Oh, heart be still! I'm am swooning! Custom dies for the GO! I've been dying for this option since the beginning of my GO! die obsession! You'd better believe I hopped on that bandwagon as soon as I opened the e-mail notification.
I've been especially craving a die for my FQs that I can cut multiple shapes from in one pass for my scrappy quilts. I love me my scrappy quilts! Yep, I've already submitted my prototype (using my trusty EQ7 program) -- here it is:
I know you're eyeing that 1/2" strip and going "hmmmm" since there would be nuttin' left over after 1/4" seams, but they will be used in string quilts and I will use tiny seam allowances. I didn't want anything to go to waste.
The overall size of the blades will be 8-1/2" wide by 21-1/2" long, so I'll just have to fold my FQs in half once and I can cut 3 FQs in one fell crank. I didn't want to make it 9" x 22" in case the FQs are cut a smidge too small. So whatcha think?
I think I'm in looovvveee!
P.S. I see another FQ die in my future utilizing brick shapes and half-square triangles...(*fans self*)
