Fun times

Since I got my GO cutter on Thursday, I have been busy making blocks....One of my favorite blocks is a star block...and I found these to be quick and easy to make with the die that comes with the GO. They end up being 8 inch blocks...I made these and have about twice as many cut out and ready to sew. I went through some of my scrap tubs and just cut away. It won't take me long to have enough blocks for a queen sized quilt. I will probably add sashing that will not be cut with the GO but that won't take long to cut.

I did more than just sew over the last couple of days. Earlier today we went to Coast Day sponsored by the U of DE. We went early, thankfully, before it started to rain. I pity those who were there later in the day. At least most of the displays were under big tents.

Last night we went to a dinner theater to see "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" presented by Second Street Players in Milford, DE.  This is the community theater to which the Snowman wall hanging is being donated for a raffle (see an earlier post).

I have also been having fun "meeting" new blogging friends through the FALL INTO FALL GIVEAWAY.  It has been a challenge to keep up with all the comments and new blogs that I have been visiting. If I haven't commented on your blog be assured that I have at least looked at your posts.  My computer has been rebelling a little.

Until next time.....

Your blocks look great. It is so fun to see what can be accomplished using the same basic shapes in different ways.

Your blocks are amazing. I hope one day to have a GO! so can cut all the odd pieces of my mother's small scraps into something usable for her. I've entered your fall-into-fall giveaway.

I have been looking at the Go and wondering which dies would be a good start - the geometric sets peak my interest. Great giveaway! susan(at)mathisons(dot)org

we love our Go Cutter, named Buster. I;m finding I'm less likely to throw out bits of fabric because I think - That can be cut on the flower die or used as lamb feet.

I just discovered your blog and have enjoyed reading about your GO. I don't have one, but have wondered if it would be worth the expense. I'll be interested to continue following your experiences with it.

Thanks for your giveaway and the chance to win.
