A bundle of pure JOY has arrived.

If you are looking for the giveaway - go here- GIVEAWAY

Dr Getago, (it rhymes with Zhivago)  the attending physician,  has announced the birth of the AccuQuilt BABY.

Oh isn't it a cutie pie.

Mom and baby are doing just fine.
Here is the official birth announcement:

AccuQuilt’s Baby is Here! or Say Hello to GO! Baby™

AccuQuilt’s new arrival brings you a NEW way to GO! The AccuQuilt GO! Baby™ Fabric Cutter is an extension of the GO!® family of products and is an ultra-portable, affordable and adorable fabric cutter for quilters and fabric crafters. The GO! Baby Fabric Cutter has the same cutting performance as the original GO! Fabric Cutter and is just as safe, accurate and fast. At only $139, and with a more compact design, the GO! Baby is perfect for the beginner and occasional quilter. The GO! Baby is compatible with all GO! dies except for 10" x 10" and 10" x 24" dies.

Key features and benefits:
- Consistent, accurate cuts—up to 6 layers at a time
- 90% faster than traditional cutting
- Lightweight—only 8 pounds
- Create perfect appliqué in the turn of a handle
- Reduce fabric waste
- No cut fingers or sore backs
- Create endless design options
- Minimal space needed for storage
- Portable—no electricity or batteries needed

10 New GO! Dies
GO! Baby™ is bringing with it ten new die designs featuring many of our most requested dies such as a smaller tumbler, a cat and a dog. Also available are multiple appliqué flowers and three sizes of equilateral triangles that correspond with the current hexagon die. In addition, a new 2 1/2" strip cutter, has been designed to fit the GO! Baby's smaller size. All dies are compatible with both the GO!® and GO! Baby™ fabric cutters.

Good news for all current GO! owners:  The new dies that are being released will work with both GO! and GO! Baby. 
I don't have a picture but I will be wanting the smaller tumbler die. 
You applique aficionados will want the dog and cat dies and the new daisy.

All of these are currently on pre-order.  BUT you should get them in time for Christmas. Everyone wants a Baby for Christmas, don't they.  
If you have a child that loves to help with the quilting process - or even quilts on their own, this would be a wonderful Christmas present. Of course it is PERFECT for adults too.  It is even more portable than the GO! especially for those of us who tend to overpack for a trip. 
Don't forget to order dies and mats to make it a perfect gift.
