... so now it's MY time



to host a Go! Baby giveaway!!!

You might remember that I was fortunate to be able to try out this nifty tool, and tell you about it in this post. Now you have a chance to win one of these fabric cutters, 3 dies of your choice and the cutting boards to go with them. Please leave a comment on this post before september 14th and tell me what die and pattern you would like to give a go. It will be shipped to you for free by the lovely team from AqquQuilt, worldwide. So you are ALL invited to play along.

The picture above shows the Go! Baby tumbler die paired up with my 30's stash of mostly green, blue, purple, yellow and blacks.

Last night I washed this summers fabric finds to complement my tumbler wip. After putting these through the Go! Baby they are ready to be mixed in on the design wall. There's also quite a few charm squares already cut and waiting to join the party...

I look forward to mix in more of these blacks and greens...

So, what do you think? Would you like a chance to play? The dies comes in many shapes: including tumblers, half square triangles, hourglass dies, squares and more. Here's a link to free patterns to give you more ideas:

I'll draw a lucky winner on sept 14th! Please make sure I'll be able to e-mail you and get your address and choice of 3 dies. If not, I'll have to make a second drawing.

Best of luck!

I've always wanted to make a grandmother's flower garden quilt, but the thought of cutting all those hexagons scares me, so I'd love the hexagon die.

Thanks for the great contest

Clare said...

Me! It's mine! Don't laugh! I've decided that 2012 will see me "trying" to make a proper quilt, or "trying" appliqué

The dies I'd choose are the Hexagons, the Half Square 1" Triangles and the Stems and Leaves.

I would like the hexagon, the drunkard's path, and the circle dies.

Thanks for a chance!

Lucy said...

That 30s stash is yummy!
I would chose the Rose of Sharon, Go! Circle and Go! Drunkard's Path. I'd really love to make some more complex quilts and I'm sure the Go! Baby would make it so much easier :)

I would love to win the Go Baby! I have seen so many beautiful quilts made using this handy little machine, I'm a little green with envy.

Denise said...

Ohhh, I would love to win one of these. Tumblers, hexagons, and HST are the dies I would love, especially the tumblers, I have a ton of scraps I would like to make a huge tumbler quilt out of, but the thought of cutting all of those makes me queasy! LOL

Lisa said...

I would love to make a tumbler quilt too! I love them but I've never made one because I am not sure I could cut them accurately enough - a Go! Baby would make it so quick and easy.

tpott said...

I've had the Go Baby on my wish list for way too long, maybe today I'll be lucky. My choice of dies are 1) Bountiful Baskets, 2) Rose of Sharon, 3) Fall Medley. Thank you for hosting this wonderful giveaway. ;>

Hasapis Family said...

I love the half square, holiday accessories and fall medley...there are too many to choose from!! Thanks for the chance to win!

Lee Ann said...

I've been wanting one of these babies for a long time! Your tumbler quilt is looking awesome!

I've been hankering to do a hexagon quilt; but, am dreading the cutting process. The Go! Baby with the hexagon die would make it a lot easier!

I've also been wanting the circle and tumbler dies.

Thank you for a chance to win one of these babies! :-)

Donna~~ said...

I've always wanted to give a Go a try! I would choose hexagons, circles, and applecore (I think)!

Lynn Brown said...

I like your tumblers quilt so far! Hexagons, Tumblers, and Drunkards Path.

gatheredthreads said...

Wonderful! Thank you for the opportunity. I would choose the strip cutter, the drunkard's path, and 2" squares.

Wendy D. P. said...

I would love the HST, hexagons and tumbler dies - I've always wanted to make a hexagon flower quilt - but all that cutting is very daunting!

Jenny said...

thanks for a chance! id love a cutter for those persnickety to cut pieces like tumblers, drunkards path and apple core!

Brenda said...

Your tumblers are wonderful. I'd like to give one of these "toys" a try! I love the idea of hexie and tumbler dies.

Karin said...

Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Since I make basic quilts I would chose dies like the 5 in. square, 6 1/2 in. triangles, and the 4 1/2 inc. square triangles. I would like to try the pattern Summer Sensation Sampler.

I really hope I win this! I'd love the quarter square 4" triangles, the star points, and the 3 1/2"tumbler! My daughter is 9 and she wants this so bad as cutting is the hardest part of sewing for her!

JanetK said...

I'd really like one of these! All the tumblers are so fun - plus I'd like an apple core and a drunkard's path die to go with!

Laila L S said...

Thanks for the chance to win! Please pick my name, lol.
Jeg har som flere andre prøvd lykken flere steder i håp om å vinne en slik. Kanskje er det endelig min tur. Hvis jeg vinner vil jeg ha Fun Flower, Hearts og Strip cutter 2 1/2 inch.

Nancy said...

I would really love to win one of these thanks for the chance.

Tamie said...

I would love a Go Baby. I'd go for the squares, quarter square triangles and half square triangles- I think. Thanks for the chance.

elle said...

