Last week I decided it was time to see if I could use my rotary cutter, and to my surprise and pleasure I discovered I could once again use it. It still takes a lot of effort and much more time, with plenty of rests in between, but I'm sure if my shoulder continues to heal the way it is, it won't be long and I'll be back to my regular pace.
With that being said I was itching to have a play with fabrics, but not yet ready to cut into these pretties.It will be a few more weeks until my shoulder and arm are strong enough to cut these up.
this tutorial to whip up a lap quilt. The tops ready for the backing and quilting.
So what are the lessons I learnt in all of this.
1. Always ask to see the work of the quilter you have chosen.
2. Make sure He/She does not have a "Not responsible for tucks or puckers" policy.
3. If you're not in the position to see their work personally, then ask your quilting/blogging friends for referrals.
4. Ask the quilter to email photo's of detailed work.
5. Research, research, research.
