Dare I Challenge a GO! Cutter Quilter?

Quilt designer Linda Zokan is hosting a Quilt-a-Long with Linda.  From the fabrics she chose it looked to me like it would be a happy looking quilt so I am quilting along. All my fabric is cut and I'm ready to sew.  It went pretty quickly too.  I'm sure that GO! cutters are faster when cutting applique shapes but strips and squares??? I started to wonder if I could beat someone with a GO! cutter.   Anyone want to go with a real-time challenge?  Do you dare to enter the ring with me?  I'll cut so fast you won't know what hit you.  (Just working on my trash talk scrap talk.)

After three tries I finally found a dark I liked. The brown matches the brown outlines in the focus fabric.  And it was sitting right there next to the focus fabric in the quilt shop but I kept thinking I needed blue.  Once I shook that thought I saw the brown.  Now I have a couple more half yards of blue to add to my stash.

Even my binding is cut and ready to go.

You can cut way faster than the Go! Cutter so I'm not about to challenge you on that..LOL.

The only thing the Go! Cutter can boast is accuracy and that's if you use it right. Somehow I managed to even break mine. They gave me a replacement, but I'm back to doing it the old fashioned way with a ruler and a rotary cutter.

Love your colors :)
