I had been thinking and thinking about getting an Accuquilt GO! cutter... last week I decided I might as well go ahead and get it, especially after Linda (Sew-n-crazy quilter) in my bee told me about Quilting Warehouse. I'd never shopped at Quilting Warehouse before and I'm glad she told me about it; they had a great price on the GO! cutter that included a really nice the starter set.
After unpacking I wanted to cut something! I used a piece of fabric I got from our last bee meeting to practice cutting 2" strips. Those of you with GO! cutters, do you press your fabric first? I think I've seen pictures of cut strips that looked a bit wrinkled and I wondered if it made a difference... Wanda and Gene, do you always press yours??
But the strips came out beautifully - it's so nice to cut fabric and know you won't have that annoying v-shape at the fold area! I only had a little waste, plus an extra piece for my string bin. Now I'll get a chance to go through my stash and the large scrap bins to see what I can cut into usable pieces.
Moving right along...
We'll see if I'm still grinning when I go to buy more ink, ouch!
That's all for today, have a great Friday and be careful on the snow if you're having any. Sew forth and sew on til later!
