AccuQuilt has given me the pleasure of offering up a chance for one of you to win one of the most sought after tools of the year! Yes,it's true, quilters and crafters alike are wild to get their hands on one of these jewels. They have all heard how much of a time saver it is and about all the incredible dies that are available to make so many shapes. And of course they have all heard how all the pieces they cut are exactly the same size! Very important to us quilters and crafters.
Yep, you guessed it, one of the delightful and ever so handy AccuQuilt GO! Baby! Squee, I can hear you! How many have you seen being given away and how many have you done this and done that and then done some more, follow her, follow them, ring around the rosy stuff, just to get your name in the pot? I am going to try to keep this giveaway very simple and quick.
But first just a word or two about this fabulous and ever so sweet AccuQuilt GO! Baby. Here is what she looks like, oh and I named mine Betty:
And here is one of the things you can end up with:
(not quite finished but soon to be on granddaughters wall)
There is a great tutorial on my blog that shows detailed pics of Dana using the GO! Baby
I really like the ease of cutting through up to 6 layers of fabric at one time. You do have to think about the best way to lay the fabric to eliminate too much fabric waste and not cut on the bias. 4" squares fit most of the largest die cuts. It was easy to turn, the die went through without any effort, although I found that if you start in it slightly angled, it will go through a bit easier. The pieces are all identical in size and cuts down cutting time to a fraction of what you would do with a rotary cutter or
gasp with scissors. A real bonus is that if you go here -------> http://www.accuquilt.com/ email-signup and sign up for their email news you will receive 22 FREE patterns, that's all you have to do, just give them your email address. Don't be afraid, they don't sell it or give it away, they keep your information very private and you won't be inundated with tons of emails. AccuQuilt is good like that!! They are some of the best people in the world to deal with, friendly, never in a hurry, answer emails promptly and their "Live Chat" is excellent. I like to just stop in and say hi! Spend some time looking through their web pages. They are so many awesome pictures of things that can be made using one of AccuQuilts Die Cutters (even a skirt and vest, yes really, I saw it over there).
So here we go and good luck to each and everyone of you!
