Design Wall Monday - December 27, 2010


I bought myself the Accuquilt GO cutter as a Christmas present to myself and ordered the large tumbler die at the same time. I was able to pick up the GO on Christmas Eve and cut this quilt out the same day. All rows are sewn but still working on sewing the rows together.

My stash of red/white and blue fabrics is definitely depleated but had enough of 12 different fabrics to make this quilt. I doubt I have anything that will make appropriate borders for this but I don't mind fabric shopping when I have a specific mission.

Though we didn't get dumped on snow wise we did get a respectible amount yesterday, maybe five inches. Since the roads are all covered and there is nowhere that we HAVE to be today it will probably just be a good day to stay in and stay warm.

5 inches of snow is a great reason to stay in a sew! Nice self-gifting there. (my favorite kind)!

I'm in love with tumbler quilts! Enjoy your new prize possession, the GO! cutter. Buyer beware: It can become addicting. Ask me how I know. LOL

Our snow all melted, but we have more predicted this week. I thought about getting the Go-Baby for myself since it is smaller, but I got my other new toy (Bernina Quilt Table) so I didn't want to push the self-bought gifties too much.

I too have looked at the tumbler block as a great reason to have any size go cutter. But, I've got so many ideas I really don't need to buy another gadget to create. We drove home from MD before the snow hit there. It was worse when got to Richmond area. But, not all that bad. Makes a beautiful scene this morning though.

Didn't take you much time to put the GO to work. What other templates did Santa bring with it? I'm sure we'll be seeing lots more GO work in days to come.

Very fun quilt! Enjoy the Go and the snow. It's nice to have a reason to not go anyplace!
