Well how is it going so far?…I kinda got carried away in yesterday’s post and forget to tell you that the papers were on sale…but I bet you’ll figure that out….I love to teach and sometimes forget I need to sell too…lol…so when you add them to the cart it puts a discount off in the cart total.
DAY 10 – ALL PRE-CUT FABRICS…JELLY ROLLS, CANDIES, FAT 8THS, FQ TOWERS..THIS ALSO INCLUDES 2″, 2 1/2″,3 1/2″ AND 5″ CHARMS THAT WE PUT TOGETHER …..You know the ones…you see them at shows…60 fabrics/30 prints, so 2 of each all the same color family…or 100 scrappy charms or 50 light and 50 dark charms? Hmmm those would be useful…with yesterdays post of 2″,3″ & 4″ blocks that can be made from CHARMS…in reds, blues, browns, greens, cheddar/chrome/purple, and on and on…we never put OUR PG PRE-CUTS on sale…but…there’s alway a first time and the time is now…Pre-cut can make our lives much easier…therefore they are a NEEDFUL THING. They also are a good way to collect every fabric from your favorite designers.
I have a drawer of them at home..I pulled some out to take a pic…I should have left them in…now its messy..…Jill hand cuts these all by herself with our dandy Accu-cutter…she is amazing…these packages are perfectly stacked and wrapped…you will LOVE them. They make good gifts too!
I will be using lots of pre-cust from now on…and giving you free patterns to use them with…like this Jelly Roll pattern…CLICK HERE for a PDF… Its called Lightning Fast…shown here in Songbirds Gatherings..Lakeside Gatherings and Snowman Gatherings II, respectively.
and its fast and easy and makes a great gift quilt. You will need 2 of the same Jelly Rolls.
And…remember that quilt I finished on Thanksgiving Day?…I quick threw in on the bed in our guest room…This quilt is made from 135- 10″ squares or 4 Layer Cakes…From each LayerCake cut 2- 5″ squares and 8-2″ squares. One LC yields 2- 5″ unfinished snowball blocks… Stitch across the diagonal on all 4-2″ squares that were placed on the corners of a 5″ square. Trim and press triangles out to make a snowball block. I then made 9 patch snowball blocks…30 of them…set the quilt 5 by 6. Make these blocks as leader/enders when stitching another project…and Yes the quilt is hand quilted…took me a bit, but it gets done…I used fabrics from both Snowman Gathering lines, Lakeside Gatherings & Lakeside Gatherings Wovens…or any creams, tans, light and dark blues, grey…Also Snowman III is coming-out in May…we will try and get some kits together for this quilt… I know some of you asked about them.

Questions from yesterdays comments….
The handle on my starch can is a SPRAY CAN PAINT NOZZEL…works great and is nice/easy on our precious hands and when you starch like we do…you don’t want cramps from holding the starch can nozzle down with only one finger…gripping it with your whole hand is much ergonomically correct.
Does the starch need to be washed out of your quilt as some point? I can be washed out when the quilt is finished…It doesn’t have to be…Can starch used to be made from cornstarch…it is not any longer…so there is no need to wash it out as there was before…some of the thinking out there was that bugs are attracted to the cornstarch…and would eat your quilt if you left starch in it…So that’s gone away…no more corn in the starch…
But once you start starching your fabric before quilting you will never to back to not doing it…Your quilt lay flat, less stings on the back and everywhere…they will be so much more accurate…My machine quilters love to quilt our quilts as they are flat, straight, piecing is near perfect and they are a joy to quilt. So try starching your fabrics…completely wet..let them dry…iron them and start cutting. Do not just mist them…Use cheap starch like the can in the post…You’ll go broke if you use your Best Press.
I’m picking winners early today!!!

I have never used the triangle papers but would love to try them. I am new to quilting, have finished a quilt that I did in my beginners class. I am anxious to do more, and your triangle papers seem that they are a more accurate way. I know accuracy is important in quilting. I would love to try them
The winner of the sheet triangle papers is…326 comments…getting better, plus I’m picking 6 hours sooner today…

I have used them. Have not used your brand yet. But I will have to try them. What do you have on your spray can? I also starch all my fabric before I cut it. Kathy
