Another Accuquilt Giveaway!

Go to Ala Mode Fabric to enter to win an Accuquilt Go. It is an awesome little machine. I am trying diligently to win one for my mother-in-law. She is the one who taught me how to quilt (I already knew how to sew). She has terrible arthritis in her hands, and I know this would help her so much. She loves quilting, and I would love to give her one to show her how much I appreciate her teaching me to quilt. So, here's to luck, and luck to you entering this giveaway.

First finished quilt

This is the my first finished quilt. I started this before my second grandson was born. Then I put it away. I finally picked it back up and finished it. Yea!

It may not be as good as some of the quilts you all make, but I am proud of it, and most grandson loves it.

I am now working on a lap sized quilt for my oldest grandson using the Day and Night pattern by Eleanor Burns. It is turning out really nice. When finished, I will post a pic.

Bedding for my grandson

I just wanted to post the bedding my daughter and I made for her third son on the way. We sewed our little hands off!!!!! I am so proud of her because this was the first time she had sewn. She did the diaper stacker all by herself and sewed the pillows together. I did the rest of the sewing and the embroidery on the pillow. I think it turned out really cute.

Rekindled Love

I have just a rekindled an old love of mine.....quilting. I had put it down for such a long time. My main reason was that I HATE cutting out quilts. I love sewing them, but the cutting made my hands and back hurt.

Well, fast forward to now...I own a beautiful Accuquilt Go. Now I don't have to worry about sore hands or back. If you don't know about the Accuquilt Go, let me enlighten you. For you scrapbookers out there, it is very similar to a Sizzix or Cuttlebug machine. The machine opens up like the cuttlebug and you have dies similar to the Sizzix machine. You lay your fabric on the dies, place your cutting mat on top, crank it through the machine, and you have perfectly cut quilt shapes in seconds. No more slipping rulers and quilt shapes that don't match up right when sewing. You can cut up to 4-5 layers of fabric, depending on the type of fabric you are using. I have to say, it is fabulous. I just recently received my GO, and I only have the die that came with the machine, so I can't say that I have a tremendous amount of experience at this time to give you. However, I look forward to collecting ALL the dies and then I will be happy to show you the wonderful things the GO can do.

You can check out the Accuquilt GO on their website.

Let me know what you think.
