GO! Be Dazzled Wins First Place at International Quilt Festival—Houston

Sarah Vedeler’s GO! Be Dazzled quilt has won the Computer-Aided Machine Embroidery category of the 2010 “A World of Beauty” annual fall Judged Show of the International Quilt Association. This was the first time Sarah has entered a quilt in the IQA show.


Steve Nabity, AccuQuilt CEO said, “Sarah cut out all of the appliqué shapes on the quilt top with the AccuQuilt GO!® Fabric Cutter proving that better cuts truly do make better quilts.” GO! Be Dazzled was created with popular GO! designs cut out from the

  • GO! Round Flower,
  • GO! Funky Flower,
  • GO! Star-2”, 3”, 4”,
  • GO! Heart-2”, 3”, 4”,
  • GO! Feathers,
  • GO! Circle-2”, 3”, 5” and
  • GO! Diamonds dies,

which are all also compatible with the new GO! Baby™ Fabric Cutter, to make the beautiful quilt top. Sarah then embellished the motifs with her own artistry by adding computer-aided machine embroidery to complete her work of art.

After winning, Sarah commented “I’m on cloud nine; I can’t verbalize how exciting this experience has been!” Her quilt was one of 375 quilts juried into the “A World of Beauty” Judged Show, with almost $100,000 in prize money awarded to the winners.


Sarah Vedeler and AccuQuilt have partnered together on new designer GO! dies featuring Sarah’s Sparkle Tree collection and Stars collection. In addition, Sarah Vedeler Designs offers digitalized embroidery motifs to accompany the new dies.

A good bit of this story was furnished to me by Accuquilt; I am sure you will see similar posts on other blogs this week.  I have edited the content and I have linked up a few extra goodies from Sarah’s facebook page & IQA so you can connect with them too!
