When is a sewing day not a sewing day?

When you spend the whole day cutting out instead! I'm making a quilt for my son using frog fabrics as the feature. On Saturday and Sunday I fussy cut 30 frogs. I hate fussy cutting!! The results were well worth it though.



Today I spent the day cutting the rest of the fabric. For the record, I cut 162 2 inch squares, 120 2x5.5 inch strips and 71 2x8.5 inch strips. Now all I have to do is sew it together...

Oh wow, I love frogs (our nursery is decked out in the froggy manchester - LOL) can't wait to see the finished quilt :)

That is certainly alot of cutting! I don't know how you did it all at once - with Austy's car/train/plane prints I just did a few of the fussy cut squares at a time and stitched them, but then again, I'm impatient!

Forgot to say - those frog prints are mighty cute!

Did you want any more? I have lots of different frog prints; if you let me know the size of the squares I'll send some!

Thanks for the offer Emma, but I've been collecting the frogs for this for years! I have frogs coming out my ears.
If I cut as I go I get confused! Easier to cut it all in one go for me!
