A little of this, a little of that

I haven’t had a lot of time to sew in the last few days … but I’ve done a bit!

Design Wall


The March Island Batik project is sandwiched!  The theme for this month is “Vintage Reimagined.”  It is a fun theme to work with!   I used these fabrics on the right!!!  Oh – what a joy it is to use this beautiful fabric!!!  I’ll show you more when it’s quilted.

  • Border #1 is on.
  • Border #2 (purple triangles) is in progress.
  • Border # 3 is ready to sew on
  • Border #4 is being pieced together.



The first sewing clue is coming out today!  It’s an easy one: 4 patches.IMG_3147.JPG

I used my AccuQuilt cutter to make quick work of the 4 patches! See the little slide show below with how it works!

And, I’ve heard a lot of “rumbling” about how the AccuQuilt wastes a lot of fabric!  It’s not true!  I had very little waste from cutting the 4 patches.

Saw this on Facebook …

And the comment was “Don’t suffer from fabric regret, buy as much as you can!!!

And I laughed!

This doesn’t apply when you’re trying to use up your stash!!!

    • Hi Kathleen,
      Thank you!
      So far, I am enjoying using the AccuQuilt! And being careful, I find I don’t waste any more fabric than if I cut it with rulers!
      Happy Quilting! 🙂
