My "BABY' is here and she's GORGEOUS!

I'm so sorry I haven't been posting since winning the GO cutter from AccuQuilt.   I re-injured my right hand/arm again and please don't ask me how I did's too stupid.  Years ago I fell and had to have surgery on the tendons/ligaments on the top of my forearm, and every once in a while it likes to remind me about it.  Well, when that happens I just can't use it for a couple weeks, and sometimes have to go to Physical Therapy.   That's my story and I'm sticking to it!  

My new "baby" is here and is sew BEAUTIFUL! 

You didn't think I'd just show you a picture of the cardboard box now...did you?  Isn't she the most BEAUTIFUL BABY you've ever seen?  

Thank you AccuQuilt! 

and thank you Bejeweled Quilts by Barb for such a fun giveaway!

Due to my arm acting up and needing some attention (sounds just like a kid, doesn't it?) my sister helped me unpack it, and she actually got to try it out first.  I did get to do a couple cranks with my left hand/arm just so "BABY" knew she was mine, not my sisters.

Let me tell you ...........this is a fabulous machine, and is wonderful for anyone who has injured hands/arms or Rheumatoid Arthritis.  It is very easy to use, and I cut out (turning the crank handle left handed)  all the pieces for this GO! for it Quilt FREE Project  using the Value Die that comes with the GO; 4 1/2" square, 2 1/2" square, and 2" half square triangles. 

Drats!  Now, I wish I would have used real bright batiks fabric!  This is so light and pale.  You can't see by the picture very well, but the points matched great!  In the next few days this will turn into a quilt instead of just a quilt top!
