hit me baby, one more time

(sorry about the Britney reference up there in the title. I couldn't resist)

You read the other day about my new (ok, I've had for a few months, so it's not entirely new) toy, the Accuquilt GO! Baby cutter, right?
Well, those nice people at Accuquilt have given me one for one of you guys to win as well. Isn't that awesome? Not just a cutter, you get to choose 3 dies from the huge selection as well. So soon we can cut, cut, cut together. Eeep! That's some cool prize, I'd like to win it myself, except I already have my cutter, so that'd be selfish and greedy.

The chance to win is super simple - just leave me a comment on this post and tell me what die is your favourite. Head on over to the Accuquilt website by clicking right here and come back and let me know. Simples, right? No singing, no dancing, no added extra chances for anything (although you could sing and dance I'd quite like it). My favourite is the 2 1/2" strip. It's just so dang useful. Although I'm itching to get me a half square triangle die too. I have it sat in my basket. I really need to click thru to check out.
Also - if you click on the little badge up on the right hand side of the page here...the one that says 'get 22 free patterns' and sign up to the newsletter you get 22 free patterns to make a whole heap of cool things.

GO! baby!!!!!!!!

So what are you waiting for? Just head on over to the Accuquilt site, have a look round then come back and tell me what die is your favourite. Simples!

Giveaway is open for one full week from today until July 5th and is open to anyone, just make sure I have a way to contact you should you win.

I made this cute little quilt the other day for Snoop dog using half a jelly roll (the other half is being used to make a quilt to match for his best friend Bailey Boo). It was so easy, the top only took me a couple of hours (it took a while longer to get round to finishing, of course). I think I'll have to get the Accuquilt Go! Baby out and whip up a few 'home made' jelly rolls and make some more.

a quilt for Snoop

Let me also tell you about a fantastic sale that Accuquilt have going on right now too. Because if you buy a GO! Baby cutter you get a free Alex Anderson die set worth $139 and 2 patterns as well. So if you can't wait til next week to find out if you've won my giveaway, you could take advantage of the offer while it stands (thru July 5th)

EDITED - COMMENTS ARE NOW CLOSED AND THE WINNER IS COMMENT NUMBER 160 - VALERIE! (WHO ALSO DID A LITTLE SONG AND DANCE...NICE) CONGRATULATIONS, LOOK OUT FOR THE EMAIL FROM ME SHORTLY!

Michele said...

I think the Value Die might be very handy, but I really like the dog too!

Sequana said...

I know there are people who love all the various shapes of the cutters, but I'd like the strip one (like you) 'cause no matter how hard I try, I never get a really even strip all the way from end to end.
Thx for the chance to win.

Nancy said...

I would love to own a GO! Baby Cutter... I would request the 5 inch square, the dresden plate and a one of the circle cutters...

Amber said...

I love the tumbler, but I can see myself ever getting tired of the 2.5" strips!

iwillmakecrafts said...

I absolutely love the tumbler block. It seems so intimidating to cut them myself, but die might make it more worthwhile!

Cass said...

I love them all and i am hopeless at decisions but I love the bird one

Melinda said...

I like the Dresden die but I would probably get way more use out of the 2.5" strips die! Thanks for such a great giveaway!

Kristen said...

My favorite is the 2.5 inch as well. No more cutting binding strips! Thanks for the chance to win!

Karen said...

Love your blog and thanks for the fun give away. I would love the drunkard's path die. That would save so much cutting!

fallingforpieces said...

I'd really love to do a drunkards path quilt, but I would never cut it out, so the Go! would be my chance.

gill said...

Hard to choose between the bird and the tulip but my choice would be the tumbler!

Manda said...

I think the 2 & 1/2" strip one would be most useful. But I like the star point one too! :)

lykkefanten said...

I love the apple core and the drunkards path, they represent something I wouldn't be able to cut myself and I do love the shapes ;)

memmens said...

