I cut out just the first fabrics for the new shop sample quilt. I know the designers do their best to avoid mistakes, but sometimes they slip through. So I made the first ones to make sure the block instructions were ok and they were. I always get a little nervous cutting out a shop sample. If it's a quilt for me, it's no big deal if I miscut, I'll just go get more fabric. If I mess up the shop sample fabric and have to go get more, how embarrassing...all the ladies there will know I messed up! So far so good on this one though!
(I love cropping; it makes my block look so square! Ha, ha, only in the quilting world is it good to look square!)
