I am inept when it comes to using a rotary cutter, I have two from 1980 along with a little green cutting mat with no grid lines and one a bit larger with the grid lines. What I realized today is I need to take an up to date beginners quilt class, if for no other reason then to master the dreaded rotary cutter.
Anyway here is a photo of my tracing of the embroidery pattern for the pincushion we will be making its still on the light box (which really helps these old eyes).
The next class I need both of my embroidered pieces complete and ready to put them together, here is a photo of the front piece for the needle book though the photo isn't too clear

and to give me the encouragement I bought the kit so when I finish the pieces I am working on I have a new project to keep me busy, I'll use my light box to trace the pattern before the class.
I don't know what it is exactly about the Crab Apple Hill patterns that I like so much but I just ordered this pattern from an on line shop to work on after the class since the quilt shop doesn't carry the patterns (yet).
