And I had SO much fun cutting fabric yesterday!! I bought the dies for the 5 inch squares (charm squares) and the circles. The circle die was an impulse decision for which I am VERY happy I made. As others have noted, the one draw back to the cutters is fabric waste. I discovered, that when I fold my fabric to be about 6 inches and then run it through the cutter, there are are left over strips...but they look perfect for making string quilt blocks. (Like I needed more strings!!) At times, there will be pieces of uncut fabric left over which are bigger than the strings. I discovered the medium and small circles make quick work of those pieces.
I am so happy with my Go Baby, that it's tempting to have a "Baby Shower" and invite all my quilting friends over and take turns cutting up fabric...and then let them take home their favorites!! Hmm...a good de-stashing idea! Or if I had more friends who had the Go Baby, we could EACH bring our cutters and stash...and swap our cut fabrics!! Wouldn't that be fun?
I do have one confession about my Go Baby cutter. It reminds me of a variation of a Jack-In-The-Box. My son, Big Boy, and I have taken to singing the song "Pop Goes The Weasel" as we turn the handle...only we have changed to the words to "Pop Goes The Charm Square" or "Pop Goes The Charm Circle"!!
I hope you find reason to celebrate as you go through your weekend! And, maybe throw in a little decluttering while you are it. It's nice to be able to have a flat surface to work on while sewing. Trust me. I know. I have very few of those in my home. They all seem to attract stuff. My theory is gravity surges in certain areas of my house.
