Confession: I'm not much of a decorator. We have two little boys, so our house is highly, highly functional. It's nice, but no one is coming over to take pictures for your favorite homemaking magazine any time soon. None the less, every year, like clockwork, I am possessed with a desire to freshen things up as we head into the holidays. I'm sure it has something to do with how much more time we're spending inside, how many people we always seem to have over as friends come back to Atlanta to see family, etc, and, well, did I mention the holidays?

Pack Your Picnic with the GO! Fork-Knife-Spoon Die

Jul 3, 2019 8:16:15 AM / by Jennifer Strauser posted in Quilt Tutorial, GO! Getter, Limited Edition

4 Comments

Have you seen the new AccuQuilt GO! Fork-Knife-Spoon die (55261) yet? It is adorable. As soon as I saw it, a whole bunch of projects popped into my head. My favorite idea was a picnic quilt. I always loved going on picnics as a child. There is something so special about being able to have a casual meal while relaxing in nature. I’m a little bit more jaded as an adult - the logistics of a picnic get me worked up. It’s my own fault - I’m no longer satisfied with a PB&J and a juice box. I need fruit, crackers, cheese (and a cheese board and knife), maybe a charcuterie plate, some wine....

Tips for Creating Gender Neutral Baby Quilts PLUS 6 Outstanding Examples

Follow our blog with Bloglovin

Though gender reveal parties are a huge trend right now, some couples choose not to know what they are having before birth. While that’s an exciting surprise to look forward to, it can be pretty difficult to make a themed quilt ahead of the little one’s arrival. Or maybe you would rather stick to neutral designs for the nursery. Whatever the reason, a gender-neutral quilt can be the practical choice for a quilter who’s ready to welcome a new loved one into the world.

For many, Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer and picnic season. In fact, you might be one of the 60% of Americans who are planning a barbecue. Though the time with family and friends is a wonderful way to honor the federal holiday, the meaning behind it is even more important. The day is all about observing those who were lost while serving for their country. As a quilter, you're probably looking for ways to show respect and decorate your space with your talents.

There is absolutely nothing colorless about our love of neutrals! We’re wild for the way these subtle hues ground busy patterns and prints while making other colors pop. Being immediately drawn to more vibrant colors might seem easier, but the right mix of neutrals can wake up or add dimension to a palette, and even be bold and versatile all on their own. Why are we talking about the importance of neutrals in quilting? Aside from our love from earthy tones, they're also so important to making a quilt pattern look great.

Hi! My name is Kristina Brinkerhoff and I blog about my quilting adventures over at Center Street Quilts. I live in rural Utah with my husband and four young kids (ages 9 and under). I started quilting as a teenager and immediately fell in love with it. My first quilt was a pinwheel design made in 30s reproduction fabrics. I finished the quilt top during one summer break, but it took me several more years (around 8 years actually) to get around to quilting and binding it! These days, I'm usually a little faster at finishing my projects. ;)

Easter might still be a few weeks away, but we're gearing up for the season by sharing a project that will look great all through spring!

Hi, everyone! This is Mona Phelps from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I started sewing and quilting a little over two years ago. As soon as the sewing bug hit, the desire for all the fabrics followed. As I’m sure many of you can relate, I started stocking up on various fabrics – “building my stash,” if you will. I realized at the end of 2017 that I needed to try to focus on using the fabric I have on hand instead of shopping every time a new project came along.

Today I’m sharing a product review of the Accuquilt Ready. Set. GO! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System. While I was recently sent this terrific new product by the folks at Accuquilt, all opinions expressed in this post are my own. And I do love the Accuquilt GO! system for cutting fabrics for quilting. I’ve been using the 2 1/2″ strip cutter included with the package to trim up some of my scraps over the past few days. Using the GO! system helped me make some good progress on my scrap management which is always a good thing.

Today’s tutorial uses the new GO! Carefree Alphabet Lowercase Set (2 die set) #55491 die and the free alphabet machine embroidery designs that can be downloaded from Accuquilt.com. This is not your typical pieced or embroidered quilt design and allows one to add their own personal design touch to the project.

AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and GO! Qube Review / Patchwork Stockings

Nov 29, 2018 9:00:00 AM / by Nicole Daksiewicz posted in GO! Product Tutorials, Ready. Set. GO!

3 Comments

Hi friends,

When the team at AccuQuilt asked me last month to try out their AccuQuilt GO! machine I was excited about the chance to play and see if I felt any different about this product versus other fabric cutting machines I have tried in the past. I am very familiar with die cutting, having worked on a design team for a while and also having the opportunity to try other brands over the years. Not totally sure if this would be any different, any more helpful or useful than the other brands I am familiar with (hint, it's different and so so good!).

Fresh Lemon Quilts Reviews the Ready. Set. GO!

Nov 27, 2018 8:30:00 AM / by Faith Jones posted in GO! Product Tutorials, Ready. Set. GO!

7 Comments

If asked to choose, I would guess that everyone has a different favorite part of quilting.  For some it's cutting, for others it's piecing.  I have several friends who love the quilting aspect.  I haven't heard anyone say basting is their favorite though... ;)  For me, it's definitely designing.  I have dreamt up many quilts, but sometimes I've been intimidated by the level of detail or amount of cutting required for the design.  Or even just the repetition of cutting so many tiny pieces.  When AccuQuilt contacted me last month and asked if I'd like to review their GO! Fabric Cutter, I jumped on the opportunity.  I've been using the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter for a few weeks now, and I'm excited to report my thoughts.

Hi, it's Carolyn Beam. I'm excited to share What a Hoot!—this 3D owl that I made with my grandson using the GO! Me.

One thing that makes What a Hoot! so much fun for kids is that they can personalize their owls however they want—add fun details like a heart or flower or change the owl's expression just by changing the position of the eyes.

GO! Crazy Quilt Star for the Holidays

Welcome to the  GO! Big Crazy Quilt-10" Finished Block on Board ® (BOB ®). This BOB is crazy fun and easy. Already I have made three crazy quilts with this die—and I love it. The packaging on the die has some great ideas for Crazy Quilt variations. One of the suggestions is to mix the Crazy Quilt blocks with a pieced quilt block. This die makes a finished 10" quilt square. That means it will work with the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10" Block. With that idea, I made the Crazy Quilt blocks and also made some classic Square in a Square Blocks using a set of RJR Sparkle Fat Quarters. The finished quilt is 40" x 40".

Hi, it's Marjorie and I'm sharing a quilt I made with the GO! QUBE™ Mix & Match 10" Block, the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Angles and the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Corners. Adding the Companion Qubes to the Mix & Match Qube creates a wealth of possibilities for quilts and especially for adding pieced borders. The 72 block brochure for the Qube Angles Companion Set and the 72 block brochure for the Qube Corners Set is the perfect starting point. It only takes a block or two from these pattern brochures to create a beautiful quilt. In this post, I will show you how I used a single block from the companion set - angles for the center blocks and added just the Bow Tie from the Corners Qube with a Flying Geese unit to create the pieced border.
