Yesterday was the first day I met my goal of cutting 40 fabrics in one day for the kits. I'm up to 175 pieces now and have about 14 more pieces chosen. The last 11 are the critical choices to fill in the gaps. I am doing this test piece 14 pc. x 14 pc. which uses 196 of the 200 pieces in the kit. As I have mentioned before I consider this kit a starter pack to add your own fabric stash pieces to.
My wastebasket by my studio cutter is full. I will go through the scraps and cut off any larger usuable pieces before I pitch the rest. On second thought maybe I should save those skinny pieces and do some weaving for fabric postcards. Maybe I need my head examined because there is still plenty of yardage to play with on the shelves.
I don't always get the pile of fabric centered over the die and that leaves a wider edge occasionally. I think I can use those pieces in my mini quilts like the ones I made last month.
