Cutting....cutting

Today has been a preparation day for a sewing day Tania and I am going to on Saturday, I have chosen to make the big star quilt so need 180 squares and 40 triangles...a challenge to me with that kind of cutting!!! I can also show the Winter Wonderland Quilt I have been working on, it is a panel, I have added sequins and beads, some pearl beads on the snow flakes, and gold foil paper rubbed onto the gold pieces to highlight. I have hand quilted around the Santa and animals and around the border. I am still thinking of putting some words on the bottom....still a WIP!!



cutting, cutting.....I am working with pink and purple shades of Batik fabric with white in the corners...

and the left over bits have been cut into 2 inch squares ready to be made into hexies...how organised  is that!!!

and even better No.1 son is cooking dinner!! Yippee!!!!
Happy sewing!

That's a lovely panel Sue, something different to the traditional red and white. Dinner looks delicious and even better when you don't have to cook. Enjoy your sewing day.
