New Quilty tools + 365 Challenge

I have been putting my new quilting ruler and rotary cutter to good
use cutting out all the 388 pieces for my 365 challenge quilt top. I started it on my birthday at the end of August and have been journalling on my computer since I didn't have all the fabric yet to cut out all the pieces. On Saturday I visited another quilt shop and got the last of the fabric I needed for the quilt top. It took me a day and a half to cut out all the pieces, being new at this rotary cutter business, but it is so much faster and a million times more accurate
than using scissors.

Now I just need to get a pen and get writing...

For me, the cutting is my least favorite step- and you really had a lot of cutting to do, didn't you?? Oh well, now you can get to sewing (the fun part)!

I'm a relative new-comer to the rotary cutter and quilting ruler but it has CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

Hope you enjoy all the goodies you ordered from us, and have a great time in Oz.
