    Finally decided on my next project. It's called Buckeye Beauty. I got about 8 squares cut then things just started to happen. It's been about 2 weeks since my last cut, I guess I'll give it another go.

    Any hints or tips for faster cutting. I was suppose to get the June Tailor cutting tool, but as I said things happen.

    I just looked it up and it's sew pretty!
    Do you have a regular rotary cutter and mat??
    That would be a b$*^) to cut all of them with scissors~~

    I'm making a Dresden Plate baby quilt and believe me I know what you are going through. It's going to take time to make sure all of your cuts are accurate and square. If you could fold the material so you could cut 3 or 4 pieces at a time it would be a little faster.

    I've made 2 of those in a queen size. I got so carried away on the first one I made that I had enough for the second and still have 80 squares tucked away to make a valance and some pillows.
