I've made a start on cutting my brand new fabric for Eleanor's Quilt. It is just the most exciting thing - but scary too! I've checked and double checked the cutting list, and these are the strips ready for cross cutting.
But I'm stopping here.
However much fun it would be to carry on with the next bit, I know that it is MUCH MORE SENSIBLE to do this in stages, so that the ol' grey matter is in tip top order.
I'm much likely to make a good job of not just cutting, but piecing too when I'm fresh, and the 'oh, that'll do' shoddy bits are always when I'm impatient and tired at the end of a session.
Well, no more!
Half an hour cutting, and that's enough for the time being. Cross cutting will be later after I've gone to visit Grumpy George at the allotment. He'll point out courgettes (zucchini), runner beans, french beans and raspberries for picking, I'm sure.
Oh - and Oliver cat says that in the meantime, he'll make sure that no one steals the fabric. Well done, Oliver, thank you.
Summer, The Quilt - Julie of the The Crafty Quilter created this fun and smart quilt as a qal with tips and advice, and I joined in. I couldn't pass up this design; I love ...
