Thanks for hosting.

Patchwork Penguin said...

I'm sorry, did you want three comments? It would definitely help me cut through NUMEROUS fat quarters.

Patchwork Penguin said...

The three dies??? Tumbler, Flower Power, and Hexies.

Thanks again!

Sue said...

Hi glad to hear your great news.
I am a follower
It would make a huge whole in my scraps, different shapes and sizes
Three dies, hexagons, letters and two and half inch squares
Thanks for hosting

Steph :) said...

I am a follower. Cutting fabric is my least favorite part of quilting, a Go! Baby would help me get past that part. I would choose, The half square 4 in triangles, the 5 in squares, and the 2 1/2 in strips.

Jo in TAS said...

Hi Christine,
I'm a follower :-) I'd use this machine to rule over my scraps and turn them into useful pieces. Circle, Hexagons and a 5" template should do the trick!!
Thanks for the chance to win
Cheers
Jo

Nancy said...

I am a follower and would love to be able to tear through my stash with the 2 1/2 inch strip die, the double wedding ring set and the 5 inch square...
Thanks for the opportunity..

Charleen said...

It is a great way to celebrate! I'm a follower and I think I could make a significant dent in my 25 year old stash with this Baby!! I would choose Fall Medley, the Holiday Accessories, and the 4" half square triangles! Thanks for hosting.

Kristie said...

How exciting! I have been wanting one of these for a while now. First of all I had to see if I was actually a follower and I am now. :) I have read your blog for a long time but through Google Reader. I would love to win a GO BABY so that I could cut up my scraps and smaller fabrics. I love scrap quilts the best so my 3 that I would choose would be...2" square, Value Die set and Fall Medley.
Kristie

Di said...

So pleased about your good news Christine. I am a follower and have far too many fabrics which need cutting up for scrap quilts. The Dresden plates, tumblers and hexagons would certainly help me do this. thank you for hosting this great giveaway:-))

Fiona said...

A fantastic way to celebrate. I am of course a long time follower. Hmmm I am not sure that it would actually help me to de-stash - I would probably just buy more fabric so that I could play with it more - LOL I would choose circles, hexagons and hearts.

Hugs - Fee X

Dawn said...

So happy for your good news!!! I am a follower. Having the Go Baby would help me use up my stash by cutting out alot of the cutting time for blocks and applique. If I were to win, I would pick the Bountiful Baskets, the Fall Medley (my favorite time of year!!), and the Drunkard's Path. And September 1st will be by 32nd wedding anniversary!!! Thanks for a wonderful giveaway!! oyer@roadrunner.com

marilyn said...

I'm a follower, I would love the small drunkard's path die and hearts die and I would bring the Go! baby to school to use during my breaks to make useful time cutting scraps to sew back together. Thanks for the giveaway :)

karen said...

Hi Christine, I am a follower! I would like to have a Go! of my own, sharing is good, but when inspiration strikes the cutter is somewhere else!It would enable me to cut up some of that wonderful fabric you saw me struggling to get back on the bus with from Zooks in Lancaster. What a great shop for bargins. I Would like the Go! Rose of Sharon by Sharon Pederson becuase I would use the shapes in lots of different appliques and for my little quilts of love for our local hospital. Then I would like the Go! Hexagon and Go! Diamonds dies. Both of these dies lend themselves to scrap quilts, and the diamond one would make great stars. love karen

Janet said...

I am a follower. I am a hand
appliquer and make a lot of circles. I would love something
that cut many circles at once, plus
I like to stuff the circles with
another circle of batting. Soooooooooo I would love different
size circles to go with the cutter.
Thank you for the chance.

Sharrieboberry said...

I am a follower. :)

Sharrieboberry said...

I'd have a hard time picking from the geometrics. I like the basics--the squares, circles, triangles, and hexagons. But I also like the wedding ring dies. Choices, choices!

Jackie said...

I follow vicariously through someone elses blog who follows you...does that make me a stalker? :)
I think it would help use up those little pieces of leftover fabric that I never quite know what to do with....this way they could be cut into shapes and then sewn together instead of using a leader

Cherry Red Quilter said...

