    Are the blocks really challenging? My friend got me the book a couple years ago, and it's on my 'to do' list.

    My husband just gave me the Go, for our 49th anniversary and I am so excited. I have severe arthritis in my left thumb, so when I cut a lot I am in so much pain. Also I have ganglion cysts on both wrists, and after cutting the cysts fill up with fluid and they too are very painful. Just ordered the 1 1/2 and 2 1/2 strip cutters and once they arrive I will be able to cut out what I need for a baby quilt. I would be interested in hearing the experiences any of you have had with your cutters.

    I'm shopping for an accuquilt but aside from the size, what is the difference between the go and the go baby?

    I was just given my year, model 1X made in 1930(but I assume by the model number they are very similar machines) and the information is scarce but if I find anything I will do my best to relay anything I can find to you.

    My daughter said they found a great deal on Amazon that included the cutter and all the shapes, except the Hexagon one. They had to purchase that one separately. I am halfway finished with my first quilt using the 3.5 x 6.5 rectangle. When the top is done, I will choose another to try. I can see more tops getting done, more scraps being used.

    Happy birthday and congratulations on your nice gifts. I recently bought an accquilt and have just a few dies. I want more! Enjoy, and happy scrapping!

    That's awesome that you figured it out! I also have a Gammill (Vision 22-10) and have had to trouble shoot it on multiple occasions since it was delivered in May. I am feeling more confident all the time dealing with its intermittent issues.... But overall I love it!

    My goal is to make the Sister's Quilt Show. My son and DIL live in Coos Bay, but that is a good 4-5 hour drive across the mountain pass. I have thought of flying into Portland, driving to Sister's for the show then going by way of Eugene to Coos Bay. Seems like you can't get there from here easily. I live near Galveston in Texas, so the logistics are a bit of a problem. But one of these days...

    Yes, we are. We met almost 40 years ago (1975) and have been married for almost 31 years! I think we make a great pair - our daughter tells me that I must be nuts that he drives her crazy. I tell her that when she finds the right man, she will want to make him happy and that in turn makes her happy too.

    Leslie,

    It was beautiful in Oregon (or at least my house) today and should be again tomorrow. I was able to get my car cleaned out - did my husbands truck also.

    I have one last seam to sew for the body of the quilt - will need to figure out two borders and then start looking for a back. I will try to post a picture of what I have done so far tomorrow.

    What a great story! Good for you for persevering through all of that. Please do post a pic when you have the top done -- everyone loves to look at WIPs.

    I am jealous that you have a longarm. I think I would love one, but it's not in the cards. I did order a FMQ foot for my Viking, and will teach myself that soon. I am a pretty good piecer, but my machine quilting stinks!

    Hope you're having a good weekend. It is raining here today, which is good, because it's been very dry and we're in the woods, so the fire danger is very high.

    Leslie

    Jingle, this one may take some time - each block has 23 1" circles appliqued onto it in the form of a balloon bouquet - I have one completely done, one almost done, four more set up to applique and embroider the strings and six more to set up ...

    The directions were for the block only and it is from an antique quilt that is absolutely HUGE!!!! Mine won't be anywhere near the same size.

    No call from the library and the drawing was yesterday - must not have won back my quilt for my girlfriend ... I sure hope the person who won it is enjoying it ... it is meant to be used ...

    Please post how it worked - never done it before, but thought it sounded like a good plan ...
