Brightening Life with Creativity,
one day at a time...
I started this project quite a while ago and taught it to a group of ladies locally who wanted something more challenging. (For those of you just tuning in, you can read the rest of my posts about it here.) We trudged through it for several months and I have been forgetting to follow up and show you proof that I did get it together:
I'm not sure just exactly how I will quilt it, but I am happy to say that my nights are a little more
"peaceful" now that I have the top finished! :-)
As my husband would say: "Doneski!"...well almost! :-)
Remember that quilt I started quite a while back called Pieceful Nights by Lori Smith? Well, I just finished the last two blocks for it and despite having LOTS of pieces they went together pretty easily. This time around, I was able to cut all of those little pieces using my new Quilt Cut 2 fabric cutting system! for those of you unfamiliar with the product, here's a picture:
I have only had my unit for a couple of weeks now and I'm still learning some of the "ins and outs", but I can tell you that it is fabulous! I was able to cut all of the pieces for the last two blocks easier, quicker and be more precise. What a great combination!
Here are some pictures I took while cutting out some of the pieces:
And here are the finished blocks! I still need to trim the threads, clip the dog ears and press them, but I couldn't wait to show you!
Even though a lot of "traditional" quilters use this cutting system, I plan on using it for my fiber art as well. So stay tuned for more pictures. In the mean time, if you are looking for a way to make your cutting more accurate and in my opinion, safer, consider the Quilt Cut 2. Their website has lots of great information and videos. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