I am a follower and would love a Go Baby as i have arthritis in my hands and cutting is hard. Having the Apple Core 6 1/4", the Tumbler 3 1/2" and Sunbonnet Sue dies would be a great way to use up my scraps.

Sandy said...

I'm a new follower. The Baby would really help me cut out lots of fabric quickly. I would get the 5" square, the hexi die, and the tumbler die. Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

Ellen Easter said...

Hi Christine - so happy to hear your great news. have just joined as a follower. I would use the Go- Baby to start to make inroads to my "Retirement Stash". The dies I would choose would be the Apple Core, the Critters & the Tumbler - I could do a lot with those.

Deidre said...

Hi Christine,
I follow your blog every day, sometimes two or three times a day. I would love to win a Baby Go and the dies I would choose are Dresden Plate, Double Wedding Ring and Hexagons (cos they take so long to cut out). I would be able to make many more of these quilts that I am often asked for. Thanks for the chance :)
Deidre

Lu said...

Hi Christen;
Thank God for your wonderful news!
I am a follower of your blog. I don't have much of a stash but the fabrics I do have I am having a hard time cutting into it for fear of ruining my cut. I think with the Go Baby Cutter I could finally get the confidence to get busy.
I would love the 3.5" tumbler, the Go Value Die, and the 3.5 x 6 rectangle.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Sharon said...

Good Mornine....I am a follower. I guess the die I would use the most would be the 2.5 strip cutter plus the square and apple cutter.... Oh i would be able to get my stash depleted so I can buymore fabric. This was wonderful to hekp me....thankd do much

Lindi said...

I'm a follower. :) I know it would help me stash bust, because cutting out is the one thing I dislike about quilting. I'd choose the Quarter Square Triamgles, the Diamonds and the Circles, to start with. Then slowly add to my collection. lol

Peggy said...

Christine:

I would be doing the "Happy Dance" for quite a long time!! I am a follower and I was happy to read that.

If I could chose 3 dies, they would be 2 1/2" strip, Chisel and the Apple Core. This would be a safe way for my two granddaughters ages 5 & 8 to cut our their own fabric. They started to quilt with me when they were 3 and 5 and we are slowly working thru my stash!

veerle said...

I'm a follower too :)
I could quickly use my scraps of fabric and start patching. It would make things a lot easier.
I would prefer Hexies, The double wedding ring set and Diamonds. Or anything else would be great! Her in Belgium they don't know the machine yet, so I would be the first :)Have a nice weekend all of you!
veerle@eno.be

mokkakissa said...

I am a follower. I have a mountain of fabrics to deal with... I would like to make some hexagons, rounds and diamonds... or cats? Dogs?

Cille said...

I follow your blog and is delighed to hear your good news. Doing a little happy dance myself :)

The cutter is on my wishing list for x-mas already. I would help me quickly to transform my stash into various projects such as a 'Flying Geese' quilt and some stunning applique.


Therefore my chioces of dices are the 4 7/8 inch triangle, the half Square 3 inch Triangle and finally some funky flowers.

Although I'm not ready for summer to be over x-mas can not come soon enough :)

Sonja said...

I´m a follower!
This baby would really help me cut my fabric for appliques!

The dies I´d choose:
drunkard´s path
apple core
pumpkins!

Thank´s for the giveaway!

Yvonne said...

What a wonderful give away Christine and you are drawing on my birhtday! I had to look what 'dies' are, I didn't know the word but I like the Thumbler,Squares and triangles. Yesterday at the Bee we where just talking about this machine and how quick and easy it would be to cut the fabric and get rit of some of our fabric that has been waiting to be cut for some time now. It really would save al lot of time and it would be a fun thing to share with the other six quilters of my Bee. Well, whoever wins is a lucky girl I wish everyone good luck and thank you for having this give away! Have a nice weekend!

Marg M said...

Cardygirl said...

Hi Happy Dance Christine! I am a follower with a great stash of scraps saved for that special scrappy quilt as I can't bear to part with them! This little Go Baby would help sort them out and make a great quilt of memories...in tumblers, hexies and dresdens!

