Around my birthday in January this box came from accuquilt!

They sent me a GO! BIG and a die and a fabric bundle for being part of a BLOG HOP later in February, SEW EXCITED……

I cleared some counter space for a permanent place for it- this thing is HEAVY!

It opens up easily

of course I had to test it out right away, it comes with a flying geese die and mat

and I got these extras for the blog hop later, a snail trail die and some downton abbey fabrics.

The snail trail die is HUGE, it wouldn’t fit on my shelf, so hubby had to help raise up the shelf above it, which meant the 2nd shelf also, which also resulted in be organizing things! ahhh- so lovely Smile

Here’s the result of my playing….. a simple coaster, I made the block, then added batting and backing right sides together and sewed them together leaving an opening and turned right side out and quilted it simplyDSCF3481DSCF3482DSCF3483

I wasn’t the only one having fun, my daughters played with the box for a while! LOL

The GO BIG also came with an idea booklet for the flying geese die.

Here’s some pinterest flying geese inspiration

Blue Elephant Stitches. Absolutely beautiful flying geese quilt. It's the colors. Looks 100 years old. Which, when it comes to quilts, is excellent!

Really love Flying Geese quilts! I'd use more muted colors though. Maybe batiks!
