Cut, sew, cut again, sew again

Been working on another quilt.

Got my strips sewn only to figure out that the rail fence strip was a tad smaller than it should be. (operator error) I cut it apart anyway and I'll just trim the others down and work with it.
I've got my blocks up on my make-shift design wall, aka - the back of a Christmas tablecloth (clearance table at wally-world, $1.00) pinned up on the quilt in the guest room. You can also use these if you have a project on-the-go - just roll it up and everything stays in place. When they get dirty or worn out just toss 'em. So keep an eye out when they put the seasonal tablecloths on clearance after a holiday has passed. (I bought three that day) I can't take credit for this tip - a friend passed it along to me when she unrolled the project she had been carrying back and forth to quilt night.
