Clams from circles

Remember these Accuquilt circles?

cutting circles

Well, I cut them up even more.  I emailed Accuquilt and asked them to make a clamshell die.  They said they’d consider it.  I didn’t feel like waiting, so I cut the circles into clamshells myself.  Once I got a rhythm going, it went pretty fast.


It’s amazing how much work you can get done while watching tv.  I’ve gotten to the point where if I’m not doing something while I watch, I’ll fall asleep.

I painted the edges of the clamshells with starch….

and pressed them over the edge of my heat-resistant template.  Now I have a happy little pile of clams with pressed edges.


Up next: assembly!
