It's a GO!

It's a GO! If your confused on why I am showing you these basket blocks than you have missed hearing my frustrations of how to attach the handle and you need to see my previous post for the video tutorial. These were made using my GO! and the Bountiful Baskets die. Now that I have a "handle" on making these I'll make many more blocks. I can officially say I am glad I own this die for my GO! The only thing left to do is to hand or machine stitch the top side of the handles down.

Oh my, they turned out great! I don't have a "GO", so I will follow Alex's cutting directions to make one.

glad you figured it out

Not sure what the directions were, but in my mind, I was thinking handles are sewn on top, lol. I tend to figure things out by playing with them and doing what works;)

Very cute! A big quilt of only these will be so nice! I'm glad you got it worked out too.

Thanks for asking and sharing with us Mary! It's a great way to make the handles look perfect every time.

Those are really cute...I'm glad that you solved this. A whole quilt filled with these blocks would be so beautiful!!

In stitches,
Teresa :o)

I really like the postage stamp baskets!! They are the reason (well, at least ONE reason LOL) I want a Go! :-D Yours turned beautifully!
Blessings,

Very cute. For some reason these handles sure sound like they are challenging to everyone. Hymm. Wonder what we (Bloggers with AccuQuilt products) can do to help de-mystify this. Hymm.

I just finished this quilt (still a top) I love these baskets! I did it the old fashioned way though; a GO would be such a time saver!

Cindy said...

I watched Alex's tutorial you tube she did and it sure makes applying the basket handles alot easier when you SEE it done. If more GO basket die owners would watch that little tutorial of Alex'a, I think it'd clear the "handle" issue up.

Millie said...

Mary, they turned out great. You lucky girl to own your own Go.

Lori said...

In the end your baskets turned out adorable!!!

Love the Robyn Pandolph fabrics. Still have a few that I don't want to cut. The baskets are adorable!

Shelley said...

Watched the tutorial and it explains the method well but still friggy perhaps.

Barb said...

Turned out wonderfully...and her tutorial is just what was needed, makes it alot easier. Thanks for the infor and the ability to search something out.

Loris said...

They look lovely! Will have to check out the tutorial.

What cute basket blocks. I hope to have a GO! some time in the near future - I'm envious!

Carrie P. said...

they look great and I am glad you got it figured out.

Barb said...

They look great!!
