More cutting -

For my Antique Squirrel
Was on the agenda today - 
After I found some left over binding - 
That will be perfect for "Bar" units - 
The DARK GREEN is already 1-1/2" wide - 
And the LIGHT  GREEN is 1-3/4" wide -
So I trimmed it to 1-1/2" easily - 
After I "unsewed" it - LOL -
Then I decided to cut the remainder of the "center squares" - 
And pinned them in groups of 5 - 
So that they are easy to count - 

Then I layered some scraps on a HST die - 

Ran it through my cutter - 
And took off the excess around the border - 

Then sorted though the pieces - 
And pulled out the "bits" that you see at the top of the photo - 

These will be added to the basket of HST - 

And I can cut more as I go along - 

Until I run out of "center squares" - 
That need "corners" - LOL - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I have used the die cutter to trim a lot of odd shaped scraps. I think I even did a video on it.

The die cutter makes that part of the process so easy, doesn't it?
