A New Quilt
Both of these quilts require strips that are 1.5" wide. I cut some fabric for the rail fence quilt quite awhile ago so I already have several stacks of strips ready but there is certainly not enough variety. I just pulled another stack of fabric from my stash and I will start cutting more strips from it over the next couple days. With these scrappy quilts the more variety the merrier. :)
Now that I have the Go Studio it really doesn't take much time or effort to do this bulk cutting. I think it will take more time to press the folds out of the fabric than it will take to cut the strips. :)
Several months ago I made a couple test blocks for the rail fence quilt so I think I will start with it. The pattern calls for a combination of light, med and dark fabrics but looking at my stack of strips I see that I have more of the light and the dark. It just might be an excuse for some stash enhancement but I will see what I can get out of my stash first.
