Create for a Cause Cutting

Did you read my last post?  Create for a Cause with Island Batik and Deb Tucker Studio 180  If you didn't see it, please go back and read my post and enter my giveaway for a Studio 180 Split Recs tool.

I stated that I was not going to finish my June project on time.  Here's an update on how it's going:

Before I began cutting, I put on a brand new rotary blade.  I always do this!  It is amazing how easy it is to cut with a fresh blade.  I order my blades in a multi pack from Missouri Star.  You can use my link to get 20% off any order of $50.00 or more here:  Missouri Star

I used my Deb Tucker Studio 180 Split Recs tool to cut out all of the triangle pieces for my quilt.  I cut for the largest size, 4" x 8" finished.  This tool is amazingly versatile.  You can cut units in so many different sizes.  If you haven't used Studio 180 tools before, they make it easy by sewing the units a little larger than needed and then trimming them down to size.  It was incredibly fast cutting out all the triangles I needed for my quilt.  It probably took me longer to choose the fabrics, then it did to cut them out.  Please visit my previous post to enter to win a brand new Split Recs tool, here:  Create for a Cause

I ironed all my fabrics with my Oliso smart iron and cut them into strips.  The directions are included with the ruler tool.  It is so easy to use.

The triangles are cut into pairs using the two fabrics that will be in your Split Recs unit.

Here is my pile of freshly cut Island Batik triangles.  I am using solid black, white, and a variety of bright colors from my stash for this project.  Now I'm all ready to sew!

Here's a look at my EQ8 drawing for this quilt.

I can't wait to finish this and donate it to Sleep in Heavenly Peace.  

All children deserve a safe, comfortable place to lay their heads. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to building, assembling, and delivering top-notch beds to children and families in need. Quilts Across America is a program that relies on the generosity of quilters everywhere to provide a quilt with each bed that is delivered by Sleep in Heavenly Peace.
