    How easy is that! Now I just need a GO Baby or an Accuquilt. Maybe someday. I keep debating how much I would use one. HUMMMMMMM!

    Me too. I want one so badly, but I can't justify the cost of one right now. I'm not sewing that much, so therefore, I'm not quilting nor cutting fabrics that much.

    I think I could persuade myself to buy the Go baby, but it is the cost of those dies that boggles my mind and keeps my hand out of my pocket.

    Cost of the dies is really not that high if you shop, there are several web sources or Joann fab when they run 25% off. Consider the amount of cutting you can get from die-almost uncountable-compared to replacing rotary blades....and less wear and tear on your shoulder/arm/back muscles. I shopped until I found the best price then bought the GO and now have accumulated a lot of the dies and do not regret any of it.

    Looks like it would really be worth the cost. I haven't made any hex quilts yet. Not sure if I would actually use it.

    I have saved so much money not having to buy rotary blades - the price of the dies are really not that bad when you add up what you spend normally on templates and rotary blades. It also save a ton of time. I also have done quilts that I would never have done like the dunkards path - I love my Go and Studio.

    The cost of the dies has always made me stop and think on these, too - plus, this is the first video I have seen that doesn't waste much fabric with the cutting - meaning, she just really fit that piece of fabric well to avoid waste. I am still new to quilting and taking off in so many art forms to try that I don't think it would be an economical purchase for me right now - but they are neat.
