Blazing Star cont'd

Out came the GO cutter and my 2 1/2 "
strip die. Now I found that when I rolled from left to right with my left hand that seemed smoother. I did find that I had to place my fabric just so or the strips were not completely cut.
Once I got that sorted out I began to cut out 1 1/2" strips for my inner border. Once I had them in place I cut my 2 1/2 " blocks die that came free with the GO. I made sure I cut lots of those they always come in handy...
I first sewed on the outside 2 1/2' strip to the top and bottom. Then on went the 2 1/2 " corner blocks to the other 2 1/2" strips to complete my sides. Now my pillow top measures 18" square.

Oh I have been having so much fun using my Go.
These were some questions asked by fellow bloggers. How hard was it to roll? EASY
Would you recommend the GO. DEFINITELY
Would you continue using your go. YES

Hmmmm, what will I cut out next....
until next time