I am singing and dancing - I would love one of these, how many dies to choose from? erm I'll go for the half square finished triangle 4" it might be the most useful...
thank you so much for the giveaway (keep seeing US ones not open to us lovely Brits!)
I'm giving away on my blog this week too although nothing as fancy as this - pop on over http://mary.emmens.co.uk

Debbie said...

I would have to say my favorite is the GO! Value Die :) Gotta love a value!

Mama Spark said...

I'm with you Katy I love the 2.5" strip die. What a great giveaway!!! See me singing and dancing over here across the pond??

Lisa said...

I like the sound of the two and a half inch strip die but I think I'd love a tumbler die. I love tumbler quilts and I'd be able to use some of my big stack of scraps!

lisajan1110(at)msn(dot)com

Susan C. said...

I had no idea there were so many dies! I think I'd love the 2-1/2" strip as well, but there are so many to try! Thanks for the giveaway!

Lee Ann said...

I've been wanting a GO! Baby for a long time. My favorite die is the Hexagons and I'm wanting the Circles and Tumblers too!

Kerry said...

The strip 2.5 cutter is the most useful but the bountiful baskets could be very versatile!

Sarah Craig said...

I have a Go! Cutter and have started collecting the dies - I love my 5" die, and use it the most, but would love to have the tumbler die and the hexie die! We could really use a Go! Baby for our quilt ministry, so pick me, pick me!!

Lisnaweary Quilts said...

I think the Drunkards Path die would be super.

Marci said...

Wow! It would be great to win this! I would definitely choose the hexagon die. Thanks much for the opportunity!

Cassie said...

I have been wanting to make an apple core quilt but cutting the pieces seems so scary so I would definitely like that one!

Martha said...

Wow...that quilt is gorgeous!
I only have a vague notion of what a die is....and I'm guessing mine would be the jellyroll die, if there is such a thing!! :o)

Caitlin said...

I think I would like the perfect circle dies :) I'd like to make a quilt that looks like bubbles!

caro said...

Holy doodle do I ever want to check one of these out. The Studio system has been on my list for AGES. I think for a wee Go Baby cutter, that 2.5" strip would get a tonne of use. Binding! So! Much! Binding!

nicole followthewhitebunny said...

Oh count me in! That Snoop is awfully lucky to live with you guys, the dawg has his own quilt! I think I'd want the 2.5 strip too, and I like the diamond as well...and the tumblers...and all the squares and triangles...

mascanlon said...

Oh the Drunkards path and the sweet Alex Anderson baskets...I have pining away for one of these for months!

DianeY said...

I'd really choose the drunkard's path because I hate cutting anything that isn't a straight line!

Jessica said...

I'd like the apple core die because it looks so fun. I think the half-square triangle might be a more practical choice, though, because really how many apple core quilts can one girl make?

Domestic House Kat said...

I cant choose just 1 because I am twisted like that. However, I do have to say that I particularly LOVE the birds die (ok I like the tulip one too!).

Kwilt Noob said...

I have had my eye on the Go Baby for quite a while now! I think since I'd be just getting my feet wet in the "die pool," I would go with one of the more basic dies like the HST. Then I could make pinwheels for days and days and days! Thanks for the chance! :)

grendelskin said...

I'd love the strips but would drool over AppleCore even more, because I think this would be the only way I'll get around to it!

Heidi said...

Love the fun fabrics of the quilt!

It would be a dream to own a Baby go! All the shapes offer something interesting, but think I'd like to play with the Drunkard's Path blocks!

Cameron H said...

Definitely my favorite is the 2/3/5" circle die, because I can't cut a perfect circle to save my life! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

two hippos said...

oh to choose just one! I think the apple core would be my choice, what a wonderful give away prize!

Shanna said...

What a great giveaway!! I have been wanting to make a tumbler quilt, so I think the tumbler die would be awesome :o)

Helen said...

Ooooh, it would be so GRAND to win the Go Baby!

I would love to have the Alpha Baby dies! I was going to say the 2 1/2 strip, but the alpha dies are so fun!

