When I was in junior high I had to sew an a-line skirt for class. I tried, but it didn't turn out very well to say the least. I was allowed to work on it at home. My dear sweet Mother saw the mess I had made, so she made the skirt for me.
Halloween is around the corner and it is time to break out the Spooky Décor. We are also so excited to share my husband, Matthew’s newest fabric collection, Booooville from Benartex. The collection features a panel with Gnarly the tree getting ready to go trick or treating with his ghost friends. So this month I used my GO! Qube Mix & Match 6” Block Set and my new GO! Qube 6” Companion set to create a sweet and spooky wall hanging using part of the panel for the center and the corners. I used all the new dies from the Companion set to create whimsical borders to go around the tree. This left eight extra ghost panels, so I used an assortment of dies and fabrics to create a matching set of four placemats.
Quilters often joke about being identifiable by the threads that are often (always) dangling off of their clothing. Did you know the same thing can happen to your cutting dies? Over time, threads can become embedded in the grooves of the GO! Dies. When this happens you may start to notice that your die is not cutting as cleanly as it once was, it may start skipping over sections, or you may not be able to cut as many layers of fabric at once.
Greetings fellow quilters and sewists! My name is Belinda Karls-Nace and I'm a quilting and needlework designer, creator, finisher, and teacher (and the author of the Samplings from a Blue Ribbon Girl blog). Today, I am back as an AccuQuilt blogger to talk about the GO! Qube 9" Companion Set-Classics and share my Jewels and Vines Table Runner project tutorial.
