I'm still playing catch up on the Layer Cake Quilt Along. Today my boyfriend attended a body building competition so I got the entire evening to myself. He got to meet his idol, and I got to sew. We're both pretty happy today :). I had some issues putting together block 11 for the LCQA. I ended up having my middle "E" pieces being too long and having to cut them down. I'm pretty happy with my finished result though:

It's a tad 'wonky' but I think it looks fine. I only have one more block to put together for this quilt along. It's crazy to me that it's already done! I feel like it just started. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product.
I also have some other fun to share :) I got an Accuquilt Go! fabric cutter! Yay!!
I've been thinking about getting one for quite awhile now. I have a disability that really affects my ability to cut some things. I figured a fabric cutter would help. I found a great deal on the mix and match starter set, and I had my tax return money - so I decided to go for it! It came with 9 dies including the one that comes with the Go itself.
I just want to forget all my other projects and cut fabric! So far it seems like it'll be exactly what I need to help me on the days that rotary cutting isn't going to work. I think the only downside to this is going to be wanting to buy every die that goes with it. I've already got a few more ordered.
Well that's it for me today. I hope everyone is having a great weekend!!
