GO Give-Away Mania

I confess. I'm LUSTING for a GO! fabric cutter. All over the blogosphere, bloggers are posting photos of their new GO! cutters and the quilts they are making with their new cutting tool. In our elementary schools, we had a similar machine that teachers used to cut paper letters and shapes for their classrooms. Guess who was in charge of ordering the new dies and servicing the machine? (Media staff:)

 Several weeks ago at our week long stitch-in, Jane brought her big Accuquilt studio fabric cutter for us to use.

Jane gave us a demonstration on how to work the machine (easy, peasy) and we began cutting:)
It was super easy and fun to take fabric left-over from other projects and cut my own 2 and 1/2 inch strips for "jelly rolls" using my fabric stash. 

Gingham Rose (love that fabric) and Chelsea Lane (Pat Sloan design by P & B Fabrics) strips

are now cut and ready to GO! for a new project.

I'd love to have my own Go! I'd love to get the rag quilt die to cut flannel and batting for our guild charity quilts. There are several blogs that are giving away a Go! It seems daily a new give-away is popping up.  I know. This is hard to believe. Visit these blogs, tell them I sent you and enter to win!

Quilt Hollow  until Thursday, August 26th. Mary has a great blog. It's one that I read regularly.

Sweet P Quilting until Tuesday, August 31st

Freckled Whimsy until Friday August 27th at 9 pm central time.

Jackie at Canton Village Quiltworks (great blog, webstore, and podcasts) through midnight Eastern Time on Thursday,  August 26.

I'll update other give-aways as I find them on the side-bar of my blog. Good luck, friends!

OH good luck!! I hope someone in our quilty group wins so we can share. I would definitely share. In fact, I'd even let y'all cut my stash for me ;)

Just a ton to be given away lately...sounds like such fun! I think the GO would be great to cut round or awkward shapes, too.