Suzan said...

I am a follower. The dies I would want most are the apple core, drunkard's path & diamond. I hate cutting anything for which you need a template! Thanks for hosting!

Kerry said...

I'm a follower.
I'd love to use the Go Baby to really make a dent in my scrap and fat quarter stash.

Thanks so much for hosting this give-away.

Michelle said...

Wow! Thanks for a great giveaway. I am a follower and I would love the Baby Go as I love scrap quilts and leader ender quilt. It would help greatly with all the cutting, cutting, cutting! My favorite three dies are 6.25" Apple Core, 3.5" Drunkard's Path, and 2" square. Thanks so much!!

Sweet Pea said...

Hi Christine, the good news must be a relief for you!
I have been following your blog for some months now, so I am a follower.
The GO!Baby would help me use up my stash because it would make cutting up all the smaller pieces of fabric in my stash (that I can't bear to part with) 90% quicker than cutting by hand.
I would choose the following 3 dies to go with the GO!Baby: GO!Critters, GO!Tumbler 3 1/2", and GO!Apple Core 6 1/4".
Thanks so much for the chance to win such a versatile piece of equipment.
To spread the word about your giveaway I will be sure to post about it on my blog.

pamkennison said...

Hi Christine, Im a follower :) and very pleased about your results. I would love to have a Go Baby because Im just about to start hexies, and it would be so fast and easy to cut them, and lessen my stash, I would love the hexagons, dresden plates, and the hearts. Thanks for the opportunity

Cheri said...

Why of coarse I am a follower! I would be using stash for one block quilts, so the dies would be hexies, tumblers, and diamonds.
Thanks for hosting the give away Christine!

Jean said...

i am a follower, I would be able to use up lots of scraps. I would love the tumbler, the 3" and 4" HST dies. thanks for the chance to win.

Lee Prairie Designs said...

Hi Christine,

I am a follower and thank you for the chance to win this wonderful new toy! Oh my I sure could have fun with it. I would choose: Tumbler, Flower Power and Hexies.

Great way to celebrate your news.
:) Carolyn

Tina said...

I am a follower.

Since I became interested in sewing and quilting (which was years ago) the cutting factor has always stumped me. I have collected fabric and have 100s of pieces. Therefore, the GO! Baby would help me alleviate this "fear" of making mistakes on the beautiful fabrics I have.

If I were to win this GO! Baby I would choose: 1) GO! Rose of Sharon by Sharon Pederson, 2) GO! Rag Flower & Circle, and lastly, 3) GO! Tumbler-3 1/2"

I have asked for one of these for my birthday this month, but winning one would make it much more special. Thank you for the giveaway! :)

Kelli said...

I am definitely a follower! I have been eyeing one of these and would sure love to win one! It would be great for making a dent in my scrap bag--the three I would pick are hexies, letters, and flower power. Thanks for the chance!

Barb said...

OOOOOhhhhh, I'm so excited at a chance to win one of these!
I'm already a follower (of course) and i think it help me start stash busting, one color or theme at a time.
It's a super hard choice but I'd pick these three:
The circles
The 4" diamonds
The tumblers

Good luck to everyone - and thanks Christine for the opportunity and congrats again!!

Nicky said...

I am following and have just had a demo of this cutie - I even had a go turning the handle which must tone your muscles while you do it!

I think the children will be using up my stash to decorate bags, t-shirts, quilts etc. It is that easy and safe!

My choice of dies would be: quarter square triangles, hexagons and drunkard's path! Thanks!

Sherry W said...

I'm a new follower. Wonderful give away. Thank you.

luvqilts said...

Hi, I am a follower. This would eliminate my having to rotary cut hundreds of 2-1/2 squares, circles and cutting out letters. Thank you for hosting the Go Baby Giveway.

Gail said...

I'd love to win this Baby Go and I'm greatful for the opportunity to enter the give-away. How would it help me?

