Meg's Quilt and a Go! Baby GIVEAWAY!


Here is the quilt I created using the Accuquilt Go! Baby fabric cutter.  I originally blogged about it here.  This is for my "someday" baby girl.  I am not pregnant, nor will I be anytime soon, but I would love to have a little girl and name her Lola :)  Although honey is not on board with the name, I have my ways ;)


I've really wanted to use that citron green with grays and aqua, such a cool color combination.  Although the fabrics are girly, I needed to add the appliqué flowers to really make it pretty.


It's the prefect crib size, measuring 31" x 41".  

There's all sorts of fabrics in there, Heather Bailey, Michael Miller, MoMo for Moda...

I used a blanket stitch around the flowers.  Not quite sure how I'll quilt this, but I do know that I will not quilt it until after market :)


Next Thursday, May 5th I will be sharing a tutorial so you can make one too!  All of the piecing was cut with a Go! Baby fabric cutter, but you do not have to have one in order to create this.  I hope you'll come back and see :)

And the GIVEAWAY!


Your very own Go! Baby Fabric Cutter!  
$139.00 value

for mine I chose circles, 2.5" strips and the tumbler

Deborah in Atlanta said...

My favorite? Well, I've had a difficult time trying to come up with a favorite. I originally it would be the 2-1/2" strip since I use that size for all my bindings, and then I thought, well thats' not smart, because it's just straight cutting. So then I changed to hexies. Then circles. then I thought about the Sunbonnet Sue. So I guess those are the top favorites right now. Wow! Cool giveaway...someone is going to be thrilled when they get an e-mail from you saying they've won. Hope it's me!