Sure is nice of the Accuquilt folks to offer this item and it's so nice of you to do this!

Sara said...

Um...I would sing and dance for this! But since it isn't mandatory, I would have to pick the apple core or the tumbler. And then the strips cause you always need strips for something! Thanks for a chance to win one!

Dirt Road Quilter said...

Oh, your quilt is darling! Thank you for such an awesome giveaway! So many fun dies to choose from, but I think I would start with the 2 1/2" strip. It seems to be so versatile!

moshie said...

I am a fan of the strip dies like you are, BUT I also love the Sunbonnet Sue dies! How cute is that?

moshie said...

and I'm an old follower

lilyeden said...

Wow! I love the Dresden Plate, but then my ambition outstrips my skills....

stitchinpenny said...

The 2.5 inch strip cutter is my favorite, but the birds is my second, followed by the 5 inch square.

Jerri said...

2.5" strips for sure, HSTs, drunkard's path, hearts, and birds! I can't pick one favorite :/

jodie said...

The birds, the birds, the birds!!

amy said...

Yay! This is an exciting giveaway - my least favorite part of quilting is the cutting. That said, I'd be super lame and say my favorite die (as in the one I'd likely use more than any other would be the 2" squares one. I hate cutting tiny squares but I LOVE using them.

Andrea said...

I really like the sparkle diamonds die . Wow there are so many different ones. Think I need to save my pennies or drop some serious hints for Christmas. Oh and believe me you would not want me to sing - lol xxx

Amanda said...

Probably the 2.5" strips or the Hexagon. They're all really neat. Thank you for the chance to win! :)

Char said...

I like the Apple core. I've always wanted to make an apple core quilt.

Gina said...

I was going to pick something practical - until I saw the Birds! They are just so dang cute (and I've had a bit of a thing for birds lately... there are metal figurines of them on my desk right now...)

All of that rambling to just say: Birds!

Adrian said...

Strips, squares, and triangles all the way! Then maybe, maybe, I could be as cool as you :)

Briawna said...

okay, so this could be a very addicting machine. I love pretty much every die! But the most useful ones would be the 2.5 and 2.25 strip cutters and hexagon set. I've never done a hexagon quilt (gasp, i know), mostly because I can't fathom cutting out all the hexies. Thanks for the chance to win this beautiful baby!

briawna(dot)hugh(at)gmail(dot)com

MotherMotherOcean said...

I would want a big square. I cut them all the time.

Amy said...

I'm afraid I'd have to put the 4" diamonds and the 2.5" strip dies into a bag, shake it around and randomly pull one out to be able to choose.

MamaLiza said...

I was just cutting some binding yesterday and dreaming and wishing I had a go cutter and the 2.5 strip die. Yep.

E.Carreto@hotmail.com

twelfthzodiac said...

My first thought on which die I would want was the tumbler block - but! since reading about your Go Baby experience, I'd have to say that 2.5" strip sounds like the most practical one for me!

Elena said...

Omg, Katy! I would just die if I won this! No pun intended :) I'd like the 5" square die so I can make lots of fab HSTs!
Gonna cross my fingers and toes on this one! :)

Karen said...

I'd like to try the Drunker's Path. It's really hard to decide which ONE as I would love to try out a number of them. Thanks for giving us a chance to win!

Deanna said...

Love the 5" square, dresden plate & 2 1/2" strip dies. Really enjoy your blog! = )

Rae said...

I’ve been debating buying a Go! or Go! Baby for a few months now, and my favorite die changes every couple of weeks :) I would have to have the 2.5" strip. I use jelly roll strips all the time. But at this point it’s not favorite, just a requirement.

My favorite at the moment is the double wedding ring set, because I have a couple of ideas for quilts with that shape (which may or may not end up looking like real double wedding ring quilts…)

Bethany said...

