It's been quite a while since I haven't had a quilt or project
that I needed to make.
The December baby quilt is done and the next one isn't needed until March.
I'm not making any quilts for Christmas gifts this year.
We've pared our list way down,
so there aren't as many gifts to get or make.
I do have a couple of quilts tops that need to be quilted,
but I'm not in the mood.

I'm taking this opportunity to prep some quilts to be made when
the mood strikes.
Reproduction fabrics are not my favorite,
but somehow I ended up with a cabinet full of them.

Last week I took the time to iron all of the fabrics
and roll them up,
ready to be cut.

I wasn't kidding when I said I had a cabinet full of reproduction fabrics!

At the end of last week I began cutting.
I have a Go! Cutter and, while there is a bit of waste
using this, the time saved is so worth it.


I decided what shapes I wanted to use,
cut the large pieces of fabric into smaller pieces
that would fit onto each die
and began to cut....

Flying Geese Parts

More Flying Geese Parts
for a different quilt


Pieces for Log Cabin blocks....
over 90 of them!

I have a few more pieces of fabric to cut and then that job will be done.

Now I have an empty cabinet!

You know I had to play a bit in between cutting!

One down,
who knows how many to go!

There will be a lot of these made, too!

Now to clean up my mess!

Happy Quilting!

Great idea to have pieces ready for "whenever."

I am SO impressed! :) Reproduction fabrics...especially Civil War and older (although 30's are very nice too) are my favorites...I hope all this cutting and prepping makes them "grow" on you. Blessings....

Wow no wonder you get so much done

That is quite a day's productivity! Like the colors of your log cabin.

It really is nice to have them cut for when you are in the mood for some down and dirty sewing time! I am anxious to see what your quilts look like, I have some reproduction fabrics and I can't seem to put my finger on a pattern I want to make with them.

OhMyGoodness! What a great idea to get everything cut and ready to sew up when you are ready to sew them up! I love your log cabin! It's going to be gorgeous!! (Is it done yet?)
