I know it doesn’t seem like much to many of you, but I finished cutting out the quilt! I just love, love, love these fabrics! Here are all the pretty pieces. (My photo doesn’t do them justice!)
I didn’t discover until the last two fabrics that a new blade in the rotary cutter makes a HUGE difference in how fast the quilt cutting goes. My old blade didn’t cut all the way through, so I had to use scissors to cut spots on each cut. Once I changed the blade and it cut clean each time, I realized how much faster it is.
Lesson learned: Keep new rotary blades on hand and change them at the first sign of getting dull.
