Lady GO! GO! is Cutting Edge….

image …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!!

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!

  10. I'm staying tuned to how you make the flying geese. I don't have a GO! yet, but I can always get the ruler if it makes it easier.
    Love your haul from the garage sale. You did good. Hope you make Sue's qal in September because it was fun.

  11. What dies are you GOing to acquire next?

    I've heard that some people mark the outline of the cutter with a sharpie marker. Is it hard to see where the cutter is within the foam?

  12. Thanks Paulette!! Just entered at Sew Many Ways- maybe I'll win!! Looks like an amazing machine!! I'll be back tomorrow to check out the Flying Geese Ruler!:) Have a great night!

  13. Hooieee, looks like you're having a lot of fun playing with your new BFF?

    Shameless plug/boast coming up. If anyone reads this comment, pop over to my blog to see what Paulette made for me. It's so wonderful I want the whole world to see.
