As you can see from the above photo, there is no reason why I can’t start making a quilt top. I want to. I really do. I have the supplies I need to get started.

Plenty of books.

Well, you ask, what’s stopping me? I guess, my 10 fingers. And the thought of going through life minus a few of them.

I have a confession. I AM AFRAID OF MY ROTARY CUTTER. Cutters, actually, since I have several. Just looking at them makes me break out in a sweat.

The one still in the packaging, unopened, was THE best, most expensive one I could find. Now I find out from someone who has one, it isn’t. Something about slippage and not cutting through the fabric cleanly. Then what the heck good is it!! I guess the best no longer means anything.

A friend told me about a glove with stainless steel threads. The kind used by fishermen. It may be cumbersome at first but at least I should feel safe. So… once I have one, I’ll get started. 😀
