Giveaway (Go cutter 1", 1,5" and 2" fabric strips)

Thank you so much for all the comments. This give away is now closed.
The winner is Muddling Through. Elaine said: "Millie, you are the sweetest. I have wondered about the go strip cutter and am glad to have your opinion. I need to make a coin quilt, that is one I haven't done yet".
I wish I could give everybody something.
 I got a new Go cutter die to play with. It is the Go Strip Cutter 1", 1,5" and 2" die.
 I like to have a two day give away. 
6 yards of Christmas/holiday fabric cut up in 1", 1,5" and 2" strips can be yours.
I had so much fun with this new Go cutter die. I took a few yellow, blue and purple pieces from my stash and cut it up in the strips. It went so fast and the strips are very accurate.
 I also cut a few 2,5" strips from the same fabric as well as white sashing strips. Do you have a Go cutter die wish list? I do and the Go Cutter 2,5" die is on the top of my wish list.
 I made a Chinese Coin quilt from my strips. Not only was the cutting fast, but the sewing too.  I love Chinese Coin quilts. I quilted the top with a flower and leave panto.
  I cut about 6 yards of Christmas, red and green fabric in strips. I love my Go cutter. I will add the strings in a pink baggie for a String quilt. If you like to enter for this giveaway, please leave me a comment on this post.
I think these strips will make a beautiful Chinese Coin, Spiderweb, Rail Fence, Roman Stripe or Bento Box quilt. The strips are also perfect for a String quilt. Thank you so much for stopping by at my blog and good luck. I will pick the winner Monday.
Happy quilting,
Millie

You can never have enough Christmas quilts and one of my goals is to make a Christmas quilt for each of my 5 sons. Maybe next year....

Cutting strips is exactly what I would want to do if I got a GO cutter. It looks like you got over the learning curve in a hurry. Would love to win some Christmas strips!

Millie, you are the sweetest. I have wondered about the go strip cutter and am glad to have your opinion. I need to make a coin quilt, that is one I haven't done yet.

Michele T said...

I don't have a GO! but your enthusiasm is convincing!!! Toss my name into the draw... Some holiday fabric would be perfect for making table runners for gifts!

Fiesta said...

Thank you for the chance to add these to my charm quilt in progress

Larisa said...

wow!!! Please, count me in on the giveaway.

Kristy said...

Love your fabrics. The GO is so fun to use. Sometimes I get more excited about cutting than sewing. I would love this die for cutting out different sizes of strips all at once. Thanks for sharing how you used it. K-

debbie said...

Millie, I always enjoy seeing your latest string quilts. They are sew inspiring! I have done similar but a slightly different method. I live in Australia, so not sure I can enter your giveaway, but if I can, please count me in. xx debbie

I wish I had a go cutter! But... i did look for some christmas fabric in my stash yesterday and was amazed that I must never buy any! I couldn't make a christmas project!!! I would love the strips... im in the mood to make christmas things!

What a great post! I have a Go! Cutter, but not the strip dies - you have tempted me. Please include me in your give-away, it would be awesome to have a quick stash of strips.

Gill said...

What a fabulous giveaway!
Count me in please!

Sharon Hughson said...

I have been looking at the Go cutter and the bigger one also. I have found a Scan n Cut and that is next on my list to investigate. It looks like it will save some $$, b/c it does not require dies and can scan anything. I'd love to win the strips in the meantime. LOL

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

What fun and a perfect idea for a giveaway. Count me in and thanks so much for the chance!

Tammy said...

Wow, looks like the Go produces a lot of strips in a short period of time. Love your "Coin" quilt! Thanks for the giveaway!

Linda in PA said...

How generous of you! I'd love to win these strips. Thanks for the chance.

Anna McCurdy said...

I love coin quilts and have made a few of them. What a smart idea to use your go cutter for strips. I have often tried to win a cutter but have never succeeded so there it it is- It would be very useful to have for some cutting-
Thanks for the chance to win your lovely strips.
Regards from Alberta,
Anna

I'd love to relieve you of the excess strips! LOL I saw a quilt made in a rail fence fashion using the 3 different sized strips in different orders. It was a fun-looking quilt & I'd love to try it!
