Lesson Learned

Bless me Father for I have sinned, it has been ENTIRELY too long since I changed my rotary cutter blade! Seriously I know I haven't been quilting for all that long, but I think knowing to change that blade frequently is pretty basic.

I had started to cut my fat quarters for the Mod Sampler quilt (Quilt along by Oh Frannson) and was having a heck of a time, and it was like a lightbulb went off! After changing the blade cutting was smoothe like buttah! haha Seriously, I was beginning to think I was developing Carpel tunnel from pressing so hard while cutting. Like I said, lesson learned, I vow to change my cutter blade more frequently.

Anyways, I wasn't so sure about the fabric combinations I had selected so far for this sampler quilt, but as I'm cutting, I'm loving what I'm seeing. I haven't gotten very far, but heres a peek:

Like I said, not much to report on today, and we're headed out of town for the weekend tommorow to visit friends, so there will be no quilting this weekend, but I'm taking Monday off as a "sanity day" so it may be a quilting bonanza! Anyways, the friend I'm visiting is pregnant and due in a few months, so I'm hoping to get a sneak peek of the nursery so I can begin to plan her baby quilt!
