paintbox wears out 2 blades !!

I am participating in the paintbox quilt-along being moderated by Elizabeth over at Oh Fransson & today I spent the day cutting all my strips .

Took me sooo long to match up my prints & solids & made a huge mess of my fabric shelves in the process.
On a positive note I did manage to find 40 prints without buying a single one !!

I'm not sure if the last blades I bought are poor quality ( purchased online from I can't remember where ) but they seemed to blunt very quickly & I needed to change blades on both my cutters.
Don't you just love to see all those little strips lined up !!

Work continues on Patsy's snowball quilt ....blocks all sewn & laid out ready to pin into labelled rows.

Happy Australia Day to all my fellow Australians this week

I've got Kona cotton, I'm using it as background for my DJ (snow). Can pop a piece in the post to you if you want a sample.

Sorry, have misplaced your email addy. (Saving it was way too sensible.)
