One of the blogs I follow closely is Katy Quilts. Katy is a prolific quilter, has an interest in all genres of fabrics, collects antique sewing items, and is a longarm quilter! She is always sharing beautiful quilts and many of them are made with scraps. I always enjoy seeing what she is up to!
One of the things that caught my eye early is that Katy is always sharing all these stacks of beautifully cut fabric that she is getting ready to sew up into a quilt. I soon realized that she was using a die cutter for her fabric cutting and I was immediately intrigued. I
stalked watched her on Instagram and her blog to learn more about it.
I finally just got up the courage and reached out to Katy and asked her what she used and if she felt it was useful in scrap quilting. After reading her wonderful and informative response, I knew I wanted her to share how she uses her Accuquilt for scrap management. And she agreed!
So hop over to her blog post and read how she uses her Accuquilt Studio to quickly cut her scraps into useable sizes. She even shares a brilliant idea for sewing up those scraps and then cutting them!
As I said in an earlier post, I am saving my pennies for a die cutting system. I am not sure if I want the Studio or the Go! Big Electric model. If you have any information to share, I would love to hear about it!
I have even been downloading some of the free patterns already so I can start playing right away!
Thanks so much Katy for sharing!!
