I'm tired.  I love long weekends but for some reason I think I need to pack way too much into them.  So here's a little show and tell.

I ordered some new dies for my Accuquilt Go.  This is Robbing Peter to Pay Paul.  It does NOT lay flat.  I need to do some more practicing before making any serious blocks for a quilt top.  Very fun to do though.

Another new die for my Go.  This is Winding Ways.  I'm very shape challenged so this is all the further I got before I gave up for the night.  I can't figure out how to get the top 3 pieces on.  I don't think I made reverse pieces so I'm going to have to do some studying.

I quilted my Twister block.  I used Linda Taylor's Meandering Feather pantograph pattern (8 inch size).  I love how it turned out, but it's a little more involved than I like.  I don't know that I will ever use it again.
My Disappearing 9 Patch is now quilted.  Just  need to get the binding sewed on.  I used Linda Taylor's Inside Out pantograph pattern.  I absolutely love that pattern and will use it again and again.  Very forgiving and no quick stops and starts.  Great beginner pattern.
The next beauty is one that I quilted for a girl I used to work with.  She gave it to me on Thursday and asked if it would be possible to have done by Tuesday.  I did it.  I used Dizzy by Willow Leaf Studios.  I think it looks great on things that are very square.

Just have to share that the horseback riding lesson went well.  There will be another lesson this week.  I think there will be 4-H meetings in our future.
Because the kitties are having fun with the Accuquilt Go box, I thought maybe I should share those pictures too.

Have a great night!

Wow...those quilts are just lovely and the quilting as well.

I don't have either of those dies so I can't help you on those....

Everyone is getting in on the the cat playing with the box.

Great post Becky. And I love you cat playing in the AccuQuilt box. Too cute.

Excellent quilts. I don't have those AccuQuilt dies. But the community of bloggers with AccuQuilt is over 90, so I suspect someone will have experience with them...or someone will have done these the old fashioned way and may have some tips to share.

Love the quilting on Twister and the solids quilt. Perhaps kitty is trying to tell you to make a GO! cutter quilt for him/her.
