Accuquilt Go! Baby

While looking through the latest American Quilter magazine (Jan 2012) I came upon an ad for a giveaway for the Accuquilt GO! baby. You can register at www.quiltviews.com/go-baby-giveaway It comes with two dies and two cutting mats. Value ~$250. I'm bringing this up for those of you who are interested in trying out this method of cutting templates, and it seems to be rage lately. By signing up you have a chance at winning one so you can try it for free, which for me is the only way I'll ever have one. Interestingly enough in the same magazine is an article on projects to do with the leftover fabric after cutting the dies (or what you can do with leftovers after cutting applique pieces).

For those of you that do machine embroidery, KennysKreations  combines the available cutting dies with some of their available embroidery designs to make a fantastic Rose of Sharon quilt if you would like to see what the possibilities are for these dies! I have no affiliation with either of these companies, just love to pass on information to all our sewers out there. Those that don't have an embroidery machines, you can still get great ideas for appliqu├ęd quilts using the stitches on our Janome Horizon 7700.
