Before I go on… let me tell you that I love my Shape Cut Pro! It’s a bigger sister to the Shape Cut Plus and ONLY cuts at 2 1/5 inches… but cuts across a full width of fabric.
I sewed and I made blocks!
OK - it’s a fairly simple block but that’s the first I’ve worked up in my sewing room in… well… just about forever!
I’ve joined a block swap with the wonderful ladies up at Southampton Quilts – a simple 4 patch swap done over 6 months. Half a yard each of a light and dark – cut into 2 1/2 inch strips… sew, press, cut, sew, press and you are done!
It felt good!
And yes I had to clean off and dust the cutting table, ironing table and sewing machine…
Oh and look what I found whilst cruising around the countryside one day last Spring with my sister.
I think I got the whole set for $15.00… there are these 9 hex flowers.
I don’t remember how many of each of these two different style Dresden Plate blocks… one with a curved edge (these look like they have been removed from a quilt)…
and these with a pointed edge.
In the good news department… my husband installed a new electrical line to the 3rd floor sewing room… now I can have the A/C on and IRON at the same time. I might actually do more sewing soon!
