Thanks for the link Margaret...I just might have put a sizzix die through the Go to test it but I won't be doing that now...

Cheerio,

Margaret your person on your link is correct - I put a sizzix die through the Accuquilt before I read this and the blades from the sizzix die went through the go mat and I had to send for a new mat.

So sizzix dies do go through the go machine but they ruin the go mat!!!

But I still like the go machine

thought I would use the apple core die today to make Natalie a quilt, cutting out only took a few minutes, deciding on the layout nearly an hour and sewing them together ????????? gave up after 2 rows.will start afresh tomorrow so hopefully won't take too long.smiley

Good luck, Mandy! At a Show and Tell last week I described joining the rows as a swine! Here is a photo of my throw made to cover the seat and arms of my sofa. It is 88" long by 22". Luckily I decided to join it across the short rows! Joining the individual cores was a doodle - pin at each end and one in the middle and machine. I gave up on joining the rows by machine and hand stitched them instead. I then used a fancy machine stitch to quilt over the hand sewn seams.

This is the only way that I could photograph all of it. It's come out squashed on here. Please click on photo.

I like this looks nice and cosy. Love the colours to.

I would have thought it hard to sew to

Thant's lovely Margaret and that is just how I would descibe the sewing together, I think I have done 7 across and 9 high but have only completed 2 rows and haven't sewn the together yet but I did wonder if sewing by hand would be better.frown

I have just bought the Sizzix Big Shot. Only bought the hexagon die so far as I am in a hexie swap and have become addicted to the darn things. I'm doing 1" hexies. Giving me something 'mindless' to do which is all I feel like doing at the moment. Hopefully after the lovely break I have just had I might get around to doing something more interesting.

That sounds lovely Di, nothing wrong with a bit of hexagon addiction. What have you made with them so far?
