More AccuQuilt Go! giveaway

What the heck is going on? This is the 3rd or maybe 5th person I have seen giving away the Accuquilt Go!. Seeing how badly I want one I think I will try to win by posting and such like. Just a Guy Who Quilts is giving another one away...

AccuQuilt Go! & Hexies

This super cool gal at A Quilting Life is giving away an AccuCut Go! I just about fainted. Yes, I so want one. No, it's not in the budget says the man with the purse strings. This goes on every time we go to a store that has one. Then I pout. But this giveaway would be so awesome.

I do love all of the processes behind making a quilt. The choosing of fabric, the cutting (this tears at the heart), the piecing, then then borders, quilting it (especially now that I have figured out how to use the free-motion foot), the binding, but my favorite thing is the giving. My least favorite would be the cutting & truing of the blocks.

On a quilt, I start cutting the pieces, then ask the hubby to finish. For the past few months I have been trying to convince him that the AccuCut would make both of our lives easier. Still no go.

Crossing my fingers for the giveaway from Miss Sherri.

Vacationy Stuffs

So I was on vacation for 2 weeks & had the thought that I would blog about the progress of my projects. With photos & all. Every time I sat down at the computer to do so, I had to hurry & go back to work on them. I had 2 weeks to make from start to finish 4 quilts. This included designing them & making a design wall. The process is still quite slow for me. Then there was an issue with the quilting part of the quilts. And a road trip, and anniversary and birthday. All in all I got most of the list done. The last quilt is still being worked on because the backing decided that it wanted to be too small & I didn't notice it until the piece was all quilted. Arg!! Maybe after I finish redoing the backing & re-quilting that one I will post them & their process.
