Week 2 Berry Cross Quilt Along: Fabric Cutting

Hi and welcome back to the Berry Cross quilt along! It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s fabric choices on Facebook and in the linky photo gallery. If you haven’t checked them out, click here to visit the linky and view all the uploaded photos. So many beautiful fabric choices!

If you uploaded a photo to last week’s linky, then you had a chance to win last week’s giveaway! I compiled a list of all the participants and assigned a number to everyone. Then I used Random.com to pick a winner. And the winner is…..
