INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE "GO"

Sorry for the second post today....I have had many comments wanting to know more about the "GO"....

Below are the tumblers I made....yes, it needs to be ironed better.... If you read the post below you will know it took no time to cut out these tumblers and I would say only took about an hour to sew them together...isn't that awesome?



I took some island goodness and finished up the butterflies...



I wanted to finish up the butterfly quilt before I showed it but....I have a husband that needs attention...poor guy. Not only is he competing with Mr. Pfaff, he now has the "GO" cutter to compete with.

Oh...How I want to play.....having company tonight too....gotta make a cake, gotta finish laundry, clean up my "GO" mess....sewing mess.....why do I gotta? Can't I just play?

Lots of videos on the Accuquilt website on how to use the cutter, saving scraps, etc...

Now you know I adore the butterfly top!!!

Pat said...

Oh...I love them BOTH!!! I think you need to tell hubby that you are soon going to take the GO and fly around to show all your friends who don't HAVE one how much fun it is...and how easy it is to make a quilter faster with that cutter!!! (And if he agrees you should do that, I think you should fly to see ME first!!! And I'll get Tonya to come stay at my house while you are here, too. LOL)

How pretty Barb! You have been busy. So now that you have sewn them together do you think they are accurate?

SewCalGal said...

OMG you were a fast quilter before and with the AccuQuilt GO! you are going to be making quilts in lightening speed. Two tops finished and you've just arrived and home and just got your GO! I'm impressed. And both of these quilts are so cute. I love how you used the butterflies.

I think you need to pull out your AccuQuilt GO! and show your company. Could be fun entertainment. You could have your husband and company cutting fabric in no time and have 2-6 quilts finished by tomorrow! LOL!

Enjoy!

You are making me crazy here! LOL. I bought some "extra" fabric today to play with when mine arrives. I have been watching youtube videos about the GO!

Yes, put it all away and spent time the your hubby for the next 3 or four days! Then maybe mine will be here. Ha ha.

Love the Go quilts. I have been collecting my fabric for the tumbler quilt and would love to make the apple core quilt with the GO dies. And would love to make the Hexagon as well. Only with a Go Cutter will I ever get these made. :-)
