Cutting With the Go!: A Giveaway

Quilters aren't greedy. They're materialistic. –Unknown

Not too long ago, I won an AccuQuilt Go! Fabric Cutting System. It was pretty awesome.

Since then, I've been thinking of ways to share it because it is just too good to keep to myself. So I've decided that I'm going to offer up some Go! cutting to the TWO winners of this giveaway.

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 for each winner. How does that sound?

The details: Have a mountain of scraps you want cut to 2" or 4" {finished} squares or 2" {finished} half-square triangles? No problem. Been dying to do a Dresden? Easy peasy. Drunkard's Path got your head spinning? This'll sober you up. Do Hexies make you hesitate? No cause for pause with the Go!  You pick which die you want {from the four I have}, send me your fabric and it will come back to you all cut and ready to stitch together.

As with all of my giveaways, 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.

To enter, leave a comment telling me how awesome you think I am your ideas for how to use these dies.

The giveaway will close at 10:00 pm {MDST} on October 11. The winner will be announced by noon on October 12.

Ooooh! What a great idea for a giveaway!!! I have a mountain of scraps to be cut but I'd also love love love to do a Drunkard's Medallion (Karrie Lyne's pattern) so I'd probably have you cut the Drunkard's Path pieces. (Since I can cut my own 2.5" squares.....) Thanks!

I am trying really hard not to start a new project, but it's mostly becaues the cutting part takes so dang long! And if you were to cut say, a bunch of dresden plates or hexies for me.... well then that's half the battle right there! You are awesome for doing such a awesome and productive giveaway!

Rebecca said...

Oh, what a great idea!! I'd love for you to cut me some with the drunkard's path die ~ thanks for the chance!

I have always wanted to make a Dresden plate quilt. I might even send you pieces of my daughter's dresses that I made or loved over the years. I would love to have someone do the cutting for me. Lots of possibilities. great give away!

Oh, sorry for my previous post! I haven't read carefully what dies you have...(I thought that all...)

So probably I would like to try Drunkard's Path - I've never done it so far, so for sure it would be great challenge for me (I love to try new patterns and blocks)

Shay said...

I do think you're awesome...and this is such a generous giveaway.

I'd probably go hexies. It's on my list for a future quilt and I've even made up a template but that's as far as I got.

Thanks for the chance at having all the hard work done !

Paulette said...

Well, you ARE awesome, Elizabeth! This is so generous of you to share your GO and your time and skill. I would love to try a drunkard's path! Loved your word play in the "details" paragraph!

Angie said...

What a great idea! That is awesome that you would think of doing that! I would love to have the Drunkard's Path. Thanks so much for the opportunity. =)


Thanks again.


Regina said...

What a great idea and very generous giveaway. I think I'd choose to try the Drunkard's Path because I ordered that awesome Curve Master foot and it's begging me to use it!

Deb said...

Such a great idea! I'm all about trying a Dresden plate, but somehow just never got around to trying it out.

The cutting out is such a huge part of the quilt process...this is a very thoughtful giveaway. I'm a not too complicated quilter so would have to go with the 4" square. I have the fab. already to make a quilt for my daughter. It would be wonderful to have some "help" to move it along.
Thanks for thinking of others:)

Awesome giveaway! Have lots of scraps to be cut into hexies. You tell me how to prep the fabric so most convenient, and away we can go! Thank you for the offer.
