It came with two dies. A hexagon and a circle. I've used both a lot!
So I was completely thrilled when I received their newest collection of dies a couple weeks ago! They're called the Stash Buster dies and I think they're going to be a hit!
I have always wanted to make a quilt in the Hunter Star pattern. In fact several years ago, I bought a pattern and fabric. It sat in my closet for like forever... I was a little intimated by the pattern I think, and I wasn't hopelessly in love with my fabric choices either... Eventually it all made it's way to the donation pile and has been long gone for a while now.
So... when I opened the box of dies and saw a Hunter Star die... I did a little happy dance!
You can use this die on either the regular size GO! Cutter or the GO! baby Cutter. When you combine four blocks it creates the Hunter Star in a 12" finished block. The die was created to create one 12" complete block in two passes. It's pretty cool!
I decided to start with a Table Runner to see how it went. And it went really well! So much in fact, I made a trip to the fabric store and bought enough fabric to make a whole quilt!
It's such a classic pattern. Timeless and a great two color quilt. Can you believe I don't have a red and white quilt! Not one... So I'm super excited to make this one.
I backed it and bound it with a super cute red and white snowflake print from Henry Glass fabrics.
The Table Runner was super easy. Oh! I forgot to mention how awesome this block sews together! Seriously. The way the pieces are cut... it just goes together perfectly and super fast too!
I've also thought about a different color/fabric combination and I'm hoping I'll have some time this winter to try it out. I'll let you know when I do...and how it goes!
I think I'm even more in love with my GO! baby !! And I'm excited to try the other dies. I'll share some more project with ya, when I do!
