You Go! Baby!

A few weeks ago, Accuquilt generously sent me a Go!Baby cutter, with three dies of my choice.I chose the tumbler, hexagon and parallelogram, shapes that take a bit more time to cut than squares and rectangles.
As soon as it arrived, I enlisted the help of a cute little assistant. It was easy enough for her to use and she has had a lot of fun with it on several occasions.
The first project I tried was to cut hexagons, initially for an Aurifil thread giveaway. I stacked three layers of squares on the smallest hexagon.
 Some of you have already seen my hexagon flower.
Here is the completed project.
Then I tried a hexagon pencil case, designed by one of my favorite designers, Amy from During Quiet Time.
Amazingly, the large hexagon on each end of the pencil case was exactly the same size as the largest hexagon on the die cut.
Gotta love nice coincidences like that!
(Yes, I blatantly "borrwed" Amy's cute photo ideas with the pencil and eraser...)

Finally, I tried the tumbler die cut. This made good use of the fabric, with not too much waste. It successfully cut through three layers of fabric. It can cut through more layers, but I only used three. Once in a while, I had to clip a thread here or there but mostly the die cleanly cut through the fabric.

My brother's daughter is going to Texas A&M. I found some Aggie fabric at Fat Quarter Shop (they have others too!). So again, a chance to do two things with one project: test the tumbler die cut and make a quilt for Elizabeth's graduation. I used a pattern found in a magazine for inspiration (Best Quilts for Kids, quilt designed and made by Joanie Holton and Melanie Greseth), and made some changes. The designers had strips made from squares and I decided to change the dimensions of the quilt and use strips of tumbler blocks instead. I sewed four tumblers together and then cut off each end to make a rectangular strip.

It is a simple quilt made from rectangles of the Texas A&M fabric, along with strips of solids and tumblers in a random fashion--the same number of units in each row, just rearranged for variety. The added benefit was that there were few seams to match up!

My original thought was that if Elizabeth isn't crazy about having a Texas A&M quilt, then maybe her boyfriend would like it. But then I found this fabric for the back. She is a business major with a fashion merchandising emphasis. Perfect. But it pretty much guarantees that Fred will not want this quilt.

  8. Something people don't know about me? Hmm.. well, it usually surprises my friends when I mention that I get nervous/insecure/unsure in social situations when I don't know anyone, because I'm pretty good at "hiding" it (and I'm GREAT at talking! haha)

  40. Few people realize that I cannot knit. Most people assume that since I'm crafty, I can knit. But I can't. Also, few people know how I hate making phone calls to people I don't know (including making reservations at restaurants). But I'd sure love to win a Baby GO! and would even make a phone call for that. And learn how to knit, as necessary.

  44. Actually, most people don't know that I sew as much as I do. I don't talk about it much because I do not personally know a single soul who does sew and I get funny looks if I say anything about sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  45. The green m&ms are my favorite but I will eat all the colors even the ugly brown ones.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh, geez, what could I tell that most people wouldn't know about me? I guess I might be a little obsessed by genealogy. Since I'm a historian, this is frowned upon by my colleagues (it's just a repeating of facts and not an interpretation of what historical events really meant). And all my "regular" friends think it's sort of boring and academic. lol Thank goodness for my obsession with quilty goodness -- at least there's one crowd I can depend on to accept me! :)

    Gill! Webbed toes? So interesting. Lucy, I was so with you for a long time! Jo, you are a genius!

    We can keep on the food theme, shall we? I hate cherry tomatoes becasue they are like eating little eyeballs. Now, I like grapes a whole lot. I don't kow why they're not eyeballs, but they're not.

  50. Last night I dreamed I had a Go! Baby, but for some reason I was just using the dies without putting them through the cutter, and I kept cutting my hand. You know how strange some dreams can be... :)

  51. Thanks to you and Accuquilt for an amazing giveaway..I would so love to win one! Something about me? People think I`m super confident but I`m not really. I`m quite insecure - especially about what I create. Thanks again!

  52. Please, please, please pick me....this worked for another lady who didn't win in two years; maybe it will work for me too! I have been so disappointed and read all these blogs that are doing so much with them! I would truly sew love to have one to create with! Thank you so much for having this giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hmm, something about me no one knows. I can't tell you THAT, but I can tell you something few people know about me. In 1994, I had a recipe selected to be featured on a local, half-hour TV show. I had to prepare all the ingredients and be ready to put it all together while on the air with a man and woman co-host team. Nervous? I'll say! But I did fine, and my artichoke-rice salad turned out fabulously. I have a VCR tape of that show, and it makes me laugh to look back and see my big hair! Thanks for the chance to win your giveaway.

  80. Something that not many people know about me?

    Uh, I sometimes try to think of what I'd do if a crisis happened right at that moment.

    eg. I'm in line for a teller at the bank, and I think of what I'd do if people came in with guns and tried to rob the bank.

    I figure it's good to be safe...and nothing's happened yet!

  96. I'm so super picky about checking the quality of things I buy at the store that I'll check nine or ten of the same items to check for scratches, marks, loose threads/stitches, faulty zippers, snaps or stains before I can pick one to buy. I know, it's a sickness. But at least it eases my mind and I don't end up having to make a return trip to the store to exchange the item for another one.

  97. I have to eat two M&Ms at a time for "balance." If there's only one left in the bag, it must be divided evenly in half.

  124. Yes! There's still I chance I can win one of these fab cutters! Cause I'd love to make a tumbler quilt with the 3,5" tumblers, but I'd hate to cut them all by hand ...
    Please send it as far away as possible: to me!

  125. Thanks so much for a chance. I'm pretty boring, I guess lots of people don't know that I used to be a nurse. Have a great weekend.

  126. I figure if I sign up for enough of these, I'll win at some point...so Pick Me!! (thanks for the chance either way ;)

    Something most don't know....I'm a bit antisocial. I'd much rather sit home and read or sew or do anything other than go out. I'm a huge homebody and fine with it...much to my bf's dismay!

  127. Something that most people wouldn't know about me is that today, Oct. 4th (the day you pick a winner for the You Go! Baby), is the 20th anniversary of the date my family moved to our current home. It's been a great 20 years, but, goodness, do the children grow up quickly!!!!

  130. Hmmmm, most people would not know (or care?) that I am afraid of clowns. But I would learn to like them if it would increase my chances in this giveaway!

  139. Let's see, things few people know about me:

    I have never broken a bone, and, not wishing to do so, refuse to engage in any sporting activity (especially skiing)! Also, I'm insanely good at Wheel of Fortune type games where you have to guess the phrase with some of the letters missing.

  140. I suppose my husband knows this, but I can only fall asleep laying on my right side. If I start on my left side, I keep thinking 'you should turn over'. Is that weird? ;)

  143. Baths give me the heebie jeebies. I don't understand wanting to sit in your own dirty water. That especially goes for kiddos. Ick!

  144. I may be a vegetarian but sometimes I'll smell something like grilled chicken and I momentarily think about trying it. Then I come to my senses. But most people don't know that my vegetarianism can be hard at times.
