GO! Be Dazzled is the result of an impulse where I declared to a friend (who happened to own a BERNINA dealership): “Wouldn’t it be fun to create a block of the month quilt featuring embroidered appliqué and shapes cut using AccuQuilt GO! dies?” Little did I know what would happen as a result of that conversation!
The AccuQuilt GO! cutter had recently been introduced to the quilting world and it seemed to me that it would be the ideal tool for cutting appliqué shapes to be used in embroidered appliqué designs. Using the first GO! dies created for appliqué, I wanted to create a block-of-the-month quilt that was extraordinary — a visual feast for the eyes and a joyful challenge for machine embroidery lovers everywhere.
Today, many quilters use AccuQuilt GO! dies to cut their appliqué shapes, but it all started right here.
Since the debut of this design collection in the spring of 2010, there have been numerous versions of this quilt made that have won awards at shows at all levels, including many blue ribbon awards for 1st place and several “Best of Show” winners. I wish I had a picture of all the winners and their quilts!
The quilt has been created by beginning and advanced embroiderers alike. Detailed illustrated instructions guide you step by step to creating your own masterpiece. All embroidery designs used on the quilt can also be used as individual designs to decorate all manner of smaller projects, including purses, totes, jackets, jeans, tea towels and so much more.
