snow day and a giveaway

                It's been snowing all day and the sanders have just come by.
                    Oh well it's winter still here in Ontario, Canada.
So I have been in my sewing studio sewing my little heart out.
I'm making a queen size quilt for my eldest grandson.

This is the fabric I picked out and started cutting 2 1/2 " strips.
I find that my June Tailor Shape Cut Plus works best and cuts the time in half.
The rail fence pattern goes together with ease.
Sew 3 stips together than cut at 6 1/2 " intervals. I get a total of 6 cuts from each.
I need a total of 224    6 1/2" blocks. Well I have a long way to go.

Just a reminder that my giveaway is still on til Feb 20.
                                           Go here to enter.
                                                 Good Luck!


  1. I have a Shape Cut Plus, but I've been afraid to use it. I fear that the plastic strips will wobble a little as I'm cutting, resulting in less accurate cutting. I'm guess that my fears are ungrounded since you use yours and are pleased with the results. I guess I need to get mine out, dust it off and use it one of these days.

  2. I am waiting for my blocks to dry, had to wash out the blue pen, then I can get to piecing it all together. Love simple and scrappy blocks like that, great colors for a boy.


  3. Hi! this looks like the "jelly roll" quilting method? anyway it's such an easy way to do it. I had forgotten about the different dates of your giveaways, so I'll go back and add to right side bar!
