…IN FACT…she is cutting LOTS of EDGES! For the last few days Lady GO! GO! and I have been getting to know one another…I must say she is wonderful…friendly, accurate, easy to use, and she produces the move wonderful things! …
These are the three dies that I picked out from pages of selections!-The quarter square 4 inch finished triangles, the 2 1/2” strip cutter and the 1 1/2” strip cutter. The Lady GO! GO! comes with a 4 1/2” square die, 2 1/2 “ square and the 2 1/2” half square triangle.
…with the help of these dies I have got a lot of options to cut different sizes and shapes….
On Saturday I started the Christmas Sew Along and Lady GO~ GO! jumped right in and helped…She cut out the borders lickity split-
Here is the border fabric stretched out on top of the cutting board..foam side up.
I put the cutting mat on top to protect the wheel from the blades that are hiding in the foam…and then I cranked the wheel…
Within seconds I have got 6 strips the perfect size for my border!!
and with very little wastage!
DONE and the flying geese- 160 triangles in minutes…and she didn’t break a sweat…unlike myself!!
And look NO wasted fabric!!
Binding, you say…she’s done it!! I tell you…I have got my feet up…and Lady GO! GO! is crying for more…I can see I am going to have to buy some more dies…just to keep her happy! :O) Hey, if it worked for you…it will probably work for my husband!! Stay tuned for more Lady GO!GO! fun!
