GO! Hop to It Table Runner

GO! Hop to It Table Runner

 

This table runner will make dinner a hopping good time and is so quick and easy to put together. All you’ll need is the GO! Leaping Frog appliqué die, the GO! Qube Mix & Match 8″ Block and the GO! Strip Cutter-2 ½” to get started.

 

The die will cut up to four frogs with fusible web at one time. You can either stack your fabric, so all the frogs will be swimming in the same direction, or fanfold your fabric so the frogs will be splashing around in opposite directions.

 

Watch this great getting started video and get the full pattern here.

GO! Propeller Planes Quilt

GO! Propeller Planes Quilt Pattern

 

To make this project, you will need the GO! Airplanes appliqué die, the GO! Qube Mix & Match 8” Block and the GO! Strip Cutter-2 ½”. We used three different blue fabrics to create the wind and sky, then grabbed some colorful scraps from our stash to cut the planes. The GO! Airplanes die has seven shapes that come together to make two plane options – a propeller plane and a biplane. This pattern uses a four-patch block and a special propeller block that is made using die #5, #7 and #8 from the GO! Qube Mix & Match Block. Get started on this quilting adventure by downloading detailed instructions  and watching this instructional video.
