A little cutting time......

While waiting for the laundry to be finished I snuck in a little cutting time.  This die cuts 10 equilateral triangles at one time.





It was hard to see all of the cutting lines in that first photo so I spread them out.
I ordered a couple quarter yard packs of the quilting weight Liberty of London prints to go with some of the larger yardage pieces that I found on sale.  Now I see that Glorious Color has all of them on sale.  This is the group I am cutting with the above die and I'm adding solid black into the mix.  I will continue cutting them in spare moments over the next few days and hopefully try some layouts on a design wall by the end of the week.

You are certainly getting your money's worth out of that cutter... and I'm enjoying watching all the fun!

I Love your stack of fabrics you have in mind for the triangle shapes. It should make a very dramatic quilt when they are set off by black.

That cutter is looking very attractive to me. I'll have to think about whether or not I need one. Thanks for the link to glorious color - now I know where I can buy Kaffe fabrics on demand! And spend my whole savings on it... LOL

That is gonna be super fast cutting.

OMG - I need that die cutter if only for the equilateral triangles. No matter how careful I try to be when lining up my ruler, my triangles are NOT consistent.

I must break out my Go Baby! and see what I can come up with! ;-)

Loooking forward to what you do with all those equilateral triangles.

A cutter would be so worth it for equilateral triangles! I've got a stack of voiles with those in mind.

And another quilt is in the making. I am so jealous of your cutter. Wow, in a flash you have a bunch cut and all perfect size. Today with the rain it is a good day to be quilting.