Well, I have a lot of scraps that I'd love to organize and cut into charm squares. I'd like to win the tumbler block, the circles and the Holiday Set. I'd use the tumbler block to make a charm quilt and the holiday set and circles to make a cute snowman quilt that I saw on the Accuquilt website! Geez this is so much fun. I'm crossing my fingers that I win! And yes, I'll be following!

Gail :)

Gari said...

I would love to win the GO Baby. I follow you on Bloglovin. The dies I would most like are Drunkard's Path, Winding Ways and Rob Peter to Pay Paul. I think I would do the more difficult to cut blocks if I could cut them with a GO.

Jamie Lee said...

I'm a follower.
I would bust through 2 baskets of scraps with the 3 1/2 inch tumbler die. That is the one I really, really want. I'd probably also get the circles because I'd like to make a raw edge circle applique quilt and maybe I'd pick something fun like the pumpkin!

Candace said...

Yes, I have followed you for years on Google Reader. I think the main thing that a go would do for me would be to neaten up my scraps and make them usable. I think they'd make great leaders and enders. I know the main dye that I'd like is the 2 1/2" strips, the other two, I'm not sure, but they would probably be basics that I would hope to get a lot of use from. Thanks for the opportunity to win, even if I don't, lol.

Anita said...

Hi Christine,
I'm an official folllower now, but have enjoyed reading your blog for quite some time now. I would use the GO Baby to cut up scraps for donation quilts. I would enjoy having the Tumblers, the Alpha Baby, and the Stars dies.
Thank you for a chance to win.
Anita

PatchworkRose said...

Hi Christine Of course I am a follower :-) What a sigh of relief at such wonderful news.
As a Scrap quilter the Go would be fantastic at cutting Half Square trianges and Star points or even sawtooth borders. Actually for many wonderful things.
The dies I would choose.
Definately Half Square Triangles, Saw tooth Star points and oh and quarter square triangles. I can see wonderful borders in a medallion quilt using these quick cutting dies :-)
Take Care
Big Hug
Lynne

Connie said...

I just started following your blog. I think a Go! would really help me use up my stash as I would do better cutting up fabric. I would love the 4" HST, the Drunkard's Path and Go Birds.

Lynn Brown said...

The 3 dies I would choose:
Tumbler
Circle
Hexagon

Catskill Quilter said...

I ama new follower. I love to do applique, and I think the Go Baby would make short work of cutting out appliques! My favorite dies are the funky flower, the Rose of Sharon, and the 2 1/2 inch strip.

JoyceM said...

I'm a follower. I have actually worked up blisters on my hand from cutting with my rotary cutter, so I know a Baby Go would be a blessing. Oh boy, choosing dies - hex, heart, and 1-1/2" strip. Thanks for the giveaway.

Darlene said...

I am so used to posting three different replies I didn't read your requirements right:
I am now a follower. There are so many quilts that I would like to make using fabric I already have in my stash that the go baby would help to make the blocks easier to cut especially on applique quilts. The three dies I would get would be the stars, hearts, and circles! Thanks for a chance to win!

Kathryn said...

I am one of your followers. I'd love to use it to cut up scraps into tumblers and make scrappy quilts. I love them the best. I'd love to win the Drunkard's Pathe, Tumbler and Square 2". So hard to pick. Kathie L in Allentown

Dorothy Thornton said...

I am a follower. The go baby would definitely help with the scraps from my quilts that seem to multiply. By cutting them quickly with the go I can save them in useful shapes ready for the next quilt instead of the three tubs (fixing to be 4) that they currently occupy. The dies I would choose are Fall Medley, the Holiday Accessories, and Dresden plates. Thanks so much for the chance at the giveaway.

Barb in Atlanta said...

I am a follower. I'm just getting started quilting, and don't have a huge stash or anything, but this will definitely help me get motivated and making more quilts.
The three dies I would choose are: hexies, circles and hearts. Of course, that selection changed 9 gazillion times before I settled on those three.

Jeanette said...

Love to win the baby go cutter. Yes i follow you now that i've found you. :) I'd use it to try & get my stash of fabrics down. The cutters i'd chose are the hexagon, double wedding ring & tumbler. Thanks for offering the chance to win. Happy Stitching

CatherineC said...

