This year we are trading 5" RED charm squares.
Each month, the ladies bring their yardage
and we cut them on a STUDIO cutter
Fabric gets ironed, selvages removed, 8 layers are placed on die,
covered with Studio plastic sheet...
ACCUcut - DABRA!
48 squares are cut with ONE crank of the handle!
Quick as wink (well, maybe 20 winks) our squares are traded.
