It is so nice to have the spring weather upon us, I love when the temperatures are about 65°, just perfect I think.
I am just having a blast in my sewing room, recently I purchased an accuquilt Electric cutter for my fabrics. I am just amazed at how great it works, in the past I’ve always had to cut out my pieces with electric scissors ( because of the MS I can’t Rotary cut, not complaining just explaining), The machine cuts fabrics fast and so efficient. It is sitting on my ironing board and I am working on a project where I need over 4000 squares. I just put on those dies and through the machine they run and on the other end is my squares.
To me it is amazing, in order for me to do a nine patch I would have to cut out all the pieces with the electric scissors and then foundation piece it together, now I can just cut out those squares and piece A simple nine patch together without foundations. It’s like a whole new thing to me, not that I won’t be foundation piecing the future because I absolutely love it but it certainly will make things easier.. I’m not associated with the company at all but I just had to tell you how much I like the product.
I just finished my Lucy Boston blocks, originally I wanted to do 12 but I changed my mind to do 17 and I will Appliqué them on backgrounds and then set them in some kind of a medallion setting. Such a fun process, so much fun picking out the fabrics.
The squares I am cutting out are going to be for a antique quilt I am reproducing. I’m slowly progressing on my Sophie’s garden and I making stars and circles for another quilt. There is always something to work on, I just love that. Something always inspires me, I love to spend the day in my sewing room no matter what I’m working on, it just makes me smile.
Wishing you a wonderful day today, enjoy the spring weather.
