I decided that I really "needed" an electronic cutting tool and after reviewing some reviews (I believe also done by Marjorie), I decided on the Silhouette Cameo.
So what can I do with my Silhouette?
- Cut applique shapes from fused fabric
- Cut freezer paper templates for applique shapes
- Cut applique shapes from fabric with seam allowances
I realized that I didn't need to start from scratch, but could take applique designs done in either Electric Quilt or Art and Stitch and transfer them to Silhouette.
If I wanted to do applique on my longarm, I could go from Electric Quilt to Art and Stitch and then to Silhouette. Or just from Art and Stitch to Silhouette.
Let me first share a video on transferring applique shapes from Electric Quilt to Silhouette Cameo.
