Big News!

Why am I smiling so big? Because I’m the newest GO! Getter for Accuquilt !

Yesterday, I received this big box at my front door. Yay!

And inside?

So much goodness! Let me show you what was inside. I’m pretty sure you can guess what this is….

A GO! Cutter! Woo hoo! It’s the one thing my Arizona studio was missing.

The Ready. Set. GO! Set includes instructions on using the die cutter and this pattern book, along with a pick for keeping your dies clean.

You also get a full size book with patterns by the illustrious Eleanor Burns.

Now a die cutter won’t do much good without dies, but with this set, Accuquilt has you covered. The 8 inch GO! Qube die set is also included.

Here are the dies in the set.

The 2 1/2 inch strip cutter comes with this set as well. You may remember that this was on my list of favorite dies.

I like that they come in this nice protected storage box.

Of course, I had to try it out! I grabbed the two inch square die and some scraps.

I put six layers of scraps over one of the squares

Place the mat on top.

And crank it through! It’s easy peasy to run these through and so much faster and easier than rotary cutting.

And how about that accuracy?

As a GO! Getter, I will get the opportunity to create posts for Accuquilt’s blog. You already know how much I love my studio cutter, I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to put the GO! through its paces.

Thanks for allowing me to share my excitement with you all! Have some great day!
