GO!-ing, GO!-ing, DONE!!


I quilted and bound the tumbler Halloween quilt I showed in earlier posts.  I cut out all the tumblers using my Accuquilt GO! 6 1/2” tumbler die.  And boy, was it quick and easy and TOTALLY pain-free!  I HATE cutting out quilts, so what a joy it was to cut out this quilt!!


I started with 8 fat quarters then added tumblers from stash yardage, and my Halloween scrap bin.  What a good way to use up scraps!!  :-)


It’s only 110 degrees outside here today in the DC area, so photographing this out on the deck is burning my bare feet!!  YIKES!!


And Yogi was quick to go inside this time…the heck with squirrel watching in this heat!!


I do love the backing fabric, too!  I cut out a goofy Jack O’Lantern from my stash and used it for the label!  Gotta love that grin, right?


SOOOOOOOO… ya think you might like to see how easy it is to cut out a quilt on a GO Baby?


Stick around…’cause Accuquilt has given me one to give away! And, three dies, too!!   So, Stay tuned!!



  1. I just love how this quilt turned out! It was 108 in Kansas today which is starting to become the norm. I am sooooo ready for fall.

  2. what a darling quilt, and such a great way to use up stash fabric and scraps! Love that binding too! Your dog is too cute and looks great on the quilt!


  3. I LOVE THAT QUILT! & the pics with made me giggle!

  4. What a cute quilt, everyone needs a halloween quilt right? A couple of years ago I made one just to throw over the chair for decoration. I imagine Yogi's little paws get hot also. Day 20 with themp at 100 or above here in N. Texas. No rain in sight and the heat continues.

  5. Beautiful quilt Polly. And Yogi looks great in this lovely Halloween quilt too. You've inspired me to make a Halloween Quilt.....but I'll need to hire Yogi to come model for me.


  6. Love it!! And the label. These are definitely Yogi's colors!

  7. What a great quilt! I have a stash of Halloween fabric, I think I may copy you. :)

  8. Your quilt is so cute - I love the back almost as much as the front!!

  9. It is a very fun Halloween quilt- You had some terrific fabrics to use in it. I think it turned out great. Thanks for sharing your lovely piece.
    The Go sure looks like a fun machine- I will watch for your giveaway.

    I have not made a Halloween quilt- perhaps some day- I need to collect more fabrics if I want to make one of those ones.

  10. Its so cute! and so is the quilt. I love it! That accuquilt seems so stress free.

  11. Gorgeous - love the Jack O' Lantern on the back, that tumbler certainly makes a fantastic quilt. I don't like the cutting out part of quilting either. Yogi is certainly a very obliging model :)

  12. The quilt is awesome - and I believe that is was fun cutting the fabrics this time.

    110 Degree...... can we share??? We only had 53 this moring and 60 about lunch waaaay to cold for this time of year :-(

  13. Love it! I have the tumbler die and you have inspired me to use it once again! Love that spook-tacular Halloween quilt!!!

  14. That sure is the back! Yogi sure seems to like it! Stay cool!

  15. Hi Polly,

    Oh, the quilt is wonderful, both sides. Love it.

    And of course I love seeing Yogi "trying out" "his" new Halloween quilt. (o:

    Both of you be careful in that extreme heat.

    Heaps of Hugs and Happy Weekend

  16. Love the quilt! Yogi was an excellent model too.

    My one pup loves to sit in the backyard and sun no matter how hot it is. He's a true Florida pup. Me, summer is for indoor activities!

  17. Very cool quilt. Halloween fabrics are some of my favorites.

  18. Wonderful quilt! You are so darn speedy. Cannot wait to see what you make next.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
