Go! Baby Go!

In my last post, I mentioned that I had something exciting to share.  Well, now's the time to spill the beans! I received an email a week or so ago from Carolyn of Accuquilt telling me that my blog was chosen to receive one of these wonderful machines:

Woo Hoo!  I was so excited!  I've wanted one of these for a while, stalked blogs entering contests hoping to win, but it never happened.  But then luck did happen, and now one has arrived at my door.

In Carolyn's email, she told me that I could pick three dies to go with the machine.  After my head stopped spinning, I finally settled on Tumblers, Hexagons and a Value Die pack with squares and half square triangles.  I'm so excited.  The Tumblers are going to be perfect for using up all that leftover fabric from my Civil War quilts, don't you think?  And is going to save hours upon hours of cutting those little Tumblers out by hand.  Woo Hoo!   And Hexagons - who doesn't love a Hexagon quilt?  But oh, the hours that would be spent on cutting those babies out.  I've given my Go! Baby a test run and I can't even tell you how fast it is to cut these shapes out!  So fast and the shapes are just perfect!!

And what's even more exciting?  I get to give one away - a Go! Baby Cutter and three dies  - to one of you out there in blogland!  I'm so excited about the whole thing.  So while I'm finishing up my cutting and putting a little something together, why don't you check out the Accuquilt site and look at what dies would tickle your fancy!  And while you're at it, sign up for their newsletter at this link - Accuquilt  Newsletter and find out all the exciting information about this great machine!

After I get my project together, I'll announce my giveaway!  So stay tuned!!

Congratulations. You're a lucky lady. Can't wait to see what beautiful things you will create with this handy cutter.
It took me a time to find out what it IS though. Never heard of it before and it didn't make sense until I watched couple of videos on their website. WOW...that's a real nice thing to have.

Hmmm... I think I'd pick the Hexagon, Stars, and the Pumpkin dies. :-)

What an honor to be hand-picked, Deb! Congratulations. I know whatever you decide to do, it will be awesome. I can't wait to see your creation and to hear about the gizzmo...I've seen them, read about them, but never have known someone to use one and then report (or should I say "show-n-tell")! Congrats again!

One of these days we're going to have to get together so you can show me how this would work doing some of my cross stitch finishing! Not sure I could justify the expense, I'd like to see it work first!
