Go! Baby

Embarrassing, but true... about a year ago I won an AccuQuilt Go! Baby machine, and I haven't used it yet.

It isn't that I don't love it... I do! And I'm so grateful to the AccuQuilt folks for donating prizes to the 2011 HMQG Quilt Market and Festival meet-ups! But winning the Go! Baby was the easy part... picking out dies to buy was the hard part! So I kept putting it off.

AccuQuilt Go Baby

Last week I finally took a good look at the available dies, and picked out a couple to start with

AccuQuilt Dies

Rose of Sharon (on the bottom) I bought to make pretty flower hair clips for my sweet little girl.

The hexagon die was inspired by Kati's hexagon demonstration in the Sewing Summit Shapes and Angles class.

And the two square dies (to cut 5", 4.5", and 2.5") I hope will help me cut through my scrap bins. I see a long Thanksgiving weekend ahead full of movies and working through my scrap bin!

Any dies you love?  Any suggestions for the next dies I should buy?

We have the hexagon and circle dies. We are doing a share with our local bee so it gets a lot of use. Its one of those things that gets a lot of use for an hour or two and then sits around. Tell me how you like the other ones! Congrats on last years win, too!

I like cutting with the dies. I have a six inch rectangle and 3.5" squares. I have not used it much lately. I need to get back into the groove.
