taken with the Tattered Lace dies.  I know they're not everyone's thing but I've always had an eye for detail and these certainly have it.


I'm also impressed with how easily they release from the die.  


As you can see I've started off pretty simple


They don't need much decoration with all the detail. Although I did get a bit distressed with this one.


And this one's just blinging bonkers.  Admittedly this is not just Tattered Lace but Tim Holz and a freebie stencil that I had lying around.


I think I did go a bit over the top,


And here's a glimpse of my partially completed next quilting project from my class.... another table runner.   More to follow...

Your cards are beautiful, Carol. The dies cuts are so intricate. I don't have any TL dies - but that's another story :)

Looking forward to seeing your finished table runner, it's looking gorgeous.
