I'm making a single-Irish-chain for my cousin & his wife for their wedding. 9 patches are all done. I only need to cut 9 more plain squares, of at least 8". My cutting and seam allowances are not yet as accurate as I would like, so I was cutting them larger, then trimming them down once I sewed them to the 9 patches. Now, I only have a piece of fabric left that's 19" x 40 1/2". I can easily get two rows, but I can't make even one cutting mistake in cutting each row into 5 blocks.
I laid this piece of fabric on my table last Saturday morning, intending to cut these squares, and even finish the top by the end of the day. But it's still sitting there on the table a week later. Oy, I can see how dramatic I'm being.
Do you ever get nervous to cut your fabric?
