Whoops…. If I was planning to at least post every 30 days…. I have failed. Although if I had planned to post once a month…. I am still on track!!!
It often just seems like nothing really changes here…. And pictures… well not always as interesting as one might think they are.
Things have been GOOD here.
I was a winner, not once but twice in recent weeks.
First in March I received an Altos Quilt Cut II!!! What an exciting win and totally unexpected. I left a comment on a FB Page…. And the next thing I know I was notified that I won. It has taken a while to find some time to use it! But lets just say my strips have NEVER been straighter or more accurate than the ones I have cut with this tool. So far all I have spent time doing is the strips and a couple of simple sub cuts. It came with a whole book of patterns, in different sizes and the cutting instructions, but quite frankly, I have been very busy with just the need for strips.
Its difficult to see, but I have some white on white fabric laid up to cut. I did discover that the smaller Olfa seems to work best!
Win #2 was a 2 yard piece of hand dyed fabric and some Misty Fuse from Vicki Welsh of Colorways. It was a celebration of her new combined store and blog launch, http://www.colorwaysbyvicki.com/. I have a few pieces of her hand dyes but like almost all of the hand dyed fabrics I have, I have not been able to cut into them!!! I recently started reading her blog regularly, because she has an Innova Longarm, and teaches a beginners class for the machine…. Any way I love hand dyes, and left a comment, and well, someday I will have to cut the fabric!!! But not just yet.
So I have indeed been a very lucky quilter!!!
