When I started looking into buying something, I did a bit of research on the Go Baby vs. the Sizzix. This just seemed to suit my needs a bit more. Thank you so very much, fellow blog buddies, who gave me the pros and cons of your Go Baby or Sizzix machines. You guys were incredibly helpful.
When I started searching for an Irish vendor (you know - to help our economy AND save on shipping...), I found it to be incredibly difficult to buy both the machines and the dies in one place. That shop doesn't appear to exist in Ireland. With Laura Jane's help, I was finally able to buy one in Ireland on sale (woo hoo!!), but without dies (boo!!).
Now that I'm posting the photo of the die here, I see that this still has sharp edges...not like the blunted ones below. I wonder if that means I have to trim these blocks. I so so so hope not.

A classic for the baby quilt.
|DP outer edges (what are these called?!?!)|
I really love DP blocks, but hate making up a pattern then cutting the curved lines. Maybe this will really get me going. Anyway, I'll let you know what I like (or don't like) as this moves along. Fingers crossed it will lead to a few pretty quilts!
