ACCUQUILT GO CUTTER CAUSES GIDDINESS!!!

That is right, I am just beside myself with giddiness...... see for yourself...


You all have seen the center section of this quilt, it is made from scraps, I had actually cut some out a long long long time ago, and I had some 1/2 triangle squares from another project and....yep...there is More.... I had cut out a bunch with the Go cutter when I first got it, infact I was being run over by 2 1/2 inch square.

So.....I ordered the flower applique dies with this very intention.

Didn't know exactly how until I saw Splitting Stitches blog today....then it came to me. I spent my morning with my Go cutter.

It took me 4 hours to iron the fusible, cut, and iron on the quilt...oh...and to attach the border and play on the computer. Do you think I could have done 32 flowers, 32 circles, 32 stems in that short of time without the cutter? NO>>>NO>>>NO>>>> IT IS AWESOME!!!! No tracing....it is wonderful....

All I need to do now is applique them down. YEPEEEE!!!!!

View from the air.....my chair was my airplane....great view wouldn't you say?

I had cut out some leaves to add on it but decided not to, too busy....so this is what I did with the leaves and......I had a few extra scraps with the fusible on them....and I made a pink one. Now.....I really like the six petals.....do you like the six or the five? I am going to use both in the same quilt, no matter to me...waste not want not...right????

For the final border of the quilt above, I have sewn together more 2 1/2 inch squares and hopefully, have enough to do a double row....if not.....you know what I will be using.....

  7. Love the scrappy quilt. The flower borders is a great touch.

    I like the 6 petals. Five petals make it look like one petal fell off.

  21. Barb, I really love this quilt :)

    I like the 5 petals better... but I like things a little wonky... I think the 6 appeals more to people who are a little more traditional. But that's just my 2cents!

  22. I'm thinking a better title for this post would be "Accuquilt Go cutter causes GADDYness!!" Your work is amazing. The more I see of what you've done with the GO! the more I need to get my hands one one!

  23. I like the 5 petal better...but I like things that AREN'T perfectly symmetrical :)

  27. Love your quilt, Barb - that GoCutter is really great!!! I like the six petals, too. Usually, I prefer an odd number, but the six seems to be a little better.

  30. The flower border is perfect for your scrappy quilt. Beautiful! I like both 5 and 6. The pink flower wants a stem :D

  31. Now, how cute is that! I love the border and I agree, the leaves would have probably been too busy.

    I like the 6 leaves myself...Good job on all of it.

    Our LQS rents out the Go cutter. I plan on renting it and trying it out first to see if I rally want one...
