How to Make a Little Dot in 3 Easy Steps

I shall now reveal the secret to making a little dot to decorate your fused quilt top. Step 1: begin with a long rectangular shaped piece of fused fabric and really sharp scissors.
Step 2: use the fabric rectangle as a handle and rotate the fabric as you cut with the scissors. Practice by making big dots then work your way down to smaller dots. These flower dots for my quilt in process are about 1/4" across.
To prevent craziness, place the dots on your quilt top with a pair of tweezers. And don't forget to use the cut-away or left over dot fabric as a design element. Happy dot cutting!
