UPDATE ON QUILT

My youngest daughter turns 21 on 1st August and I am making for a photo memory quilt as part of her gifts.  I have been working on it for the past couple of months in between other projects, I spent quite a few hours on it last weekend and this is my progress so far.  I ran out of the red and cream in between blocks. I need to make more of these red and cream in between blocks, first I needed to cut the 2-1/2 inch strips which is time consuming.


So this is where my new Accuquilt Go came in real handy, one of the dies I purchased when buying the GO was the 2-1/2 inch strip cutter, it cuts 3 strips across and you can cut up to 6 layers at a time. So I cut out my remainder red and cream strips in a matter of minutes. I didn't have the Go when I cut the strips for the first lot of the blocks, WOW let me tell you it was so quick and the stips so perfect, VERY happy......



Cheers
Kaylee
