Fearlessly figuring out the tips, tricks and cheats to better quilting. Because I want it done yesterday.

In tidying up my sewing room (which is a never ending endeavour), I came across several envelopes of pieces that I had pre-cut some time ago. These had been intended for a quilt design that I was very keen on... at the time. Now, I'm not.
They have officially become Scraps.
This is the very reason why I rarely ever do a massive pre-cut before I start to work. It's my own, private Murphy's Law: A complete, total pre-cut will ultimately result in an abandoned, unfinished quilt. I lose steam in all that preparatory activity, and I become my own buzz kill. So, "cut a little, sew a little" is the way forward for me.
What works for you? A big, pre-cutting session, or a "little by little" approach? Let me know what you think!