I am a new follower,I would love one of these Go Baby's to use up some of my fabric stash(of course to make room for more :)' lol....)
My picks for the dies would be Go Birds! Go! circles 2" 3" & 5" & the Go hexagons 2" 3" & 5"...
Thanks for the chance to win,wow what a giveaway..
cheers Catherine :)

I quilt for fun said...

I have been a lurker for months and as of today, I'm a follower. I think the GO would be great for my bins of strips -- 2" and 2.5" so I'd love any of the triangles that would help me get them under control and make a scrappy quilt at the same time.

Thanks, Jan

iquiltforfun@blogspot.com

Louise said...

I am a follower and I love your blog :) Louise

Melissa said...

New follower here!
If I won I'd choose:
Value Die with 2 squares and 1 HST
2 1/2" Strip Cutter
4" HST

I would use the cutter for my squares and triangles. The last quilt I made had all kinds of crazy mismatched seams from my poor cutting skills.

Camille said...

I'm a new follower. Glad to have stumbled across you in the big ol' blogland :)

I could cut out fabric without a template. Every time I try that they turn out looking like some odd interpretation of what shape they should be.

I'd use the 2.5 strip cutter, the squares and the drunkard's path.

deedee said...

First of all you ROCK to do this, yes I follow you.....and things have been pretty tight since my husband lost his job...and just maybe I can make some items to sell off of my huge investment with all my fabric,,,,my choice would be Hexies,circles,flowers ..I do wool and they would be get to do on Go Baby

circle retreat quilter said...

Hey there Christine, I would so love this little go Baby, I would love the 2 1/2 inch strip for binding and all sorts of wonderful, the triangle for flying geese and maybe the hexagon. thanks for being a top host. Stacey

Susie said...

Oh what a fun giveaway! :-)

I'm already a follower of your blog. I'm thinking that the Go! Baby would help me use my stash for the simple fact it would help cut down on "cutting time." I don't have time do really do any fabric cutting anymore and this would save SO much time.

The 3 dies I'd choose would have to be the Sparkle Diamonds, the Drunkard's Path and the 4" Quarter Square Triangle set (8 triangles). The possibilities are endless with these 3 I think!

Thank you so much for holding this giveaway but also allowing us to "celebrate" with you. (And what good news it was too!)

Phaye said...

Thanks for doing the give away.
I would make a thumbler scrap quilt
phgeiger

Barb said...

Oh, thank you so much for having this giveaway! I would be so happy to win; I have always wanted a GO cutter!

I am a follower!

I would choose the GO Fall, GO Holiday and the GO Birds!

I would love to use these to make quilts for others and use up some of my stash--I won't say all of it because I am not sure that is possible.

Thanks again!

Sasha said...

Hi Christine- it is so good to hear your news! And Salina Browne is gorgeous!! Thank you for having this giveaway- I am a follower and a baby GO! would definitely make my stash smaller and my quilt collection larger!!! I would love to win the tumbler, apple core and 2.5" strip cutters please!

Teresa Felgueiras said...

I'm a new follower. I like cutting fabric but i don't have a cutting table ( don't have space for one) so, a Go baby would be a great help.
My three dies would be the Tumbler, The Hexagon and the Drunkard's Path.
Thanks for the chance.

Candy Mak said...

I am a follower.
I think it will help shrink my current stash, then the stash will build and build and build and the UFO pile will grow too.
I like the birds, drunkards path and triangles.

Bree said...

HI
I'd love to win a go baby.
I think I'd like the Baby, hexagons and the dresden plate I think!

:)

Patchwork and Play said...

Great news! Have a glass of champagne to celebrate! Hexies and more hexies please! Oh, I'm a follower too!

Christine said...

I am a follower.
I think a Go Baby would help me use up all the scraps of fabric I have. I always save every scrap of fabric from my projects.
I would like the hexagon, apple core and tumbler dies.
Thanks for the chance to win such a fabulous prize.
