I can’t trust myself. I’m buying pre-cut.

that’s right Jude!!!! I am tearing now!!! those 3 (my mom, my sister and my cousin) we talking about RIPPING cloth… and a huge light went on in my brain….. because it RIPS STRAIGHT!!! right down the weave….. so now when i need 6 feet long — 6 inches wide…. i just cut a little notch and RRRRRRIPPPPPPPPPPPPPP and there it is!!!!!!!
simplicity. relative accuracy. no long boards necessary!!!

Wow!! I didn’t see the light bulb over your head when we talked about ripping……
I know you don’t spend much time in quilt stores, but the best ones always rip their cottons instead of cutting.

yeah, i go to my local sewing shop only once or twice a year and i usually only buy remnants from the bargain bin….i get most of my material from garage sales, the garbage and my mom’s stash…….(thanks EL!!!!)
ripping has opened up a whole new world for me!!!
remember that old DEVO song…..”RIP IT…RIP IT GOOD……”

hi Jan: I thought that the hint was letting your fabric or project talk to you. I do know that if I am having problems with something I put it away till something comes to me and then I know what to do, so I do TALK with my fabric. Your aunt toots thinks that is something else, but guess she knows me well.

hey mom!!! (aka grandma H) it’s no magic trick that my fabric talks to me (us)…. and it’s probably no surprise to people that have a love affair with fabric….
