New Toy

This was my early Christmas present to myself this year, and AccuQuilt Go :)  I've been eyeing them for ages, like many of you I'm sure, and finally made the leap.  I don't have many dies yet but I wanted to play so I went ahead and got started cutting 4.5" strips from scraps the other day.

Judy recently sent me another hefty box of her scraps so I had lots of grey and black/whites on hand.  I first cut strips, then sewed 3 strips together into a panel, then subcut those using the same die into units of (3) 4.5" squares in a row.  The cutter says it can handle 6 layers at a time and it definitely did.

Then these could be rearranged and sewn into nine patches.  I definitely did not need another WIP, but so far I'm enjoying my new toy and glad I got it!

  1. Hurray! Glad to see you purchased one. I only have about a dozen dies and I doubt I will buy too many more. They make cutting so easy!

  2. Oo, fancy! What a nice gift. Merry early Christmas to you :)

  3. That looks like a great tool to have! I know cutting really slows me down, and keeps me from managing my scraps like so many people do. Enjoy!

  4. I have a Sizzix with a few cutting dies. It REALLY saves time!!
