Okay, Quick post today- Just want to keep everyone on track… I’m going to be out of town for a bit in October and didn’t want to leave you guys “high and dry” while I’m gone, so the cutting post will be divided into 2 parts.
Let’s start chopping up some fabric!
First of all- if your still not sure what you are doing, grab a piece of graph paper and start sketching out your plan…
-where each fabric is going
-what size you need for each piece
-how many pieces you need to cut
-colors, size etc…
This is a sketch of a quilt I just finished- I went as far as to color in the blocks, it ended up helping quite a bit – you think you’ll remember that stuff, but if you put down your project for a week or so, trust me you’ll forget.
The best way to drive up the cost of a quilt and waste fabric is to start cutting before you’ve got a good plan in mind.
Once you are sure what you are doing- start cutting…
Here are a few great tutorials if you are a beginner at cutting fabric with a rotary tool.
