My next cutting projects were for the two 12" Quilt Block Swaps. Although my machine is still waiting for service, I gathered the fabric requests, printed off the patterns and cut away on both. The red and white is going to be a Disappearing 4-Patch that is quick and is really nice. The other in blue/tan/white is a Snowball block pattern that I've not made. White is 36 squares cut at 1.5". Yikes.
And then, lo and behold, one of Pet Beds is loaded with scraps that would have gone into the trash. This represents only two months of trimming. Before I sew up the opening, I will take out the scraps and re-fill the pillow to pack them evenly.