Great. I had my song and dance all ready for you :)
I love the tumbler die - I've seen a lot of tumbler quilts and want to make one, but there's no way I'd attempt it without an easy-cutting method.

trash said...

Lots of choice over on the site but I narrowed it down to 4" half triangles. Or the Christmas sparkle set. Or may be the hearts. ALthough the chise set looked like fun...

Kathryn said...

I think I'd like to do a scrappy tumbler quilt, and the 3-1/2 inch die would be the perfect size. I can't imagine cutting those pieces by hand. Thanks for the giveaway. Kathie L in Allentown

jlk said...

I really like the tumbler die. I've always wanted to make a tumbler quilt, but the thought of cutting out all those pieces stops me.

LuAnn said...

Oh Katy..you are having too much fun. I seem to have lost my passion for quilting the last couple of weeks. I think a GO! would be great! I think creating your own jelly rolls with the 2 1/2" strip die would be nice. I could finish my Scrap Vomit!

Jane said...

Well, if I'm being practical a 2.5 inch strip die would be my pick. For funsies it would be the drunkard's path. Actually, I'd love cutting if pattern writers weren't so darn picky about accuracy!

KVatt said...

I think that 2.5 strip die would be an answer to my prayers! Bindingless no more!

Four dogs and one quilter said...

I would pick the 1" finished half square triangle die. Have wanted to make a feathered star quilt for a while now, think this die would be a great help.

Mom2RyandSis said...

Would love to win this and if I sing and dance hopefully you wouldn't take it back :) I would have to pick the tumbler or apple core they look so fun and then the strips so many projects use strips. Thanks for a chance to win one!

dragonfly said...

Blimey! How are you supposed to pick a favourite from there?! I think I'd love the circle die as the chances of me ever cutting a perfect one by hand are pretty slim!

Elvie said...

Wow! 2 1/2 inch strips!!!!!

Agnes

girlforallseasons said...

Definitely a half square triangle die for me.

cherie godbey said...

I have a triangle sickness right now, so those would work great for me! :)

Anna said...

Awesome!! How can I choose just one? If so, I'd start with Drunkard's Path. Thanks for the giveaway!!

safieh said...

Thanks Katy for the generous giveaway! I definitely agree with you that the 2.5" strip is the most useful!

-Safieh

Bolo heads said...

I am currently making a quilt that requires 638 circles, so I would totally go for the circle cutter.

Nicky said...

Drunkard's Path would be my choice - otherwise I would never get around to cutting them out...Thank you for the opportunity.

starfishalley said...

Oh, I'd love a Go cutter. For the dies I would have to say the HST or the apple core would be great!

Miranda said...

I feel like I should shoot for the moon and say something like drunkards path, but all I really want are diamonds. I love diamonds! Tumbling blocks, stars, I love them all!

Kate said...

I think the drunkard's path die would be awesome. I love the look of these quilts, but I can't picture myself cutting the pieces. akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

Judith said...

I think the 2 1/2 strip one would be most handy for me.

Penny said...

I think the 2.5" strip die would be most useful or failing that the 3" half sq triangles but I love them all!

Chelsea said...

I've got to admit, despite all the reviews I've read, I still don't quite get these cutters! But, if I did get one (ha!) I'd definitely pick the hst as one of my dies. Anything to make those little buggers easier!

Lotti said...

I love the holiday medley, that snowflake is adorable! For practicality though I would definitely choose the hexagons though as a hexi quilt is on my to do one day list. Fab giveaway x

Wendy said...

Nice! I think I would probably choose the value die :) Lots of fun shapes for sure though!

Anonymous said...

I would love to win a GO. I have probelms cutting my fabric and that would be wonderful to use. I think the 2 1/2" die would be the most helpful. Thanks for the chance to win. Bonnie in Iowa browne426@hotmail.com

rderrett said...

It would be really good fun to have the Rob Peter to pay Paul die but it doesn't fit the GO Baby so I'd have to go for the apple core die

RuthDesigns said...

Bountiful Baskets for me :) I really fancy a basket quilt in my lovely liberty stash!

