Pieces are Cut

I spent the day yesterday cutting out the pieces to my wall hanging.  I decided to keep using the batik fabric originally selected.  I think the second wash really cleaned out the dye.  There are a lot of pieces to this wall hanging.  I'm sure it can be made with larger pieces but I figured I would use my gifted go dies.  I probably won't begin any sewing today since DH is off work.  I'll begin sewing the blocks together on Saturday.

I used my Baby Go to cut out the pieces.  I'm not so sure I like this machine better than my full size Go machine.  My Baby Go just has a hard time starting the die out.  I usually don't cut a lot of layers of fabric either. I mean it doesn't easily catch the die to pull it through the presser.  I have to push with my leg, hold the top of the machine, and then crank the handle.  It's actually pretty funny to see :-)  If you have a Go Baby, do you have any problems starting your dies under the presser bar?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I just need to move the die with my left hand and crank with my right. No need to hold my machine here. Maybe you should contact them.
