Feeling Raggy? Baby Go Makes Being Raggy, well… Fun!

A follow up to a previous process post… Here is the finished product.  Ella and I used our Baby Go! to cut our raggy fabric with yummy colors and milky white backing…

We had fun and make a great mess cutting our fabrics… Then we pieced 20 blocks into a pattern to make a cherished gift.  It is smaller than expected but now we know to use more blocks for a bigger piece.  It will be a great cuddle piece for just the right baby!

Go Baby Go! My New Tool and Love… Pink and Green! Woohooo! So QUTI!

Ella says “Wow, mama, what a fancy pink bag-can I have it?”  Heeeellllloooo!  No, silly this is for our Baby Go!  Our what?  Not every bag that comes through these doors is shared with a 5 year old girl ya know! Why not? she says…Nevermind…go play with your Barbies sweet girl!

So here it is, organized so beautifully in the perfectly matched (great marketing Accuquilt!) bag for the self proclaimed, bag hag!

I love the roomy pockets, the multiple sections and I feel soooo organized and sassy!

I fun and purposeful tool!  Stay tuned for more posts and projects using my wonderful BabyGO!

I know, I know… like I needed another thread of fabric… let alone more flower pins!!!

I just couldn’t resist!  Lame, I know… I was shopping with the family this past weekend for random house stuff (well, if I label it stuff, do you really think one needs it?)… Linda, focus, oh yes… back to the story.  There was a fabric and notions section in a nameless large box retailer – wooo hooo! I sooooo got in trouble – a new sewing box (well it was bigger and more “alive”), flower pins (yes, in new luscious colors I didn’t have, come on-a must have, right?) fat quarters (really Linda?), fat quarters for the 5 year old (ugh!-the fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree, right?), and other “stuff” in the cart, 30 minutes later.  Thank god my son and husband came or it could have been worse as I didn’t have the chance to touch all of the fabric bolts!!!

So, here are some of the fat quarters with my luscious flowers pins~!  So if quilting is my therapy, perhaps I need a new treatment regime?  :-)

I am thinking that I will make a rag quilt with these fat quarters, I have the flannel and the new die for my Baby Go!  Fun!

Now, of course, I don’t even have a baby to make this quilt for but it will be fun making it!

If you make it, it will come… eeek! What am I saying?  I have all the wonderful children I can handle!!! Ha!

Geeezzzzz… everything seems to have another QUTI purpose!

Ok, I was at Safeway, yes, the grocery store, the one I frequent for the staples of life… milk, eggs, fruit, oh wait…. the impulse isle-a fabric throw made of recycled material! $6.99 what a deal? and for a 60×60 piece of fabric-come on quilters, don’t you agree?  Being impulsive and a little ADHD, yes… I bought it!

Feeling righteous for buying an eco-friendly product, and oh so thrifty (it is so not me, but I am trying), I thought I could embellish it with my new Baby Go! Did I say I was impulsive and a little ADHD?  A friend gave me a beautiful Amazon Gift Certificate and I got my frivolous and all important new quilting tool.  Okay, I am sorry, Baby Go, you are not frivolous, you are a tool.  I stand corrected… yes, by myself.

Okay, I digress, or progress, who knows… I pulled out the Baby Go for the first time- WOOO HOOOO!  Geez… a little cute girl thought it was fascinating as well… Ahhh, another “teachable moment” – that is my new code phrase.

Focus Linda.  Okay, but isn’t she cute?  I so love her… Yes, Ella primarily and yes, also the Go Baby…

Onto the project, right?  I pulled out the eco-find and decided to Eva Bernina the flowers (it seemed to so tropical and fun) to embellish with these great pops of color.  Oh, and of course, the colors are so our QUTI colors-yes, I have QUTI on the brain!!!

The sick part of this story is I woke up in the middle of the night and had to sew the binding.  Yes, you “heard” that right.  After sleeping for four hours, I woke up at 1 and sewed until 3:30am… I must seek professional help I am sure!!!!  I even talked to myself and said “Linda, this is lame… why are sewing in the middle of the night? and why can’t you stop?”  I said, back to myself, “Well, I just need to finish the binding so I can feel like I accomplished something.”  “Oh,” I said, “That’s lame.”  I said, “Yes, it is but it is soooo me!”

Well, there it is… just four flowers and my beautiful binding!