Pamela said...

I would love the tumbler die - they are so much fun to sew, but not so much to cut.

Dara said...

I really want one of these babies!! There are so many projects that would be simpler to do and I could get the kids involved!!

Creative Mom said...

There are so many more dies then I expected but I would have to be practical first and say 2 1/4" strip then I'd go with something geometric.Thanks for sharing your bloggy super powers with us!

jackie said...

oh i just want to make a double wedding ring quilt and i know it will fail without this!! great giveaway!

Karen said...

I'd love to have the 3 1/2 and 7 inch drunkard's path dies. I've seen several really beautiful quilts made with different sizes of blocks, and this would make playing with those designs so much easier!

~Michelle~ said...

I'd go for the HST dies! And I <3 Britt Britt :)

Scandeez said...

I would love the 4 1/2" squares or any of the strip cutting dies.

Alex said...

I'm totally lusting after one of these!

Gnomemade said...

Thanks for such a great giveaway! I'd definitely love to try out the Tumbler die - always wanted to make a tumbler quilt, but all the precise cutting scared me away.

Anonymous said...

I love the quilt you made for snoop! So cute! I really like the drunkard's path die. I want to start working with curves. Thanks for the chance to win!
katrina_hertzer2000(at)yahoo(dot)com

Deb said...

I would have to say the 2 1/2" strip cutter would be my favorite - it would get quite a workout. Thanks for the chance!

Erica said...

I love the tumbler, but I can see myself ever getting tired of the 2.5" strips!

Homeowner Insurance Plan

Helen said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I love the daisy or the birds die - I can't draw so these would be used all the time!

Toni said...

The 2.5" strip would definitely get the most use, but really, I would get the apple core or drunkards path because let's just face it, I won't cut them myself. I would love to make a quilt with them, so either winning this or bribing someone else to do the cutting is the only way...

Hannah said...

Ooooh I would LOVE a GO! Baby cutter! I think my favourite die would have to be the 5" square, because its classic but easily adaptable (easy to turn into half-square triangles, snowball blocks etc). Thanks for the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

I like the sparkle stars, but the practical side of me says 2.5 inch strips
sharp.camilla@gmail.com

babiesdoc said...

I like the circle, bird and dresden
Actually i like everything

Katherine said...

The tulip die is so cute!

easternsparkle said...

I've been lusting after one of these for soooo long ;o I think the 2 1/2 strip die would be my favourite!

Jenniffier said...

I too want the 2 1/2 inch strip I hate cutting those. Also I think I would like to try the drunkard's path die. Thanks for the chance to win.

veryberryhandmade said...

Oooh, oooh! I would love one of these.. Mmm, dies - I love that tumbler shape, the hexies, and the 2.5" strip die. Brilliant. Thanks for the chance.

Jenny said...

I really really want to make an apple core quilt...so guess that is my favorite die...so much easier than cutting by hand!

Nancy, Near Philadelphia said...

Tumblers, here. Thank you for this opportunity.

Erin Marie said...

the 2 1/2 inch strip... cuz I can never cut them straight enough!

Cajame said...

Oh my! I saw one of these on holiday last year.... If only! What a fantastic prize.
I'm thinking the 2.5 strip, 5 inch square and a triangle.

Sarah said...

ooooh, I'd love a go with one of those ;-) I'd probably pick the 2.5" strip, and the hexies... Thanks for giving us a chance to win! Snoop dogs quilt is lovely, and will look way cuter with the lovely snoop dog on it ;-)

Caroline said...

Oh yes please! I'm so rubbish at cutting out... I'd love the 2.5 strip, the 4 x 4 diamonds and the hexagons *crosses fingers and toes*

See Spot Shop said...

Sung to the alphabet song...

Oh how happy I would be
With Go Baby! Just for me
Alphabet's my favorite die
And you surely must know why
Words and names on quilts I'd sew
I'd love to win, just so you know.

mjb said...

