What a difference new rotary cutter blades make!
I have just put a new one in the old cutter, and cut easily through 8 layers of fabric- hooray! This is a block or at least part of one from a Hawaiian quilt I am making, it is a long term project and I am almost at the end of the blocks.
Now to get them ready to take camping next week. I can sit and stitch for a few hours and they will almost be done. Then comes the machine quilting- my next favourite part.
