This Halloween table topper was pretty much cut with scraps that were destined for the trash. The brights in this project were of such small pieces, all left overs from other projects, that it wouldn’t have been worth it for me to pull out my mat, rotary cutter, and a ruler to cut 2 1/2″ squares from the itsy bitsy scraps. But I found it very easy and fast to cut squares and strips with my GO! Yeap….this is essentially a freebie project!
I also want to remind everyone of a great opportunity next week. Many Bloggers with AccuQuilt products are participating in an AccuQuilt cut fabric swap. Participants will be posting insights on their blogs about the fabric and dies that they are willing to cut, if a swap can be negotiated. These bloggers will be indexed via a mcklinky on a post on this blog starting early Monday, October 18th and will be open to Bloggers with AccuQuilt products to add their links thru Friday October 22nd.
Everyone is welcome to visit the participating blogs and if you find a proposed swap that interests you, you can contact that blogger to negotiate a swap. This is a great way to swap for fabric that is accurately cut with an AccuQuilt product, and for those that own AccuQuilt products, you will hopefully be able to find a swap for fabric cut with a die that you may not have and want to try.
In theory, the majority of the swaps will be between Bloggers with AccuQuilt products. Thus, if you participate you’ll be sending someone fabric cut with your AccuQuilt product & die(s) and you’ll be receiving fabric from someone that has cut their fabric with their respective AccuQuilt product & die(s). But the possibility does exist that a non-blogger/non-AccuQuilt owner may contact a participating blog to negotiate a swap. In this case it is up to the participant to determine if they want to make the swap, as they will be sending accurately “cut” fabric but what they receive back is what the two will negotiate for.
In anticipation of this AccuQuilt cut fabric swap next week, I’d love to hear your thoughts on what colors of fabrics are of interest to you, and if there are any particular AccuQuilt die cuts that you would be interested in swaping for. Your feedback can help me create my proposed swap, and possible be of use to other Bloggers with AccuQuilt products as they propose their swap on their blogs.
Hope you come back next week to check out the fun we’re planning with this AccuQuilt cut fabric swap.