I'd love to just cut all my scraps into accurate strips and squares.

Crystal said...

Oh, I saw these machines at a quilt show - it is amazing what you can do with them! I like the rag square 5 1/4 inch, but I like the 2.5" strip too - so many choices!

Julie said...

I'd love to have the dresden plates, I've seen wonderful things done with them....and you've sold me on the strip cutter!

Sudi-Laura said...

okay, so I'm not a gadget kind of girl, but after cutting squares for the SVQ I need this baby ( pun intended)!

Amy said...

I think I'd kind of love the 2.5" strips!!!

Karin said...

One of these babies would get so much use in my sewing room! Cutting strips and strip sets would be great, but my favorite is the apple core cutter - a quilt I've always wanted to make, but never wanted to cut out by hand! :)

Anonymous said...

Hi. Love the quilt and I am so jealous you have your hands on a lovely Go! - although I am happy that you are enjoying it. If I was lucky enough to win I think that it would have to be the GO! Value die with the 2 squares and 1/2 square triangle. I can see that would get alot of use. Enjoy your Go!
carolinehemsley@btinternet.com

Sally said...

I like the 4 inch diamond, I generally make a right bodge cutting anything other than right angles!

nikki said...

I would really love to make a tumbler quilt, but I just do not like the idea of cutting all those bits of fabric.

Tobit said...

what a fab device - I think the 2.5 strip, 5 inch square and a triangle would make a perfect combination.

Sarah N. said...

I think you are right - the 2.5 inch strip cutter would be most useful - but I think I might choose the Go! Bird cutter - too cute!!

Jen said...

Thanks for the giveaway - I hope it's okay for me to enter from here down in Oz! I like the tumbler block and the triangles!

Harrysmum said...

Another great giveaway!
My favourite die would be the drunkards path - I'm guessing it's a pain to cut any other way and that alone stops me from trying it!

Kerry said...

I like the apple core - but maybe that's cause I've just finished eating an apple?

Lindsay said...

I like the five inch square die. I love patchwork squares:)

Staci said...

If I was the lucky winner, the very first die I'd like to get is drunkard's path. It is so annoying to cut out by hand or with the rotary cutter.
Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Anne D said...

Thanks for a great giveaway. My favourite is also the 21/2 inch strip too. I love jelly rolls and jelly roll patterns and would love to whip up my own strips.

Andi said...

I'm with you Katy. The 2 1/2 inch strip die would be majorly handy!!
Andi x

Jacqueline said...

Do I have to choose just one?? If I do, Id have to go with the 2.5" strip. But I really like Sunbonnet Sue too... =) Thanks for the giveaway!

Tanya said...

My practical side says 2.5 strip, the crazy side of me says apple core!

Michelle @ the quilted tortoise said...

For me it would definitely be the hexagon 2,3,5 so I could finally get around to making a blue and white Liberty hex quilt...of course I'd also need to get way more fabrics for it too...

Molly said...

What fun! So hard to choose - the half square triangle and the circle would be super useful...I suppose I'd pick the half square triangle, if I had to choose just one.

Katie said...

I do love the idea of a 2 1/2" strip die, if only so that I don't have to cut out any more binding strips.

kimburli said...

As a complete novice I'd need something not too challenging (no drunkards path or circles just yet!) A simple tumbler would give me the confidence to push the boundaries a little further than squares and hexies.

Paula said...

The circle 2,3 ,5 die looks great and would be my favourite.

Rachel said...

Eeek. Thanks for the giveaway. I'd love the drunken's path die. Rachel x racunningham(at)hotmail(dot)com

byneedleandthread sarah said...

wow what a great chance to win something that would be forever useful! i would pick 2.5 inch strip, 5 inch square and not sure what i'd pick for the third one. To be decided if i win.

the form is not letting me log in.
byneedleandthread.blogspot.com
byneedleandthread on flickr. you know me :)

H2Ogirl said...

