Go! Baby give away


Hurrah! You perhaps know from my last two posts that I've rather fallen in love with the Go! Baby fabric cutting machine that Accuquilt kindly sent for me to play with a few weeks ago, so I'm delighted that they've also offered me the opportunity to give one away to you too.


It's a really fantastic package as if you win you'll receive: the Go! Baby machine; your choice of any three dies, from Drunkard's Path, to Half-Square Triangles (I think there are about 200 hundred to pick from); and the cutting mats that you'll need to use with them.

For your chance to win, just leave me a comment. It's not part of entry and won't double your chances of winning, but if you fancy saying something other than hello, then maybe you could leave a link to your favourite blog or just something fantastic that you've seen on your trawls recently, be it an amazing quilt, or a stunning handmade summer dress - it would be lovely to have a hand-picked fresh dose of eye candy and inspiration.

  1. Hi Mrs Teacakes! I'd love to win this so here is my entry, and here is my inspiration.

    I'm taken with her kids nature bags - would it be wrong to make one for myself (I'm 36!)??!

  2. Hello! I have been drooling over this machine since I first read about it here.

    My current favorite blog is http://www.younghouselove.com/
    It is super refreshing to see young people doing amazing things with their home for not so much money. They make buying an older house that needs work, the cool thing to do :)

    Hope you enjoy it, too!

  3. I've fallen in love with the photos of flowers on this Australian blog

    http://piecesofcontentment.blogspot.com/

    I can easily see how handy a machine like this would be. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Oh this machine is amazing! I've loved what you have been making with it so far - can't wait to see more!

    This is my one of the blogs I'm finding really inspirational at the moment -
    http://thisiscolossal.com/
    its an amazing art and design blog and is so different to a lot of the blogs I read but brilliant x

    ReplyDelete
  5. Ooh, I think this would help speed up my plans to make more quilts!

    I suggest a visit to the Purl Bee blog - http://www.purlbee.com/. There's lots of sewing, knitting and crochet projects and tutorials, but they also have a mini quilt of the month series. I particularly love the April vegetable patch quilt.

    I long to go back to New York so I can visit the Purl shop itself!

  6. I know I probably shouldn't comment on my own give away post, but I just wanted to say, Nicky, how much I love those nature bags - thank you so much for the link! I think I may make one for my daughter - and no, I think 36 would be a perfectly acceptable wearer's age too!

    Kate Eliza - thank you too... oh dear, I could get stuck in their archives for a very long time - inspiring!

    Thank you for the wonderful links. x

  11. I would love one of these! Especially after reading your reviews.

    The most recent thing I've starred on my blog feed was Nette's 'candy sundress'

    http://nettevivante.blogspot.com/2011/07/guest-post-at-icandy-diy-candy-sundress.html

    I love the neckline she's come up with.

  12. Can't think of a blog that's jumping out at me, there are so many I follow (including yours) but I'm loving this line of fabric. It's everything my 3 year old daughter is in love with this summer. Pinwheels, hopscotch, bikes. Just love all of it!

  14. Goodness Louise, that's an amazing website - I've just watched the animated rabbit video which was stunning. I must pass this one on to my husband as I think he'd love it too.

    Sorry if it seemed as though I were ignoring some of the suggestions - your comments have come in so quickly that more had appeared before mine by the time I published my comment.

    Thank you again for the links though! x

    ReplyDelete
  15. Ooooo I would love this (like the others wouldn't, right? haha)...
    I've been perusing their dies and would have such a hard time choosing.... I like the one that looks like an apple core, but also the tumbler one. Lovely giveaway!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ohhh I've been eyeing these cutters for a while now. Lovely.

    Also, I stumbled across this additional bit of lovliness lately and am entranced. Her writing is as simple and gorgeous as her sewing.

  17. This has been the coolest thing I've seen this week:

    http://www.austinkleon.com/2011/06/30/new-20x200-print-what-is-marriage/

    It'd make a great quilt, don't you think?

    ReplyDelete
  22. yay this is great!

    If you haven't checked out Pintrest yet, you totally should. Plenty of eye candy over there. You create little boards with your favorite pictures and can save and repin others. Here are my boards http://pinterest.com/kittycait/

    Of course, Pinterest. Love the unlimeted inspiration on it!
    Also, I saw in your last post that you were after quilting tips. Chain piecing really speeds up the process, you simply feed on piece through the machine as the other finishes. It saves thread and it so much quicker and easier!!Have fun on you ltest quilting endeavours (:

  40. I would very dearly love to win a Go Baby

    I'm taken with quite a few bloggers but Jimmy McBride is one the the more offbeat and remarkable ones
    http://intergalactictransport.blogspot.com/

    He upcycles fabric into truly amazing pieces and then hand quilts them. I'm constantly amazed at his skill, ingenuity and vision and will make a bee-line for his blog during time out.

    Hope you like it too

  44. Ooooh boy! You'll get loads of comments. Who wouldn't want a chance to play with a machine like that? The squares from your previous post are lush.

  45. Awesome-- I was just telling my coworker about the gorgeous quilt you're blogging about!!

  47. Hello....how kind of you to share nicely! As a kind of PIF, if I won I would pass it on to another overexcited stitcher after I had had my fill. I spent a large part of my day (when I should have been doing sums at work) dreaming of all the lovely things I could make and laughing (and shedding a tear) at pings and needles's blog.... Brilliant! X

  48. I do love a give away, especially one as amazing as this one! Thanks for the opportunity and Happy Sewing!

  49. Oooh, me me me! I'd love to win this, that way I don't have to continue persuading my husband that he needs to buy me one! Feminine guile doesn't work as well when you are in the fat face and swollen ankles stage of pregnancy!!
    One of my favourite blogs for quilts is this one:
    http://dontlooknow.typepad.com/dont_look_now/
    She makes THE most gorgeous appliqué quilts and cushions that are to die for. One of these Go! Baby cutters would make one of these quilt designs so much more accessible to the likes of me!
    ps. I am really enjoying discovering even more crafty blogs to waste my time reading thanks to all these comments!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Enjoy reading your blog for inspiration and another suggestion I enjoy is http://www.saucysprinkles.com/ This lady is truly enjoying her life, her family and especially her beautiful teenager and her friends. Her blog inspires me in the kitchen and the craft room.

    Maybe a Baby Go will inspire me further :-) so thanks for giving us the chance to win.

  51. Hi Flossie. I'd never heard of this machine but now that I have I'm thinking I need one!

  146. Hi there Flossie, I would love to be in with a chance of winning the Go Baby, I've been drooling over your blog and those of other sewing geniuses for so long but have never actually made anything as I get paralysed by the fear of miscutting all the lovely fabric and getting squiffy results. This would actually spur me into making stuff instead of just buying pretty fabric!

    As for inspiration, at the moment I'm totally smitten with the sewing patterns from Citronille. I think you would like them too.

    I have been sneaking peeks at your blog for more than a year - it is a lovely pick-me-up - and encourages me to fit in my sewing and making as well as work! I'd love to win the Go Baby but even if I was to be so lucky I don't think it would be possible to receive it in Australia? Anyway I'm commenting just in case. I don't have any craft link at the moment, but http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ is a great place to visit if you want a moment of commiseration (and laughs) when something hasn't turned out quite as you'd hoped.

    I have been sneaking peeks at your blog for a while now - it is a lovely pick-me-up and encourages me to make the time to fit in sewing and making with work and family!

    Till that time I will continue to drool over "Go baby" and have a happy dream about this machine Bernina 830LE (http://www.berninausa.com/content-n993-sUS.html) which cost a whopping 13,000 USD.
