    Okay....not really. Or even close. But HELLO and thanks for looking at my post.

    New to quilting, but got into whole hog. I purchased a Kenmore 19233. And after trying to cut out my first quilt and not doing very well I broke down and purchase an Accuquilt Go!

    So now I'm off and running. I have 2 quilts under my belt and needless to say the first one was HORRENDOUS! Second one was much better.

    So just wanted to pop in and say hello!

    You know it's funny, I got it from ebay with a free 2 1/2 strip die for only $200....so I think I got a STEAL!

    It really does make things SUPER quick and easy to cut out your blocks.

    I started out making a baby quilt and now am finishing up a quilt for a fund raiser. But after that I am really excited to try something a little more tricky than just 5 inch squares. :)

    Welcome from the greater Los Angeles Area. Love your sense of humor (or is it ambition?). I'd love to see pictures of your progress in quilting.

    Welcome from Alabama. I'm sure the first is not as bad as you think it is. Our quilts always look worse to us than to others, since we know where the errors are.

    Welcome. I shop in Cedar Rapids. I like Connie's Quilt shop and Pine Needles and sometimes go on to Heritage Designs in Amana and Rainbows and Calico Things near Williamsburg. All are great shops.

    Welcome! I can "rent" an Accuquilt cutter at a quilt shop in Dubuque.I used it to cut the squares for a rag quilt. no clipping the edges after it was sewn together. Fastest I ever completed a quilt. She also had a heart cutter so I put hearts on the quilt too!
