Look What the UPS Man Left

So, I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when the UPS man in the big, brown truck dropped off this box.  Thank you Crazy Mom Quilts and AccuQuilt!

Here is a peek inside.

Here is the Go! Baby in the box and also the three dies that I chose.

I have already tried it out by cutting some of my scraps into 5″ squares.  It was soooooo easy!  It brought back memories of cutting out shapes for my bulletin boards at school, but this is so much better, because I am cutting gorgeous fabric to make into beautiful quilts!

On another note, I finished the binding on my Glory/Hidden Stars Quilt.  I really like this star fabric.  It is from Robert Kaufman.

Finally, it has been hot here and muggy.  After a long swim at the lake, one of my two girls, Penny, was exhausted!! This is a favorite position of my dogs.  So, silly!


Look What I Won!!

I can’t believe it, but I won the giveaway at Crazy Mom Quilts!  Amanda Jean and Accuquilt gave away this adorable, amazing GO! Baby fabric die cutting machine!  I am so excited about getting this prize.  I’ve never won a giveaway before.

This is such a cool machine, it cuts the fabric into specific shapes and designs.  I got to choose three dies to go with the cutter.  I chose the birds (they are adorable!), the hexagons (I’ve always wanted to make a grandmothers flower garden quilt), and the 5″ square so I can make my own charm packs!

Thanks Amanda Jean and Accuquilt!  I can’t wait to get my Go! Baby and show you my quilting progress!
