In case you aren't familiar, it is a Quilt A-Long that a TON of bloggers are participating in, all over the world. The finished quilt will consist of 111 blocks, and we plan on doing about 2 blocks per week. I am VERY behind.

So, guess what I did today? I unpacked this box!
I also realized that the old method of cutting out the template, tracing it onto manilla folders, then cutting out the folders was not intelligent. I bet I was loosing some accuracy by cutting twice.
So, given my unhappiness with my previous method. I took some suggestions and went Staples and had all of the templates laminated. I hesitated doing this because I thought that it would be wicked expensive. But... it was only $8.80 for the 5 sheets that I ended up needing.
I was pretty determined to get these all cut out today. I knew I that I would need some serious entertainment.....
1 HILARIOUS DVD later..... they are all cut out!
This week I am definitely going to be catching up. I don't plan on being fully caught up, but I really need to get back into this groove.
