New Toys

Timing is everything. Turns out that Accucut is having a sale on their die cut machines and you can use them to cut fabric. I called around to the local quilt stores to see if anyone had one. What luck. One local store had one. I cut some strips of flannel and headed over to test out the rag edge die. It worked wonderfully. I took the squares home and sewed them together. I thought the fringe would make it difficult to sew, but that was not the case. The only problem was when I washed the quilt I didn’t like how the finished quilt looked. When I make my rag edge quilts I use a half inch seam. The Accucut die uses an inch seam. The good news is that Accucut has a program to create custom dies. I was able to order the GrandMark machine and a custom die to give me exactly what my customer wanted. It should arrive just in time to create the quilt.