Wowzers. . a chance to win. How grand. I would want uhhh Half Square 4" Finished triangle. A little help with these would be lovely.

Montseta said...

Mine is the 2.5 inch strip too! Great machine and giveaway!

Two Wednesdays said...

i didn't get the 2.5 in strip until you said make your own jelly rolls...... but then I'm torn by the circles and those birds! What a fab giveaway.

Jenna said...

The strip would be so great! I also loved the critters die. bjmcgowan.blogspot.com

Megs said...

I'd have to go for either the value die set, the 2" squares, or the 4" half square triangles. It feels lame to choose dies that are all straight sides but I have a heck of a time getting things cut nicely. Great giveaway! Thanks for the chance.

Barb Robson said...

The strip die would be great or the hexagons. Thanks!

Esther said...

Oh such a choice, while I agree with you the simple ones are often the most used I'd probably go for something I feel I need to engage brain to cut like the hex or one of the appliqué ones like the fall medley as I have a thing for leaves or feathers.

Diary of a Flutter.Kat said...

Oooh thank you for the chance! (i love your blog by the way- does kissing up count for anything ;) ) I would also love the strip die, or the hst die, or the 5 inch square die, or the... I think you get the idea :)

Tyra @ SilverLily Sews said...

What a great giveaway! I've been dying to try both a tumbler or a drunkards path quilt. Fingers crossed!

Laine from JustPlainLaine.com said...

My favorite die is the hexagon! I love Accuquilt. Awesome they gave you one to give away.

Laine from JustPlainLaine.com said...

I visited Accuquilt!

Janet ~ Lola Pink Fabrics said...

I love the pumpkins and the gingham dog. I like the flowers too. I want one of these so bad... :o}

Smeeker082 said...

I would so looooove a Go! baby! It's hard to choose one favorite, I like the 2.5 strips because it would be so useful but I really want to make a quilt with circles so that would be really handy too

susan said...

such appropriate fabric for snoop! super cute quilt too. hmm thats a hard one. i think the 5" square...it would probably be the most useful for me but ooo the thimble! lol

Valerie said...

Love the drunkard's path die, I've always wanted to try that pattern but the cutting terrifies me.

Actually, the sewing kind of terrifies me too. But I'd definitely try!

(And now for the singing and dancing... hello my honey, hello my baby, hello my ragtime gaaaaal)

Angelina S. said...

I REALLY want to make an apple core quilt but there is no way I'm cutting out those curves by hand. I need this machine!

momma said...

Drunkards path for sure, so time consuming to cut otherwise, and I've just been practicing curves ;)

RedHeadedQuilter said...

I think I'd like the fall medley or the birds.

stitchsister said...

I'm liking the Holiday Medley ~ it's never too early to get started on Christmas gifts, and I'm game for anything that makes my life easier. Thanks for offering the giveaway!

Karen said...

Oh, Drunkard Path hands down. Cutting those out by hand? Ugh!

joan said...

The strip maker for a really fast jelly roll assortment.. i.e. 2.5 inches would be a great tool.

Strega_Rossa said...

I love quilting but do not <3 rotary cutting. I've cut myself a couple of times :*(

I **LOVE** the rag cutter!! I have fabrics in mind for it :D This would be a great addition to my craft room.

Marieke said...

I enjoy the GO! Drunkard's Path-3 1/2" the most! Just becuase you can do so much with those patterns :) :) love your blog!

Tappity tap tap, tap TAP! You like that little dance? No singing I'm afraid..... wouldn't want your ears to bleed! I'm with you all the way, the 2 1/2" strips would make my life a Whole lot easier....

Jackie said...

Most definitely the 2.5" strip. I don't like making those long cuts (honestly, I dont like cutting fabric at all). I could then cross cut into 2.5" squares with this same dye. Double duty!

I would love to have the Go! drunkard's path die. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

I like the Tumbler die. And I will sing and dance if I win. :)

Patti said...

What a lovely quilt you've made I live the colours.

