My fabrics for clue #2 are all cut and ready for sewing. I used my Accuquilt 2 inch and
3-1/2 inch strip dies and had all 600 units cut in less than an hour. See the little bits of fabric trimmings leftover? It's not much at all and definitely worth having perfect squares and rectangles to work with. And, the best part, my hands won't be killing me tomorrow and the next day from cutting too much with a rotary cutter. I love my Accuquilt strip dies!
I used the 2 inch die to cut all the green, yellow, and neutral fabrics into 2 inch strips. The yellow and neutral fabrics then got subcut with the die into 2 inch blocks.
And the green 2 inch strips got fed through the Accuquilt on the 3-1/2 inch die to make the 2 x 3-1/2 inch blocks.
Here's the little bits from the ends of the fatquarters that hung off the end of the die. I re-fed them through the Accuquilt.
And these little yellows weren't quit big enough to feed through the die after the first
go-round so I simply used my rotary cutter and trimmed the ones that were bigger than 2 inches, which only about 8 were usable. The others went into the garbage pile.
I had my second set of Euflexxa injections in my knees Wednesday and am still feeling achier than usual so I'm off to ice up my knees and wait for the weather to warm up a little bit before heading off to quilt in the garage. I need to make progress on that special customer quilt! Oh, and a trip to the grocery store is in order, too, as I'm making one of our favorite dinners tonight … tacos. Yum!
