A New Way To Cut It All Up

My Christmas shopping is practically done. Yipee! that's a first for me. I usually wait until the last minute. I don't know what inspired me. It's a bit easier this year. Two of my Bah Humbug children decided they didn't want to exchange presents this year. First born Jill to the rescue! They all decided to drastically limit the quantity and the money spent. And I'm OK with that.

So, now I have time to do what I like to do. Make quilts, of course! I bought myself an early Christmas present this year. You could say it is a business expense. I am getting ready for my first show in February, by cutting tons of 3-1/2" squares with my new GO cutter. .
These will all turn into Half-Square triangles made with Stitching Lines.

I think I need to cut some orange squares. that's next.
I learned quickly the key to success in cutting with the GO cutter. I have to put the fabric on the die in the right direction. And a piece of paper on top of the fabric seems to be needed to get accurate cuts. But that's a small price to pay for the speed of cutting. I think I really like this cutter.
