My Day to Cut
I find that I work better if I designate a day to cut as many quilt projects as I can and get them ready to sew. Even when I was sewing clothes I never worked well when I cut and immediately started on the project. I'm better when I am fresh when I sit down at the machine.
So today I plan to cut this stack of luscious Batik fat quarters for another Wicked Easy lap quilt. They were purchased last year when our Bee went to Mineola, Texas on retreat.
I will also start cutting charm squares for Impera Magna's D9P quilt-along. For this project we will be using the simple Disappearing Nine Patch pattern and I'll be cutting some of my dated Thimbleberries stash. I might add that there are no rules for this quilt-along, no time lines, and work at your own pace. If your are interested in joining this quilt-along you can find the rules (no rules) here.
The only other quilt-along I have joined recently is Terry's Treasures Whimsy quilt. You can find Terry's blog here.
Enjoy all the pieces of your life,
