Oh, oh, oh......

I was so excited I almost peed myself!!!



Vicki from The Pickledish Patch had this giveaway and I was so lucky to have won....

The dies I chose are:

 the 5 1/4" Rag Square.... I just love raggy quilts but I HATE cutting all the raggies.... now I don't need to!!!

the 6 1/4" Apple Core .... I always fancied doing an Apple Core quilt but really a bit lazy about cutting those rounded edges.... now I don't need to!!

the Rick Rack.... I love the curved edges.. but again too fiddly to cut with scissors... now I don't need to!!! (Vicki used this die in THIS wallhanging)

I have never seen one of these in use before so it is quite an eye opener as to what is involved..... 

Thank you so much Vicki for hosting this giveaway and of course thank you to AcuQuilt for providing it ...

It came wrapped up in these lovely big bubble pockets... great fun for jumping on!!!


I am looking forward to playing with this Go Baby in the new year... meantime I am still in enough shock that I need to just look at it for a while!
