Cutting Party

My rotary cutter needs a break.  So do I. 

I've been cutting scraps for a new project using leftover jelly rolls, charm squares, and other bits of this and that.  To make sure there's enough contrast, I like to "audition" the fabrics by placing them side by side.

Sometimes it's helpful to see the fabrics without color, so I converted the photo to black and white. 

This helps identify any problems before it's necessary to un-sew! 
Time to wake up my machine and get these pieces put together.  Hope you have a great week.
