2 weeks...

I've officially had my Accuquilt GO! fabric cutter for about 2 weeks now. I must say that Buster and I are getting along VERY well. I've heard no complaints from him even when I sneak a 7th layer of fabric under the cutting mat. Even before I was lucky enough to win my GO!, my wife found some dies at 1/2 price. One of the dies allows you to make this cute quilt. Accuquilt calls it the GO! baa baa baby quilt. I call it, too damned cute! If you enjoy appliqué, I think you'd enjoy this quilt. Whats nice about the GO! is you can iron your Mistyfuse or whatever you use onto the fabric BEFORE you cut it, that way after you run the fabric through the cutter its ready to be ironed onto the main fabric.

Pardon the picture, it was taken with my cell phone as my digital camera is on its trip to the East Coast for repairs.. Seems its known to shock people if they touch the metal accent piece, right dear?

If you decide that this quilt is one you'd like to try, I'd suggest constructing it in stages, sky, ground and fence. That way when you're sewing down the appliqué pieces, you're not having to deal with a monster piece of fabric.. If you look at my quilt and the pattern from Accuquilt, you'll notice my sheep are moved in order to avoid dealing with huge amounts of fabric while stitching down the fused pieces.

If you'd like to make this quilt and don't have the cutter and/or die, let me know. I'd be more than happy to cut it for you and send your fabric back!!

The great thing about the GO! cutter is it allows you to use those scraps that you have no idea what to do with. The sun in this quilt was made with a scrap piece of fabric no bigger than a 3 x 2 inch piece.
