Cutting Day

Saturday was our Orlando Modern Quilt Guild Sew Day which is a great time to get together with friends and sew, chat and eat!

Savanna Bop for a baby chevron quilt
There were eight of us in the large library room we are fortunate to use once a month.  Instead of sewing this time, quite frankly because I was too tired to bring my machine, I cut fabric for three new projects.

Sewing fun
There are lots of fun, new Christmas fabrics out there, but I resisted and cut into this 12 Days of Christmas charm pack from my stash.

12 days of Christmas for small quilt
This Jennifer Paganelli Dance With Me jelly roll was fun to finally cut in to.

JP strips and squares
These squares are going to be used for the Great Granny Square blocks.  I think I'll make an extra one for our guild's Block of the Month.

Cutting plays just as important a role in quilting as sewing does, right?


  1. You have such great taste with fabric selection!!! Your projects are going to look wonderful. Don't feel alone in your cutting...I think that's all I'll be doing this week ;-)

  2. I love having a cutting day! Especially with such beautiful fabrics. It will be nice to have these projects all ready to whip up when you have the time and energy.

  3. Cutting is a quite boring task made so much more fun by the company of others!

  4. I like having a cutting day now and then. Some days, I'm just i the mood to cut. Now, when you go to sew, you can go to town on it!

  5. I am continuing to drool over your JP!
