Just Because I Could!

Yesterday I went to the Sit and Sew at The Quilt Shop with Annie and some of the other girls. I planned to get some of their pre-cut papers and add a couple more Tilda fabrics to my collection and then I was going to work on my stitchery. The lovely Allison informed me they had a Go Cutter 
with a large hexagon die. 
 So what was a girl to do? 
 Start cutting out hexagons, of course! 
In no time at all I had 96 hexagons cut out. It really wasn't my plan to start this quilt yet and it's going to be a long term project. I'll do some more cutting next week!
