In December I wrote about my efforts/hope/goal to sew up all of the strings that I have been collecting so that I can use them in quilts. I also gave links to string quilts that Bonnie Hunter had shown on her blog. I was really enamored with her quilts and I decided I would make at least one of them.
I had purchased the Studio die cutter and dies from my sister when she was moving and she realized she wouldn't have space for it. I thought it would be a really good idea to keep it in the family. 😊
I am glad that I am putting this tool to good use because I just don't use it as often as I should. Because I was a dedicated follower of Bonnie Hunter's scrap user system I already have a ton of precut fabric pieces ready and waiting to go into quilts. As I use those precut pieces up I will absolutely use the die cutter much more often. It is so convenient to use and makes quick and easy work of cutting fabric.
