Back to the Cutting Mat

This weekend my plans are to do some serious cutting.  I am starting 2 new projects and then of course, there's the Quilt-Along . . . so ya, I will just keep cutting, just keep cutting :)

And here's a little sneak peek of what I will be cutting.  I am starting a new Fat Quarter Shop Short-Cut Quilt, ya know, some of my favorite fast finishes!!!  This one is going to use Sweet Marion Jolly Bars and I am pairing it with Gris Grunge!!!!   And I am so excited to see how it comes together, I love Grunge!!! 

And then next on the Cutting Mat will be these wonderful Autumn Love prints from Bee Lori.   She is starting a new Quilt-Along as well, and though I don't have time to do the entire Quilt-Along, I am super excited that I was asked to share a day and a project from the Quilt-Along.  And what I have planned is totally making me giddy ;)

And finally, I have my Seeing Stars fabrics to cut.  I pressed all of my Fat Quarters last night and now they are ready to be cut up ;)   I need to get to these fast to get the tutorial all ready for next weeks first block release!!!  I am so excited to see how many of you are quilting along, it's going to be so fun!!!

And who knows, if I can get all this cutting done, I just might get started on those blocks before the weekend is out.   I can't wait!!!   I know it's a bit crazy, but I actually really enjoy cutting out quilts ;)  Something about seeing all of the new projects getting a start, it just makes me smile.

Here is to a Happy Quilting Weekend at the Cutting Mat!!!  

I hope you have some Happy Quilting Weekend plans for yourself as well ;)
Pin It!


  1. Can you do all that cutting without making your wrists worse? You must be in great shape.

  2. This does look like three fun projects
    I love all of the piles of fabric!

  3. I think that cutting the block parts is my favourite part of the quilting process as well - piecing is #2!

  4. I love piecing the quilt better than the cutting. I love the Christmas fabric. Thanks for sharing.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
