go, Go, GO!

Oh yeah, I've been playing! Several weeks ago an amazing product was dropped off at my doorstep. You may have heard of this already (there's been a few mentioned here in blog-land) but that's because we really are that excited about it! And you should be too because there are so many things you can use this little 'baby' for.


I have to confess that I shamelessly blog-lifted this picture and I can't even tell you where from. (SORRY!) It's just that when I got my GO!baby I tore into it so quick and started cutting that I completely forgot to take some pix along the way. But can you blame me? This is what I was making:



I have had this idea for a LOOOOOONG time. But even the thought of cutting out those hexs was scaring me. Then came the GO!baby. I had those hexies cut in a few minutes. Seriously. I was stitching them together in no time. OH no, not by hand! I stacked them and layered them and stitched around for a fun raw-edge look. I took my quilt layout from this talented lady. I LOVE IT! I even attached my binding raw. Yes, raw. But of course I forgot to photo it up close. Eh. We'll talk about that another day.

Obviously I got the hexagon die. I also chose the tumbler die- And by die I mean I am DYING to get started on that one!  Also, the 2 1/2" strip maker. Um, how much did I love this one when I was making that scrappy binding? TONS!!! Besides I am simply anti-bias binding because I hate all the folding and cutting- NOT. ANY. MORE. Piece of cake with this 'baby' But enough about my fun- ON to more important things.

Did you know you can get FREE! patterns. Uh, what are you waiting for! There are some super cute and fun pattern in there for quilt projects and BLOCKS.

And that's not all, oh no that's not all. If you've been around blog-land and seen this before then you know what is coming. Stay tuned!

Love the Hexagon quilt and so clever to use the raw edge technique with it! Hexagons even I could do (with a GO! at least).

I really like this quilt. Well done. I love something cute, busy even, against a soothing white. Does it have a name? Or did I miss it?
