More Cutting, cutting . . .

This is the progress on cutting for the raffle quilt:

How do you like my organisational skills? Or am I just 'anal' as my friend Jo would say? She says I am "that adjective" about my pins. I like my sewing pins to be all the same, the long and thin type (but not the quilting pins with yellow or white or flower heads) and I like them to be in their little round plastic container which has a little pin cushion on the lid, with NO OTHER OBJECTS in it, like stray needles or safety pins!! If they are bent they get biffed. The little plastic container is one I have had for a long time, at least 30 years. It used to have a foam rubber pin cushion of the lid but this has long disintegrated and I made a new little cloth and batting one and glued it to the lid. I'm gonna cry when it dies!

Did you stand on your cutting table to take that photo? And where is the background material...only 2 days to go before you need to pass it all out. Are you going to use those little white paper bags we use to get lollies in?. Frances

It may be picky (better word than the other) but all of those little piles of fabrics laid out like that are beautiful. It also gives you some sense of how the colors will "play" together. So, it has its purpose!
