If I Win The Lottery…

I need to make at least three baby quilts in the next few months…maybe more!!  I love personalizing them with baby names or cute little sayings…and wouldn’t it be nice to throw on a teddy bear or a dinosaur?

If I should win the lottery between now and the time I start these quilts I would definitely buy a Silhouette Fabric Cutter!!  Have you seen how slick these machines are?…They make the GO! Fabric Cutter look obsolete and archaic…and expensive in comparison!  silhouette-cameo-3t_01-xl

The Silhouette Fabric Cutter cuts out lettering, graphics and cute little motifs ready for applique in a jiffy… we’re talking SECONDS!  And the price of the motif is…(are you sitting down?)…only 99 CENTS or less!!  Yup…peanuts!   And every month new motifs are added to the collection…many of which are FREE!


I mean REALLY how cute would a baby boy quilt be with footballs and baseballs sprinkled here and there all over the quilt!  You can size your motifs too…you aren’t stuck with just ONE size!

And look at how sweet a simple quilt can be simply by adding a name…and a couple of flowers!  Ahhhhdorable!  This little girl will be the envy of all the other kids in her play group!


I know, the machine sounds too good to be true!  The initial price is around $300 for the machine…but if you have won the lottery why WOULDN’T you buy it?  I mean really…you’ve got millions at your fingertips…what’s $300?

Now if you’ll excuse me…I’m off to buy some Lottery Tickets…you just never know! :o))

Have a Thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!


  1. I haven't seen that one yet. Wonder how it compares to the new Brother scanner/cutter machine. With the Brother, you can scan in anything and it will cut for you. It's about $500 though, but there is no purchasing designs to use in it. (I think) I am waiting to will the lottery too! LOL!

  2. I think you should get your husband to buy you one with all the wealth he is accumulating from selling stuff on Craigslist. They are a little cheaper on

    I want one of those too!

  3. I like the cutters that are computerized, nice to be able to make your own designs to cut out, would be fun.


  4. I wonder if it cuts traditional quilt shapes? Now that would really be convenient!

  5. You are really a "wonder" !! I just think you are one terrific lady and probably were a top-notch teacher too ! I feel lucky that you share so much of yourself with us, your blog"groupies" Thank YOU !!

  6. Wow! This looks great. I just bought a serger so maybe I'll just take a little peek at the cutter. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I have the Brother Scan n Cut. I don't have to purchase cartridges with designs. I can scan any image into the machine or dowload images via a USB or use their built-in designs and the machine will cut it.

    It cuts fabric, paper and recently I saw a demonstration where they cut fondant into shapes needed for cupcake and cake decorations.

    It's an amazing machine.

  8. I think we all have ideas of what we would do if we win the lottery, this looks good bit I am not too good with gadgets etc
