Sorting and pressing

I spent the evening sorting pieces to send to Jackie for her to cut with her Accuquilt. There is no way I would rotary cut enough of those shapes for a decent size quilt. She will do it in very little time with her little cutting machine.

I am going through my pile of small pieces first but then I am going to cut 9.5" strips off some of my favorite batiks. I should be able to get them all together and pressed well to send out by the end of the week.
I'm looking forward to the 40 degree temperatures we are going to have in a few days. At least at this point in the winter, the snow doesn't keep piling up.

Hi Wanda, I am looking forward to receiving your gorgeous fabrics. I know you will just love the accuracy of the cuts.

I had to Google the Accuquilt cutter. It looks like a wonderful machine. If I did more quilting I would certainly buy one... I think.

As always a splendid array of fabrics.

And now inquiring minds want to know -- into what size/shapes are you getting those glorious batiks cut? What a gorgeous array of colours.

Yea, me too, what are you making? Your fabrics all look so gorgeous! Some would go with my had so much trouble Saturday limiting myself to what I got! Batiks are hard to resist.

Hi Wanda,
I am also wondering which pattern you are going to have cut. Is it the curved one that is shown at the link you gave? I see there is a notch on the curve; that sure would make it slick to match and sew.

And of course, you can't go wrong with those gorgeous batiks, no matter what the pattern.
