Meg's Quilt and a Go! Baby GIVEAWAY!


Here is the quilt I created using the Accuquilt Go! Baby fabric cutter.  I originally blogged about it here.  This is for my "someday" baby girl.  I am not pregnant, nor will I be anytime soon, but I would love to have a little girl and name her Lola :)  Although honey is not on board with the name, I have my ways ;)


I've really wanted to use that citron green with grays and aqua, such a cool color combination.  Although the fabrics are girly, I needed to add the appliqué flowers to really make it pretty.


It's the prefect crib size, measuring 31" x 41".  

There's all sorts of fabrics in there, Heather Bailey, Michael Miller, MoMo for Moda...

I used a blanket stitch around the flowers.  Not quite sure how I'll quilt this, but I do know that I will not quilt it until after market :)


Next Thursday, May 5th I will be sharing a tutorial so you can make one too!  All of the piecing was cut with a Go! Baby fabric cutter, but you do not have to have one in order to create this.  I hope you'll come back and see :)

And the GIVEAWAY!


Your very own Go! Baby Fabric Cutter!  
$139.00 value
PLUS 3 dies of your choice!!
for mine I chose circles, 2.5" strips and the tumbler

The hexagon set would be fun, those are a pain to cut out by hand!

SewLindaAnn said...

My favorite die to cut with would probably be the circles. I would love to not have to use scissors to do it all the time. I make lots of yo yo's!

Brenda said...

Not sure what my favorite die would be. I haven't ever had the chance to use one. I'm guessing it might be a tumbler or I'm wanting to make a Dresden plate or a double wedding ring quilt.

A favorite die...Since I don't have any, I think I'd love any that I got. Probably circles, I can't cut those very smoothly.

Tyra @ SilverLily Sews said...

Ooh I've been eyeing one of these. I think my favorite die cutter would be the drunkards path. I've been wanting to try one of those but I'm too intimidated by all the cutting out without something like this.

Megan said...

I think I'd have to go with a hexagon cutter. I really want to try making some, but the idea of cutting out all of those hexagons doesn't sound like fun. This would make it so quick.

Heartsdesire said...

I love your quilt and I will be back next Thursday to check out the tutorial. Those flowers are so cute. My choice of die would be the hexagon. I've been wanting to make a hexagon quilt forever.

Yup, I follow you. I think the heart die cut would be awesome. You can do so many different things with a heart shape. Flowers, lady bugs and rain drops if you cut them in half. Ahh, the possibilities....
