I've made the first cuts

Whilst I am patiently awaiting the arrival of my "Strawberry Fields" Bundle and in an attempt to keep myself busy I started ...... copying the patterns (for ease of tracing) and cutting my cream and beige's.


All cut and labeled ready to go as soon as postie brings me that fabric.
Come on customs... release it!  :o)

How is every one else going?

That must be frustrating to be waiting (patiently??) for your mail.

I've only made the cuts from my first beige background for the patty cakes block but perhaps I need to go ahead and cut the backgrounds and patchwork blocks like you did.
