What is fussy cutting? It’s when you find a particular design, picture or print in your fabric and then cut around it so it fits into a patch or block on your quilt or sewing project. Often fussy cutting is used to create a secondary pattern within the pattern. It’s all about cutting your fabric with intent and being conscious about how the design/print/colour of your fabric will be used in the completed project.
I launched The Fussy Cutters Club on 20 June 2014 and since then it has gone from strength to strength.
I started The Fussy Cutters Club as a way of helping those that love fussy cutting connect, share their work, ask questions, learn new tricks and have a good time.
As part of The Fussy Cutters Club I organise and run projects for people to make and share that utilise fussy cutting techniques. It’s a great way to have more fun with fabrics.
If you’d like to join or be involved simply head to Facebook and request membership to The Fussy Cutters Club.
In September 2014 The Fussy Cutters Club hosted it’s first ever group event; The Dilly Bag-a-Long.
Using Judy Newman‘s Dilly Bag pattern members (and non-members) of the group made their own version of the Dilly Bag. Our 100 patterns were purchased as part of this event.
