IT’s GO! TIME!!.. GO!OD LUCK!!

Yes, that’s right!  It’s GO! TIME!! 

First comes the tutorial…PART ONE…and then we will get to the GO! GIVE AWAY!! 

image

As you know I received an Accuquilt GO! Fabric Cutting Machine and for the last few days I have been playing with my new pal!  To say that I love Lady GO! GO! is an understatement!!  She is sew easy, quick and accurate…she is every quilter’s best friend! AND she is light and portable..perfect for travel!

My challenge for this tutorial was to ONLY use the 1 1/2” and the 2 1/2” strip cutter to make a quilt and to use only scrap fabric from my stash.  In other words…I would only use my rotary cutter for squaring up blocks…

So let me show you what I did…

I gathered some homespun cottons left over from other projects…a little scrappy but what the heck..

P1090627

I pressed each piece ready for the cutter…

P1090629

I got the Lady GO!GO! Cutting Machine out with the two strip dies..isn’t she pretty!!  Did you notice that she matches my Pea pod (laptop)?

P1090631-1

Then I measured the width of the blades on the cutter…You can’t have the fabric hanging over the die and besides, I don’t want to waste any fabric.

P1090641

    I quickly cut my fabric this width to fit through the machine…  P1090633  Done!P1090635 I laid four layers of fabric on the die…  P1090637

Put the cutting mat on top

P1090639 and rolled it through..lickity split!!

P1090640  It took me a little over an hour to cut all this fabric!!  Using my old rotary cutter this would have taken me two days (seriously..I have arthritis in my thumb and wrist..it would have taken me TWO DAYS!)

P1090643 Now I need to cut 2 1/2 inch squares for the centre blocks…sewww…I cut 2 1/2 strips… 

P1090644 and then cut the strips to fit through the machine going the other way…

P1090645 ..line them up like this…making sure they are nice and straight…P1090646

Ooops!!  Forgot to take a picture of my nice stack of 2 1/2” squares…in ONE roll through!!  They looked like these little guys only black.  These yellow squares are the 2 1/2 inch corner blocks…made in one roll just like the black stack!  I’m so loving this!! 

P1090648 Well that was FUN!!  Now comes the sewing!!  We are making courthouse step blocks.

Using the strips sew one strip to each end of the black centre block.  Trim..then…

P1090651

sew strips onto the other sides like this..…

P1090652

Now using the different coloured strips go around the block 3 more times (always starting on the same side that you first started on) until you have finished the block…it will look something like this. 

P1090649

   Do this 23 more times…until you have 24 blocks.   

P1090683

Now we are going to make 2 1/2 inch strip-pieced sashing…so….stitch strips together and cut to fit the machine…use your cardboard guide (makes it so easy!!)…

P1090684 

Roll it through…

P1090685 And..PRESTO…I love saying that!!  So easy!

P1090686

..minutes later…got to love it!!

P1090687

This is the end of Part 1 of our tutorial…pretty easy wasn’t it…and fast!!

Now comes the FUN PART!!  YOU COULD WIN YOUR OWN GO!! YES!! YOU!!  Thanks to the Accuquilt Go!s  generous offer, I get to give away a GO! Fabric Cutter to one of my followers! And that just might be YOU!!  SO exciting!! 

I’m so thankful and thrilled to have made such wonderful blogging friends…thanks to GO! I get to thank one in a very special way!!  So THANK YOU ACCUQUILT GO! for letting me play Santa!!

So the Rules of the Give Away are VERY simple~

1. For one entry, leave a comment that you are a follower.  If you would like to become a follower then please do so…it’s always nice to make new friends!!

2. If you blog about my give away then let me know and I will enter your name again.  Please do this in a separate comment.

The Give Away will end on Aug. 31GIVE AWAY IS NOW OVER!! I will randomly pick the lucky winner and post the results that morning!!  Please make sure that you have left a way for me to contact you.

That’s it…pretty easy…just like the GO! machine!  If you have an extra minute then you should stop by the Accuquilt GO! Online Store…and have a look at the different dies.  Accuquilt let me pick out three dies … you really should see which ones you would like…because you never know!!  You just might WIN!! 

So while you are doing that, Lady GO! GO! and I will be frantically sewing the rest of this quilt…I have 10 more blocks to sew and more pieced sashing to cut…(that’s the fun part!!) 

Have a Special Sunday and Happy Quilting and GOOD LUCK!!~P

  8. Paulette, I'm both impressed and envious.
    The speed with which you were able to cut all of these pieces is unbelievable. So Fast !! ! so efficient ! ! !

    Your finished block make me envious that you can accomplish so much in such a short time.

    My daughter and I have been discussing which die each of us can not live without.
    My first pick was big rag block die,
    her's was the 2.5" strip.
    My next pick would have to be Tumbler,
    her's the 2.5" strip.
    And so it GO!s
    Found you blog several weeks ago and enjoy following your blog.
    Hugs,
    Gerry

  127. I just found your site and I am now a follower. Great tutorial. How clever to crosscut the sewn strips. Would love to win a Go Go!

  128. I'm intrigued -- I have arthritis in my hands/wrists and find rotary cutting really difficult. This GO looks like it would be perfect! I have a question, though -- how difficult is it to turn the handle if one has limited hand strength?
    And yes, I just became a follower.
