I love how they come out, I've pulled away the excess and look how nice these quarter square triangles look.
They stitch up like a dream. I didn't know if I'd like the little nipped off corners but I can't believe what a difference it made in my piecing.
Something else I've always wanted to try is an applecore. Of course I'm NEVER going to cut out all those pieces by hand, or even with a rotary cutter.. my attention span is pretty limited. But running it through the Go! Baby was a dream. And I love the little notch for matching. It just took seconds to pin and stitch those two together. You can see my dilemma now.. what to use the rest of my Bliss for, hour glass blocks or applecore. Now if I was whispering in Accuquilt's ear, I'd say a smaller applecore, like a 3inch, would be DREAMY. You know, like the tumbler blocks and the drunkards path, big and small. In fact Famous Deb Silva was working on the 3 1/2 inch drunkards path at sew day and I was so envious. No pictures though, what was I thinking?
I did make this runner last week! I know! ME MAKING STUFF! I used the Rose of Sharon flower blocks in a simple strip pieced runner. Now a strip pieced runner is not my invention, you'll find a million variations all over the place. I'll give you the details in my next post. SO MUCH TO READ ALL AT ONCE. But what fun it was to cut all kinds of different flowers (with fusible web already on the back) and pile them up. This might be my favorite die of all.. flowers in all sizes, leaves, circles.. perfection.
So there you have it.. my tons of Accufun in one giant blog post!!! Talk about Go! Baby!
