WiP - cut, cut, cut

Sometimes it's all about cutting. You know those prep works than needs to be done. No more looking at the fabric stack just cut into it! Those are meant to become the Broken Herringbone stripes.


I'm not done yet. I need the sashing as well. Plus this is like 3/4 of the lot I need for the quilt top. If I calculated it right. Well, we'll see about that.



Last glimpse of those pretty scraps before they jump into bin.


Here's finished hexagon trivet I shared as a WiP last Wednesday. I absolutely love it. I love pretty much every finished project, lol.

  3. Pretty trivet - the solids work really well in that design :) I bet your back was aching after all that cutting, lol --- if you end up cutting extra, you can always use it to bling up the backing! I got part of the cutting done last night for my next D9P quilt - I have to cut the blocks for the front of 2 quilts from that line, then I'll divvy up the leftover fabrics to use for the backing and binding :D

  5. Yep. I know. I have a huge pile o fabric waiting for the rotary as we speak. Trouble is, I covered my cutting table with a painting project. I really should be less project manic! :)
