Still Cutting

I cut again most of the day, and took some time to sew!  And dreamed of other projects. 

I need 480 black 2 inch squares for step 4 of the Allietare quilt before I can even begin to sew.  Even after cutting for a couple of hours I still need about 100 more.  Ugh!  But I did take a break from cutting and did sew a little.  Twisted Blossom which I chose fot the RSC, this is the brown one. 

The cutting for this block takes a bit, but once the parts are cut, it goes together pretty quickly, especially with a curve master presser foot.  Once I was done with this I went back to cutting my black squares, and then squared up some bonus HST which I have accumulated.    I have bags with  1 1/2 inch, 2 inch, and 2 1/2 inch HST, and a whole big plastic shoe box full of HST the that need to be squared up.

I will say that the Bloc_Loc rulers do help me square up quite a bit faster.  What I am going to do with them I do not have a clue.  I see a triangle quilt in my future. 

So doing the happy dance because I did sew today.  Tomorrow back to the cutting crew.

Yay! Your block looks great. I need to sew up a couple of CQ blocks. The lighting is much better downstairs, so I set up the iron, cutting mat and sewing machine. Then the phone rang and my sewing will have to wait until another day... I am so glad you were able to enjoy some sewing time!

That's a lot of squares to cut, was it hard on the eyes cutting all black fabrics? I love your brown Twisted Blossom block.
