A Week of Giveaways Day 5: Fabric Die Cutting With the Go!

I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.
–Sara Teasdale, The Philosopher

Don't get too excited. I'm not giving away a Go! Fabric Cutting Machine {although I wish I were}. But it is almost as good. For today's giveaway in my week-long celebration I'm offering up some Go! cutting to one lucky winner.

Here's how it works: you send me your fabric and I'll cut it for you and send it back. I'm willing to cut whatever you'd like, up to one full quilt. The dies I have are pictured below {for more information, click on a thumbnail to be directed to the AccuQuilt page for that particular die}. You choose which die you'd like me to use, send me your fabrics and they will come back to you all cut and ready to stitch together.



Need some inspiration? Check out this pretty Dresden Sunflower Quilt. Or look at Michelle's amazing Scrappy Drunkard's Path design {which would work best with the 3½ die}. I've bookmarked a whole list of Drunkard's Path designs that would work well with either size. And then there's Lane's leaders and enders Irish Chain Quilt. I got the 1½ Squares die specifically to start cutting scraps to make my very own.

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me which die you'd like to have me to cut fabric for you with.

• You can enter each giveaway during the week only once {with the exception of the $50 machine quilting gift certificate}. However if you spread the word about my week of giveaways by posting on your blog and sending people on over to check it out, you can have one additional entry on one giveaway of your choice. After you post, leave a comment on the giveaway post for which you'd like a second entry with a link to your post.
• Non-blogging and international entrants are welcome. If you do not have a Google account, use the name/url or anonymous commenting options and make sure you leave me a way to contact you if you win.
• Duplicate posts or comments with no contact information will be deleted.
• The giveaway will close at 10:00 pm {MST} on Friday, January 21. Winner will be chosen by random drawing and announced by 5:00 pm on January 22.

This is a great idea - thank you. Something curved would probably be a good idea!

Hmm dresden or hexagons...If I win I'll decide. Thanks for hosting such a fun giveaway week.

Michelle said...

You're such a sweetheart, Elizabeth!

Sarah Craig said...

What a great idea, Elizabeth! I've wanted to do a Drunkard's Path, but just can't bring myself to buy the die for a quilt I "might" make someday! So this would be perfect! Thanks for the chance!

Brenda said...

Great offer. I would choose either the dresden plate or 2 in squares for the scrappy Irish quilt. I would have to think about it if I win. Choices :O)

P. said...

You are so generous! I love all your linked examples!

JANET said...

I would love some circles done! I've seen some really mod quilts done all in circles....

Our Busy Little Bunch said...

I can't decide between the dresden plates or the drunkard's path ~ both would make a beautiful quilt! THANKS for the chance!

Hello Dresden my love! Oh, and i love your new background and header. So cute, and springy!

Stray Stitches said...

I would love to have you cut out some hexagon shapes for me to go into my Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt!!

Debra said...

Would love some cutouts from the dresden die. I haven't purchased this one yet!

Amber said...

I have never seen one of these before (remember I am a novice), but love your idea of cutting for someone! So fun!

Patty said...

That is the neatest idea for a giveaway. I'd love to have some fabric cut using a GO! cos I'd like something with curves and hate to think of hand cutting them.

Linda said...

What a generous offer. Thanks for the great giveaway!

Angie said...

I have wanted to make a drunkard's path for years but the idea of cutting all those curves gives me the heebies!

Just JaiCi's Crafts said...

Look at how clever you are!!! I would never have thought of this - but it's such a great idea :)

Joyce said...

Such a thoughtful and unique idea. Thanks for the chance to win! I just put your blog in my favorites - I'll be back often.
