Cutting Fabric


While my sewing machine has been in for its spa treatment, I've been doing lots of cutting.


Here is the first quilt I want to start. This is Cheddar Bowties -a Bonnie Hunter freebie - leaders and enders from years ago. But I love the version above - made by Kelli from Jo's Country Junction. Kelli is Jo's daughter. You can read more about this quilt HERE.




I've been cutting some of my new cheddar fabric - ready to go!



And I've been cutting my scraps for this one, too. I haven't made one single block yet, but maybe tomorrow?



And here is another quilt I want to begin. This is Star Upon Stars - the front cover quilt for Edyta Sitar's book, Patches of Stars. I've been collecting civil war reproductions for it.



Oh my. I had to cut 1" wide strips! Wow! These will finish at only 1/2"! That is very tiny indeed! Especially for me.


I got my sewing machine back yesterday, so today I started sewing the strips together in units and cutting them again. Only one more of these units to go and I'll be ready to piece a diamond.

And so it goes - ready for September! I only have a bit more big stitch hand quilting on my Christmas  row quilt. So it will be in the FINISHED pile very soon.

Stay safe.