It would be nice if this was 'my time'! lol These would be so accurate. Triangles would be practical, circles precise and feathers fun! And thern there are all the applique shapes.

stitchinpenny said...

I love the 5 inch square die since I can make lots of things from it. I made a quilt for a great nephew last year that was diamonds or chevrons of light and then dark and I would like to make a little girl option perhaps with pale yellow and pale pink since my daughter gave me some great fabric in that palette.

Anna F said...

Your tumbler quilt is looking very, very nice. My long-wished-for dies are the apple core, hexagons, and tumbler. Thank you!

Patchwork and Play said...

Great giveaway! Circles and hexies would be great dies to have!

kaschmir said...

Oooh, I'd love to win this! My choice of dies would be 2.5 in strip cutter, half square triangles and hexagons I guess. But they are all so lovely. Thanks for the opportunity.

Miss_Oakden said...

I would love to win this. Your blog was the very first one I started reading when I first started quilting almost 3 years ago. I actually still remember where I was when I discovered your site! I sat there for ages going through old posts. It still makes me smile when I see your posts!!

Xx

Cille said...

The very first quilt I fell in love with was a tumbler quilt but I never made one. Lots of other quilts though. Maybe it's time now? Thanks for the opportunity to win. If I am the lucky lady I would go for the tumbler, the hearts and the half square triangles.

Janet said...

Love your quilt. I'd just LOVE to win a Go! Baby!!!!! I'd pick half square triangles 3 inch, the tumbler, or the feathers....so hard to pick! Thanks for the chance.

LizA. said...

Love, love, love your tumbler quilt. I would love to beagle to share this with my weekly quilting group. The 3" tumbler, diamonds and half square triangles are what I would choose.

Shirley said...

Your quilt is looking great. I would really like the hexagon die if I was lucky enough to win! Thanks for the chance. :)

Kate said...

I'd love the 1/2 square triangle dies, and I think there are many patterns I'd love to try. The list keeps getting longer by the day really. Oops!
Just think how much faster it'd go with a cutter.
Also, I love the pattern you used with those fabrics--such vibrant colours!

Margaret said...

Wow! thanks for the chance to win. I would pick the 6" tumbler, the 4 inch triangle and one of the diamonds...
love your tumbler quilt WIP.

elizabeth said...

Hope you pick my numberv: ). I would pick hexagons, circle, and 5 inch squares.

pinsandneedles said...

Yes I would love to win a Go! Baby. Oh the quilts I could make! I would choose the Drunkard's Path die, Circles, and Hexagons. Thanks for a chance!

Maxine said...

I have just the spot for the Go Baby....I would like the circle, hexagons, and rose of sharon

Tricia C. said...

It's been fun watching all the different projects appear on the internet with this wonderful little machine. I think I'd stay simple with the triangle die so that I could make a classic Perfect Triangle to Go quilt. Thanks for the chance to win!

This would be great for making hexagons, I've had a hard time getting them all exactly the same.

Debra said...

I have been trying to win one of these forever. Please end my suffering!

Fabric Fanatic said...

I'd love the dies needed to make the eight pointed star block...3" finished half-square triangle, parallelogram, and 4 and 3 quarter square. Thanks for offering this!

Sarah said...

Ooh, awesome! I'd love the tumbler, applecore & drunkard's path dies...all designs I love but don't have the attention span to cut ;) Your 30's tumblers look cute!

Anne D said...

I really want to make a tumbler quilt. I have made a small tumbler table runner but could not face cutting out enough tumblers for a quilt.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Eli said...

I really hope that 78 is my lucky number :-) I've only just started quilting but I would love to try my hands at both tumblers and hexagons. Ambitious, I know. Well maybe with the Go! Baby I could.

Loveday's Day said...

I would love to win this. I would love to have the circle die 2", 3" and 5" circles, the signature block and the half square 1" triangles.

wintunancy said...

Oh my! Wouldn't this be fun, except for trying to pick which dies to have...so many choices. Thanks for the chance to own one of these.

Florence said...

Thank you to propose this give away !
I like all the die with snowflake !!

Vicki Freeman said...

Pick me! I have a long list of Go! dies that I need! :)

kbzelazny said...

Your quilt is beautiful! I think I would most like to try the triangles for making HSTs. Thanks for the chance to win!

Jules said...

i would love the circle, hexagon and the tumblers!
because i can't cut a circle!!, and your tumbler blocks look awesome!. and i love a hexie! thanks for the chance!.

Tracy O said...

thanks for the chance to win!

Oops-Lah said...

Yay, another chance to win a go baby! I probably would want the HST the tumblers and circles.

SewLindaAnn said...

I would love to start with the tumbler die. I saw a pattern on a blog where a circle (a la dresden) was made and appliqued on. That looked like fun. I'm sure I could come up with 2 other dies I wanted too!

Heather A said...

