Cut it Up Thursday

According to the Stashbusters group (a Yahoo! Group of over 4000 quilters who want to use their stash!) today is Cut it Up Thursday. Today is a day when they encourage group members to find some fabric they have been putting off cutting into or to cut out a project of some sort. Usually I haven’t participated in this because it takes me so long to start something or finish something, but today is different. I am going to participate in a Mystery Quilt Class on Saturday from 4pm to Midnight and I have to have all the fabric cut before the class! The fabric requirements were 20 fat quarters plus 2-1/3 yd of fabric for a border. I chose fabric from the Flutterby collection by Tula Pink because I found it on sale at Plain Jane’s last weekend! It must have been fate that brought me there. This fabric is funky and wild and sort of busy. I was a little worried that so many busy fabrics would be too distracting on a Turning Twenty pattern (which is what was revealed about the pattern when I went last saturday to pick up the supply list.) The friendly lady at Plain Jane’s assured me that she has made a Turning Twenty quilt with those fabrics and that they are not too busy. I sure hope so.  To make a long store short, that is what I plan to do this evening, cut the pieces out for that class. It doesn’t seem like it will be too difficult, just a little tedious. Perhaps the new rotary blades I ordered from Hancock of Paducah will arrive today. Or maybe that’s wishful thinking. Well, happy cutting.

    Hi Anna, be careful, excesive cutting can end up in tennis elbow, so goes the myth. Never heard of “turning twenty pattern” before, is it the name of a company?
