Before I announce the winner of the Accuquilt Go! Cutter, I want to show you what my college daughter Kelli was busy working on over the weekend.
First off…I have to tell you that Kelli has been quilting for about a year now. She is an active quilter now, but she doesn’t have years of experience like many quilters. If we were at a quilt shop, looking at quilts on the internet, or in magazines, Kelli would QUICKLY say, “Curved seams, not gonna do it!”
Here she is cutting out the pieces…
Now the pieces are in the machine…tackling “that curve”. It was a breeze. One pin connecting the notches, position it in the machine, sew a couple stitches. Adjust, sew to the pin. Adjust and finish it all up.
In a short time….four blocks FINISHED!
Once those were finished, her comment was, “I need to buy more of this dark print fabric.”…meaning…she plans to make more blocks. All this from my…”Nope, curved seams!” girl. I’ve heard lots of quilters talking about the curve master foot for sewing machines….I’m investigating that. We didn’t have to pin a lot to do this but the curve foot might make it even easier….
We both decided that the hardest part is initially getting the pieces into the machine so the pieces are square.
Onto the winners… First I want to say, I wish everyone could receive an Accuquilt Go!. There were SO many emails from people making charity quilts, people who have just retired, unemployed, or people fighting illnesses or disabilities like MS and arthritis. I can see how a Go! would make quilting MUCH easier for you….Now onto the winners.
The winner of the trivet kit is…..
