One Die Quilt with the AccuQuilt GO! Baby Fabric Cutter: Part 3

In our continuing story of the little landscape quilt  you see the versatility of the AccuQuilt GO! Baby Daisy die that is used with the GO! Baby Fabric Cutter.  The Daisy die is destined to become more than pretty flowers. No! Daisy is a die that produces a landscape with a mighty forest!

And speaking of mighty. Here is our mighty winner from yesterday of a GO! Baby Die: Denny of AZ. Congratulations Denny!

And now we shall complete our little landscape quilt and call it a day.  And, lucky you, this is also a day for another give away from AccuQuilt!

Here's How to Complete You Little Landscape Quilt:

  • Cut a circle around the big dot shape from another negative section of your die cut fabric.  Use a decorative blade to form the sun.
  • Place the sun on the background fabric and slightly off the edge.
  • Add a little dot to the center of the sun.
  • Fuse-tack into place.
  • After the fabric cools, remove the little landscape from the release paper.
  • Place in onto a framing fabric like the talented and friendly, Aquamarine. Fuse-tack into place.
  • Steam set the quilt top to the non-scrim side of the batting. (See Fusing Tips.)
  • Add hand embroidery just through the batting layer using some gorgeous hand-dyed threads.
  • Or add the backing fabric and machine quilt the quilt.
  • Bind the quilt.
Yes, we are finished with our quilt! But wait there's more! Tune in tomorrow to see how I use another AccuQuilt GO! Baby die and the GO! Baby Fabric Cutter. (There's another give away in store tomorrow too!)

And if you leave a comment on my blog today, you may be the lucky winner of an AccuQuilt GO! Baby die!

Oh my, now you are going to have me wanting yet another die! Honestly I hope you will be using one I already have - my wish list is too long already!

The Baby Go looks like it may be fun. Put my name in the hat. If I get a die I would have to buy a Go

I love your "out of the box" thinking. I'd really use these dies for an art quilt and can really see the unlimited possibilities! Oh boy!

Creative way to make a sun, and use the negative space. Just so cute. Can't wait till tomorrow.

Looks like fun!

You are so spontaneously creative. What a great little quilt idea.

I can see that what most people would call scraps is just another form of quilting supplies. :-) I love it!!

Again... all one can say, is "what's not to love?!"

Debbie said...

Can't wait to see what's in store for tomorrow, Laura. Are you going to eventually quilt/embroider this and show us what you did?

I never thought to use my wave blade to make suns, fun idea.

Debbie

How does one become spontaneous? Is that something you can really work on? Love the quilt!

Karen said...

So are you judging us for clever comments? I've run out of things to say, but I'd love to win.

Cherie in St Louis said...

How fun! I've been resisting the urge to buy a Go Baby as I keep thinking I would be excited at first and then not use ti. Now you have me thinking about buying one again!

Sew Loquacious Angela said...

The quilt looks super cute and that machine looks like a lot of fun to play with!

Jean said...

Great finish! Fun idea to use a flower for something completely different!

Stormy Days said...

Very nice, I've been thinking about your negative space and making plans. Cutting with the dies makes them perfect, but I'm going to try just free hand.

Chris Chambers said...

Looks like fun. Thanks!!

MJKasz said...

The sun always shines when Laura makes a quilt! Great ideas I am going to order flower dies today and start my garden.

SewLindaAnn said...

Fun, fun, fun little quilt. Love the inspiration for using simple shapes.

Maggie said...

That is very interesting.

Marcia W. said...

Just when I think that have seen it all, there comes the sun! Really like how this little quilt is moving along and of course, want to enter the drawing. As pretty as your lint looked, an baby GO! die is a primo prize.

Sewconsult said...

Little pieces of jewels.

Carolyn said...

I would love to win a die for the Go Baby I would to love to have.
Thanks

sanann said...

A terrific finish for the little quilt. I have looked at the system and if I won a die I could tell hubby I just have to buy it now. :) Think that would help? Sandi

Joy said...

What I love about your quilts is the size and no hot quilt on your lap or wrestling with the thing on the sewing machine, and using all the wonderful "scraps". The Go Baby looks like a lot of fun.

Estie said...

Very cute! I'm looking forward to winning something one of these times!

EileenKNY said...

The quilt is so interesting-I've never thought of using the negative pieces to make anything. I'm going to have to rethink my scraps.

Doreen K. said...

Count me in. I am drooling.
