I did buy Jackie a thank-you-for-having-me pressie, but then got scared that it would get confiscated as a sharp, so she'll have to wait until Festival of Quilts so she can put it in hold luggage. I bought one for me too, and as she's seen the pic of hers I can now show you mine - a tulip rotary cutter, isn't she pretty!
Partly to hang it up, and partly in case there is another one at a class, I put a red ribbon on the end.
It cuts beautifully, like a hot knife through butter.
My thought process . . . .
- I probably don't replace my blades often enough. . .
- I wonder when I last DID change a blade . . .
- It would really help to know when the blade was last changed . . .
- I should record that info somewhere . . .
Have you made a connection yet? It took a a while for me to think of it, but I finally had the brainwave, and I've written the date of the new blade on the ribbon
The rotary cutters were last week's impulse buy, I actually went to the shop to get some binding fabric (I was going to be within 10 minutes of it anyway, and would have half an hour to kill)
So I took a bag of quilt tops . . .
This one had already been backed and quilted and now has pretty purple stars for binding
These are still flimsies but as it's school hols I should have the time to assemble, quilt and bind, so the flowery hexies have pink binding, and the tumblers have grey (both spraytime)
These hexies have muted yellow binding all cut and waiting
and these two string flimsies have a bright yellow and a blue/black binding
How organised am I?
