I also hate the cutting part of quilting and would love to cut that time down. ;) I would love to try using the tumbler block like in your review. Thanks for the giveaway!

DianeY said...

I detest cutting so I'd use this for everything I could! Love the drunkards path block & love the tumbler

Kristin said...

Considering the limited time I have to sew anything that saves time is a winner in my book! I love the tumbler block and would love to make a quilt with it...or a new bag, or...

I am taking a class on how to do fabric decoupaged floorcloths and think this will be a lovely way to make some one of a kind floorcloths. I also would love to just use it for some everyday quilted items, i.e. placemats, potholders, table runners, etc. Thanks for the giveaway.

I would love to make a tumbler quilt. So I would love to have a tumbler to use to make one. Thank you fr the chance to win.

Sel's Quilting Blog said...

How would I use it? How wouldn't I use it?

But to start with, I'd get on that large hexagon quilt I've been planning for a very long time!

And then I'd loan it to my friend Jenn who's also dying for one of these and lives just down the road, and she'd make an applecore quilt with it!

ann said...

I'm thinking I might be more inclined to try some appliqué if the finicky part of cutting out all the wee bits was made abit easier. Thanks for the chance to win Cristin.

Jennifer said...

I have entered about 100 of these go! baby giveaways. I'm dying for one. I am the worst cutter. I would use mine for, well, EVERYTHING, because I would choose basic rectangle and HST shapes.

M-R said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I'd love to use the 1/2 square triangle die cut -- love the idea of not having to trim corners

epban said...

I Plead Quilty! said...

I just made my first HST quilt and really love the look of it, but it sure was a LOT of cutting - the squares, marking the middle, cutting them apart after sewing down both sides, trimming the tags once they were pressed... I would love to use this baby (see what I did there? teehee) to make many more!

Being a busy mum I would get soooooo many more quilts done with such a lovely little gadget!! I'm addicted to hexies so that would save me a LOT of time and those tumblers YUM!

Bibil said...

Yeaaaah! If this giveaway is available to international readers... Then I think I would mostly use the basic shapes such as the circles, they are always so complicated to cut perfectly! I use circles to make the eyes of bird-shaped bibs (and angry birds-shaped bibs too) :-)
But I would love to discover other shapes as well! You are so lucky to have these fabric cutters at home!
I am also a huge fan of this blog, you just seem to have an endless stream of creativity... And I signed up for the 22 patterns.

Adelaide and Harleigh Morris said...

I'm SUPER jealous of the Go-baby owners I know. I'm soooo geometrically challenged that I make my husband cut my quilt pieces or they turn out all funky! One of these would save me a lot of "I get to go hunting/buy this/cook me this because you owe me for X's quilt"! HAHA! As for the giveaway, I like the go-value die set, the 3.5" tumbler, and the Hexagon 2",3", 5"! my email is sunbsnow at yahoo dot com.

Thanks so much for the opportunity!

If I were to win this cutter, it wouldn't be for me but for my mother. While I do quilt and would love to have one, my mom has trouble cutting due to her arthritis. I happened to be looking online for something for her birthday (Oct 23rd) I came across this site. I'm currently laid off and back in school (nursing school) and I can't afford such a nice gift. She would get alot of use with an AccuQuilt Go!

At Christmas, I'm going to my Mom's house. She's got a HUGE stash of fabric - quite a bit of it has been inherited over the years, plus everything she's acquired for herself. I think my first use for something like this would be helping her manage my inheritance (aka, her stash).

I would love to try it for the tumbler quilt. Thanks for the opportunity!
