Cutting, Cutting, Cutting….

This is my bin of Denyse Schmidt fabrics. I have a couple ideas for these and finally decided to have a cutting day. I think there are around 50 different prints here.

I start by layering 5 different prints and cutting a strip about 12” wide from each. This is a total of 10 layers. I’m using my AccuQuilt Studio Cutter here. I love cutting 10 layers at a time!

These are the AccuQuilt dies I’m using.

I started with 3 1/2” squares. This is way more than I need for the project I have in mind, but I’m sure I can come up with ideas for the leftovers.

Then I cut pieces for bow ties (I still need to cut the background pieces). I think I have enough for at least 100 here.

Whatever is left after that gets cut into 1 1/2 and 2 1/2” squares (no pictures). Finally, the strings go in this bin.

I’ve reduced the contents of my big bin, but I have plenty left for future projects!

Have a great day!

    I don’t store my fabrics by designer but by type: western theme, 1800’s reprints, 1930’s style, Batiks, landscape, florals, polkadots, etc. If my collection in one category is big, then it is separated into color groups. With the kind of quilts I make this works wonderfully.

  2. Oh, that looks like a lot of fun in the making! Can’t wait to see. The dies make it SO much easier.

    I get SO excited when I see you cutting big hunks of fabric. You’d think you were cutting them for ME! LOL!
