Bottomless Pile

Earlier this week, a couple of friends and I turned this...

...into this....

My guild is involved in a lot of charity sewing and over the years, we've accumulated a lot of donated fabric. The top photo shows just one of the many totes filled with various sizes of fabric pieces. The collection was starting to get out of control, so with two Accuquilt Go Cutters at our disposal, we made up kits for at least 15 quilts. We used the tumbler, square, and strip dies.

Hopefully, some of our fellow guild members will volunteer to put these tops together. (hint, hint)

Those GOs are amazing! Think what your wrist would feel like using a rotary cutter to cut all of that fabric.

Thanks for the great idea. I've been cleaning out my fabric and I have a GO. I know my guild would love to receive pre-cut kits all ready to go.

wow, great work. My guild had a cutting bee a while back. They cut 6" squares for MCC to make comforters for relief projects. I don't know how many they did, but more than enough for 10 comforters.

Ohhh, very clever! That Go cutter is sure handy-wish I had one. If I was in your guild, I would make a quilt or 3 from your kits.

Isn't it fun what you can do with an AccuQuilt? Love it.
