I Fell in Love Last Night

My heart is GOing pitter patter, my palms are all sweaty, my breathing is heavy, I'm dizzy, I can't sleep, I can't eat...(well, not really...'cause I can always eat..darn it.)      All the sensations and symptoms are must be LOVE!    I fell in everlasting love with my GO cutter by AccuQuilt  using the circle die last night.

Ok.. I picked out my fabrics, set up the GO cutter, got the GO circle die out...ready set GO!

Have you ever tried cutting perfect circles for a project?  I've tried everything to cut  circles; tracing around a saucer or plate with a pencil, using a compass & pencil, tracing around a template, using carbon paper, using tracing paper.  You name it, I've tried it.  I could never cut them out perfect...let alone 4 of them at a time.  

I'm not GOing to give you a tutorial here, I'm just sharing my LOVE for this amazing machine!   If you want to see a complete demonstration video for using the circle die with the GO cutter, you can watch the video on Accuquilt's website: 

Wow!  That was fast...just crank the handle.. gosh, my palms are getting sweaty..(1st sign)   Place the fabric again, crank the handle...lift off the mat.  Wow!  Four more!   Oh, be quiet my pounding heart...pitter patter, pitter patter.  (2nd sign)   Do it all again and again...breathing heavy (3rd sign),   more circles and more circles.  I'm getting dizzy now.  (4th sign).  Oh My! 

This is one AMAZING cutting machine!  I cut over 240 five inch circles last night in a little over one hour! 

Yes,   I'm definitely in LOVE...............with my GO cutter.  You GOtta get one of these. 

If you'd like a chance to win  a Free GO, click on the picture at the top of this page and enter my giveaway.  AccuQuilt has generously provided me with a free GO cutter for one  lucky person!  Plus you'll get to choose 3 dies of your choice.   May I suggest the circle die?   Tell your friends, tell your family, GO tell everyone about this contest.  Actually, if you want to GO shout it from the roof, that's fine with me. 

Sigh..........I'm GOing to GO to bed now and dream about everything I can make with these circles.    Happy Dreams for sure!


  1. Great Christmas fabrics as well! I have crossed my fingers and toes can't wait until the drawing :O)

  2. I hope I win one, otherwise im just going to have to be jealous of you everyday until I get one :) Maybe after we settle in our move I can buy one, :)

  3. Your Christmas Circles and my Christmas Circles want to get together! Very cute. Can't wait to see what you do with yours. Enjoy!


  4. :) One of these days soon I will have a GO! cutter. My odds are pretty good, I think I've entered 2399999 different GO! giveaways... Just gotta hold on, hang out, sew more, and pray the 1st gets here quick! I really like the circles, I may have to get that die WHEN I win!!

  5. OMG, are we going to have to start a GOaholic support group for Seriously, I love that you are so enthused about your GO. And Greg, back off dude, I am going to win one of those

  6. I have just gotten the circle die. I haven't taken it out of the package yet. I got it to cut circles for fabric yo-yos. However, I am thinking I may do that "a" word (applique) just a bit to spice up some quilt blocks.

  7. What fun!!!! I would love to win one of the GOs out in blogland.

  8. Wow! I have been wanting one of these for a long time. I would love to be able to cut my own strips. The circle cutter looks great too!

  9. I will be cutting circles soon without a GO to make my circle quilt, so I hope I win!
