I had the opportunity recently to review the GO! baby cutter – LOVED it! (see all the products at accuquilt.com).
First off – SO easy to use. Right out of the box I was cutting fabric within couple of minutes. You just place your fabric over the die, cover with the clear mat thing, and roll it through the cutter. Voila! You can double stack fabric with no problem.
Secondly – SO portable! We have a family craft night with aunts and cousins once a month. So last minute I decided to make some quilt pieces while I was there and I just grabbed my little Go! Baby cutter and stack of fabric and headed out the door. See – having fun at my aunts house:
Now, the Apple Core Die I received…. my cousin wondered why I was cutting a whole stack of maxi pads…but they’re apple cores!! I can’t imagine cutting pieces with curves like this by hand; trying to get each exact would be a nightmare. Everyone had an opinion on my layout:
Here’s the order we ended up with – the die has built-in matching triangles – so awesome. So each valley or hill is marked in the center, so when you sew them together you line up the marks – how smart and easy is that!?!?
Now of course when I got home the kids ran through my carefully placed arrangement, so it ended up different – oh well. Here is my quilt top sewn together – you just sew one row at a time, then sew all the rows together:
To quilt this one, I just followed either side of the seam on the apple core shape. Love the lines on the back:
And here she is, all folded nice and neat – –
I love the die shape on this quilt and it’s something I NEVER would have attempted without the GO! Baby cutter.
Stay tuned later today to see which other die I got and what I’ve made with it…. think non-sewing project….
