I finally decided to get myself to that quilting class on Thursday to learn how to cut things out properly.......I probably could have done it all at home but I wouldn't got to spend the day laughing with friends ( Jodi, Kath, Melissa, Therese, Heath and Lil ) and more than likely I would have taken the long road when it came to cutting the thing out, the balance of colour would have been off, and I wouldn't have discovered that my pizza cutter thingy had two blades on it.
I bought it probably 8 months back and thought it was going to be such a time saver.....not! All it did was make mince meat of everything I touched with it, I thought it was me, my technique was all wrong so I always went back to the trusty scissors. When I started to cut some of my squares on Thursday it did it again......very frustrating, I thought the blade was blunt or something. Kath and Therese pulled it apart and discovered there were two blades not the usual one..........so now I have a spare blade what a bonus!!!
Now that I can cut without making mince meat of everything I spent last night cutting out some more pieces of my quilt, so far I've cut out around 450 pieces......another 100 or so to go. Such a long process but I'm going to be one happy camper when it's all done.........I'd love my house to be full of lovely handmade quilts, they make a house a home!
Have a lovely weekend!