I read somewhere that a combination of two dies (I can't remember which ones) could be used and the combined pieces are perfect for making flying geese. That's what I would most like to make. A Flying Geese quilt. And circles. I'd love the circles die. I've put off making a circle quilt because the cutting would be so tedious.

Kirsten said...

Oh wow! What a great giveaway! I really want to make a drunkard's path quilt - but the pieces seem very time consuming to cut without a Go! Baby and that is the quilt I will do first if I ever won this wonder machine!

Sue SA said...

Wow thank you for giving us the chance to win a Go Cutter! The dies I would love are a; 3 1/2" tumbler, half square triangle 4" finished and a quarter square triangle 4 " finshed. You can track me down at my blog; motherpatchwork.blogspot.com IF I win! In the meantime, happy quilting Sue SA

TrinaB said...

I'm so excited about your giveaway! I want to make a tumbler quilt, but have been reluctant to cut out all the "tumbler" pieces.
I would love to have the
Tumbler 6 1/2"
Drunkards path 7"
Circles 2" 3" 5"'

Thank you for such a Great Giveaway (:

natalie christensen said...

I would choose tumbler,apple core,and hexagon. Thanks for the giveaway!

Quie said...

Wow what a giveaway!!
I would love to win a Go!Baby - and if I did I would chose the "Carefree Numbers" and "Carefree Alphabet set" because it would make my baby quilts so easy to make :)

Sadie said...

I would love to make a quilt incorporating circles, so the circles die is definitely on my list!
Thanks for the chance to win :-)

Lauren @ Craft My Life Away said...

Ooo a giveaway!

I would love the snowflakes or 8 pointed stars. Those would be awesome for making Christmas projects.

Thanks!

kerrypuddy said...

I'd love to get my hands on one of these baby's! I like the look of the apple core die but I'm not sure I'm up to curves yet so I'd probably choose some nice simple ones - especially the tumbler!

Mimi said...

Please let it be me! I would so love to try the circle die, and the tumbler die and the hexie die and ... well you get the idea. I had a blast with the Eleson machine when my kids were in school making stuff for their classrooms and want to get my hands on one of these babies.

Nancy D. said...

I'm liking those tumblers more and more. Hexagons, HSTs, Funky Flower - so many great choices. Thanks for sharing!

Peaceful Piecer said...

I would love a Go Baby! Thanks for a chance to win!

Michele Bilyeu said...

Ooooh, I can only have one if I win one, so count me in! I'd choose the hexagons, the half square triangles, and either circles or some cute kidish cutout..hard to choose!

Annie said...

I'd love a chance to win a Go Baby! My choice of dies would be Drunkards Path, Tumblers and half square ! !/2" finished triangle.

Thanks for the giveaway!

Annie

Monique said...

Your quilts are lovely, wish I were so talented. I enjoy seeing your blog and all of the many quilts you made. Contests are so much fun.....would love to win the Baby Go cutter with three dies, stars, hearts or tumblers. Thanks.
rockyroad@sasktel.net

Gari said...

As you can see I am very behind in blog reading. But I would love to win a Baby GO. I think I would like the winding ways die. I don't think I will ever cut those pieces with my rotery cutter but I would with a die.

Ruth said...

I need this; I really do. I'd get the rickrack, the strip one (2.5") and probably the tumbler.
I never win anything, ever, at all, ever. Pretty please?
I'm so pathetic.

Marianne said...

I would love, love, love a wGo cutter! I would love the sunbonnet sue, tumbler, and the funky flower dies. thanks for the giveaway! Marianne handquilter146@hotmail.com

Jan said...

I would love to try this for some new inspiration!
And I would love the tumbler die or the hexagon!
Soooo fun!

What a wonderful give away! And nice to see you back blogging! To win a Go! Baby must be wonderful. The ideas overflow my head, but I would first try the dies with the Cat and the Bat for this Halloween quilt that is on my wish list for a long time. After that the reindeers to make this Christmas quilt, that would be perfect... And of course a basic: GO! quarter square-4" finished Triangle (8 triangles). And if I´m not the happy winner? Maybe my husband will be so nice to bring me one from the States?

SewWhatsNew said...

This is really nice. I would love to win too. I like the half square triangles, circles, and hexagon dies. Thanks.

Karen said...

Thankyou for the chance to win a Go!Baby. I would love the hexagon, circle and drunkard's path dies- the ones that are fiddly to cut! Karen

nanann said...

I think every time I look at their dies I think I'd choose something different -- totally depends on my mood!

I think today after looking at a wonderful diamond quilt I'd totally go with a diamond die -- I can't imagine trying to cut them out the old fashioned way!

woolywoman said...

Tumblers, for sure. I have tried cutting them with a cardboard template, but it all got too wonky too fast. I give most of my quilts away, so I'd love to make a single tumbler out of each fabric I use and have them as a keepsake. What a fun quilt that would be!

I think the leaves would be fum to play with, and then maybe a 3" circle for yo yo's and dots.... Thanks for hosting a giveaway!
