Field Report From a Marathon Day of Sewing

Now that I have Monday’s off, I am dedicating the day to sewing.  Today I spent a little over six hours working on various projects.  I got a lot done!  I worked on all three Block of the Month projects and my 1930’s Hexagon quilt.  To help speed the projects up, I used a tip from a book- I had several needles pre-threaded so that I could just keep going instead of having to stop and re-thread every few minutes.

I also got to use my AccuQuilt Go Baby! for the first time.  It was my Chanukah gift to myself in December, but I haven’t had the opportunity to try it out.  Today I decided to cut some 2 1/2″ squares of white calico for my Hex quilt so it was time to break out the fabric cutter and the 5″ square die.  It was pretty awesome!  In about 5 minutes I had about 30 squares cut.  Not too shabby!

The only consequence of my marathon day of needlework is that my poor fingers are totally torn up!
