That Fall Medley Die looks like so much fun! You are making some beautiful keepsakes - too pretty to use! I saw your post at Sew We Quilt earlier this morning and you made me smile more than once! Madame Samm is awesome, isn't she? This must be like a full time job for her.

JustCindy said...

You have been having a cutting good time. They are all so pretty but my favorite is #3.

Patty D from NC said...

great post at SWQ. I'd love to win #2.

KarenC said...

Enjoy your blogs. Would really enjoy a Go Cutter and the aplliques in #2! Haven't tried to applique by machine very much but am ready to try.

Susan said...

I really didn't think that I would use the applique' dies enough to make them worth having, but you have shown some great ideas for them! (I really need to learn to think outside the quilt box!) Loved your post over at Sew we Quilt too and the photo of you buried in the scraps? Too funny!

Melinda said...

I've been a follower and I enjoy your work. Loving your Accuquilt pieces. I have only done a little applique but I like it so far!

tpott said...

I'm a new follower to your blog. I'd love to own a go cutter and the Fall Medley die would be my first die. Your #2 is my favorite, just as Fall is my favorite time of year. Thanks so much for participating with Madame Samm and offering your wonderful tutorial. Good luck everybody!!! ;->

Mary Grace McNamara said...

They all look wonderful, but if I were to choose one it would be the collection in picture #2. I could make a lovely table runner or some placemats with those!

Thanks!

Sue said...

Hi Barb, Thanks so much for your Giveaway as well as the one at Sew We Quilt! I love the pieces in Photo No. 3 - I could definitely have fun with them. I would just LOVE to win an Accuquilt too. I loved the photo of you under the pile of scraps, and the "do these scraps make my hand look fat" that gave me a laugh!! Hugs n Blessings from Sue in Oz xx

West Michigan Quilter said...

You are having so much fun with that cutter and I just love what you are creating. I swore I would not get another gadget but you are wearing me down! Looks like a must-have!

Deanna said...

You know I am a faithful reader. :) #2 would be my choice. You have inspired me to think of many ways these could be used. I would make a tablerunner for my mother, I think.

sewhappy said...

Hi Barb!
I'm a new follower! I found you through your delightful, and inspiring post at SewWeQuilt. You made me laugh out loud, and this was a good day for that. vbg
Thank you for the tutorial. Your pot holder is one of the nicest I've seen, and when I grow up I want to be as creatvie as you are. hee
If, by some chance I would win your giveaway I would LOVE #1. What gorgeous colors.
(BTW are you sure used hair thingies can't be used? I have lots of them! LOL LOL LOL teasin')

Kathy H said...

I love the colors in the #1 group. I can see how it would be addicting to start using the Go.

Maddy said...

My favourite in no #2. I wish l had one of these playful Go Cutters. Think it would be so much fun :) Love you blog.

Pam said...

I like #2 the best.

Ray and Jeanne said...

Madame Samm sent me this way and I am so glad she did! I love your ideas and can't wait to try some. Thanks! ~ Jeanne

Pamela Nees said...

Just started following! Love the acorn and pumpkin applique!

Willow said...

Love them all, but I am partial to number 1.

Deonn said...

Oh, Barb, you are hilarious!! So glad you were able to unbury yourself from your pile - Scrap Breeding - hee hee! I ♥ my Go! Cutter, and the AccuQuilt team, and Steve Nabity, the genius who invented this marvelous toy! I think I know who invented the two-toned die, but I can't say because I was sworn to secrecy this summer when I toured their facilities! Had a ton of fun adventures last Spring/Summer when I won 2nd place in the AccuQuilt Barn Quilt Design contest. Loved the energy of this wonderful company! You can read all about it here: http://quiltscapesquilting.blogspot.com/2011/06/quilting-on-go.html

I'm a long time reader of your blog, and now I'm an official follower. Thanks for the additional giveaway. I'm drawn to more tradition fall colors so #2 is most appealing to me.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Wow these look great! I don't have a GO but it's nice to see what you have created with them. I like #1. Thanks!

Snoodles said...

Awesome tut at SWQ! I love your project, and I would love to win the first group of goodies - I guess I'm a stick in the mud, and love traditional holiday colors! LOL I'm working on a tut for my blog, with (whispering) my new Go baby! I guess I should have considered some of the applique dies!

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I love all three of them, but #2 really reaches out to me for some reason. I love seeing what you're doing with the Accuquilt dies - you think outside the box (which I definitely DON'T do), so you give more and more ideas to me. Thanks! And thanks for the giveaway.

Rosa said...

Wonderful tutorial you have been fun playing with the Go!

If I win ,number 1.Thanks.

ritainalaska said...

The fall medley die is so great. I love number 2 and keep telling myself that I will be okay without buying a Baby Go!, but I am not so sure. I am getting closer to giving in. Maybe after vacation.
