    Am just cutting my first quilt with it. 1 inch finished log cabin Twin size so I bought the 1 1/2 inch strip die. There was no more prep than usual since I prewash my fabrics. Laid out two FQ on the die, rolled it through and something like 24 strips are done ASAP. It is a Judy Martin pattern so I am cutting perpendicular to the salvage. 21 times of doing that and the first cut was done.

    There was virtually no waste.

    Now to the hard part of cutting the strips into the shorter sections and piecing the thing. My first log cabin.

    I bought the 1 1/2", 2", and 2 1/2" stip cutter dies. I LOVE how the strips are PERFECTLY straight. Easy peasy :)

    Thanks fidgety, just a little better. Yes, I promised this one out too....but for a good cause that you will all empathize with.

    Our county historical society is doing a quilted barns campaign (think Shipshewanna wannabe) to save some of our historic barns and the tradition of quilting. They have a great antique quilt show and have really fostered quilting in this area.

    My professional women's group has decided to have a fundraiser highlighting this cause since the president of our group who was an avid quilter passed away suddenly about a month ago. She was 61.

    As a tribute to her, part of the funds will go to the quilted barn campaign and the other part will go in an endowment fund in her name for scholarships reserved for women over the age of 25 to return to college.

    I could not say no. Barns, Americana, quilting and scholarships for needy women all in one place!!!! The only other thing they could have added was a puppy dog. But they were still sneaky and had one of my bridge friends make sure I made the meeting, knowing I would volunteer. She actually winked at me in the meeting when I said Ill get you a quilt made!

    Just print sucker on my forehead.

    April 8. The way the pattern works I can make a 58 by 58 wallhanging. I told them I would try for the twin but they might get the wallhanging.

    It's all cut and I will sew today.

    The only weird thing about the GO is the static cling...does anybodyelse get that?

    Yes I get the static cling. I think I might try rubbing the matt with a dryer sheet and see if that helps???

    I use the static spray found in the laundry aisle. It's called Static Guard or Static Shield. It lasts a long time when sprayed on the mat. I use it to spray my hairbrush too!