A truly awesome giveaway. If I was lucky enough to win the die I would chose would be the GO! Half Square-1 1/2" Finished Triangle as I seem to be particularly bad at making these.

Thanks for the chance.

Julie said...

Just saw an amazing drunkards' path quilt- so the dye would be to die for!

Lainey said...

Awesome giveaway! I would love the 2 1/2" strip maker or the tumbler! So cool! xo

Emskyrooney said...

Eek I hope I win!! I'd love a tumbler die or maybe something with curves!

BarbaraG said...

Ok, so I need to pick one! You are soooo cruel! Ok, how about...GO! Double Wedding Ring. Those curved pieces are a pain to cut out.

Fabulous blog and super fab give away.

pcflamingo said...

Pick one? Only one? Eek. The 2 1/2" strip - I do a lot of homemade jelly roll type quilts. Now I will do an interpretive dance about jelly roll quilts as an added incentive to pick me pick me please :D

AmyDe said...

What a fun opportunity! I love the die shapes that are harder to cut by hand - the apple core, drunkard's path, and tumblers - but then those birdies are just so darn cute!

Mego said...

Oh MY...I want one!!! I love love love the drunkards path template...I have to HAVE it. Thanx for the chance. FINGERS CROSSED!!!

Lisa said...

I think I'd do the tumblers, but the strips could be awfully useful.

Danielle said...

I love the GO! baby... keep trying to win one, maybe this will be my time! LOL~ I think I'd give the 2 1/2 strip die a good workout, so that would be my favorite.

Lesa said...

What a great giveaway! I love the funky flowers - they are too fun!

DD Lindsey said...

I would have to say the Drunkards path die WOULD be a fave, if I HAD a Baby GO! But since I don't, & can only hope to WIN one, I'll say that I THINK my fave would be the Drunkards path die. Thanks for the opportunity :)

I think the Hexagons would be great fun to play with but I have to admit that I've seen lots of different shapes that would be great for applique. Thanks for a great giveaway!

Anna said...

I think it would have to be drunkards path.
Or maybe the stars - i could applique the world with stars!
I have been admiring these for months, but I cannot yet justify buying one . . . one day.

Lexi said...

I love the hexagon die. Imagine being able to cut them out so quickly!

hillwards said...

Wow. The 4 3/4 " square would be really useful to make some baby blocks for a friend - and hopefully for us when the time comes. That strip would be really useful - and I love the birds!
Now I have Beyonce and Britney in my head :-)

Tabatha said...

Wow, if I could, I'd get the 2", 3" & 5" hexagon, those are so fussy to cut out! Thanks for the chance to win!

Oh, I think the 2.5" strip would be terrific, as would the HST, the drunkard's path and any or all of the others. lol

Bronwyn said...

Drunkards Path - it would help me get over me fear of attempting one of these quilts. I confess I have been drooling over a GO for a while, would be a lovely tool to have!

Gillian aka Silly Gilly said...

Oh definitely the Go! Sparkle Slim Tree. So modern, yet retro yet super cute! Imagine those all over a quilt in red, purple and white..... just gorgeous.

Jocelyn said...

As the Beach Boys song says "Wouldn't it be nice?" it would be fantastic to have a Go cutter. The best die for me would be the half-square triangle it is endlessly useful & adaptable. Jocelyn

Selina Marie said...

I like a lot of the dies, but I definitely think the most used by me would be the 2.5" strip! I can think of so many things I could do with that!

karyn said...

i've got a thing for HSTs right now, so I'd have to say that would be my pick for a die. what a super sweet giveaway!

Sharon said...

I love the basics. The hexies, squares, & strips would make life that much easier. :)

zarina said...

I love the basics too as per Sharon. Too bad we can't have the bias square to square up two HSTs.

Jane said...

all the dies seem useful in their own way, but I would particularly love the drunkard's path die. I've always wanted to make a drunkard's path quilt, but can't bring myself to deal with the cutting out of all that fabric, and this would help so much!
