Block Swap Rails

I bought a martelli cutter so that I can cut sitting down. I think I will like it for sitting and trimming blocks, though it seems to collect lint in the cover and I had to blow it out periodically.

These are rail fence blocks for a swap. The design wall shows some of the blocks I received. I think it probably needs appliqué – maybe houses around the perimeter? Or just put together as is and used as a practice quilting¸ then donated? Regardless, it will be put up for a while so that I can finish the mystery quilt.

I also marked my new GO dies – winding ways and chisel. I wanted the sharpie marker dried before the weekend so I can make some trial blocks this weekend.
