Prepping for a Class

 This afternoon I started prepping for an upcoming scrap class.  I am teaching my Geese Migration class in Roseburg Oregon in about a week and half.

I like to take lots of scraps with me to share with students.

When I need to cut my scraps into a lot of 2.5" squares, I love my AccuQuilt Studio cutter.
I can layer the scraps over the multiples die and run it through the cutter and soon have a stack of 2.5" squares.

I can quickly top off my 2.5" storage box.  You can see the squares stand up on end in some silverware trays (Bed Bath and Beyond) that all fit nicely in a project box.  I sort them all by colors too so students can always find the perfect scrap for the blocks they are working on.

The Geese Migration quilt is probably my favorite class to teach.  The class will be Friday April 22nd and is hosted by the Umpqua Valley Quilters.  
It will be part of their annual quilt show held at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. 

 I hope to maybe see some of you there!

Cut Time, Quilt More

AccuQuilt has lots of styles of cutters to fit your individual needs.  I really like that they now have starter sets for their Go! series.  They always have lots of deals available too!

Look at all those yummy squares! AccuQuilt seems like a great timesaver. A few years back I spent days cutting scraps and decided never again. Now I'm cutting scraps into squares and strips after each finished item. That way I don't have a scrap bin anymore, only boxes with squares! :) Your quilt is gorgeous, love it!

My Geese Migration is in the Next TBQ pile for custom quilting. One of my favorite quilts!

Using the Accuquilt cutter is the best way to handle scraps. We hosted Cyndy to teach her Migration Geese class a couple of years back, and her 2.5" square collection is to die for! So if you should get a chance to take her class - just do it!
