    Go Ahead and Cut it....NOOOOOO

    Found it.....ordered it.....got it....... TERRIFIED to cut it cuz it's so beautiful.

    DH wants 2 lap quilts for the living room made out of this.

    OK, I will start slow and pre-shrink it first and then hold my breath and CUT!

    I would not cut that beautiful fabric! NO NO NO!

    Just sandwich it and quilt it.

    Maybe back it with minky! One with red backing the other with blue backing.

    Oh - it's so gorgeous!

        Cut this, then buy more and save that piece!

          I meant to only order 5 yards but ordered 5 1/2 by mistake.....ohhh my bad.

          OK Cyndi, I like your idea, cut and then buy more. (DH DOESN'T like your idea though.....too bad for him)

          I need a total of 160 6" blocks for the 2 lap quilts (48 X 60) so this may be a spring....summer...fall project. lol

          OH FYI it was 9.25/yrd ....good deal

            I understand you hesitating to cut it. It is the scariest part of the quilting I do. And that is really so pretty.

              Wow that so beautiful! How about you just cut squares and sash it?

              These were paper pieced but it looks like one fabric.

                Hey Lorie, there will be narrow strips in 2 different co-ordinating sold colors separating the burst of color of the main fabric in each block.

                I was soooo smart when I designed the block. I drew the layout for one block and then did a mirror image for the second block.
                Silly me, they were actually the SAME DARNED block just turned sideways.

                So I only need one block design and then just rotate it to get the layout I wanted. (drawing second block was sure a waste of time lol...guess I'm not that smart after all)

                BUT, I have no seams or matching points to worry about when these all go together. Good thing since there are a lot of blocks.

                Fabric is coming out of the dryer in just a few minutes. Then I will take the plunge, I promise.

                    It is beautiful, just cut off that extra 1/2 yard and keep it to pet.

                      I agree with this idea since you got 1/2 extra cut it off and save it to look at and touch!!

                        Whoa! That is too pretty to cut. But I bet you can get some beautiful cuts out of that.

                              I would use it for backing fabric so I would not have to cut it!
