    That is the way I've always used the die. It just makes sense to do it that way. Ebony Love has great youtube videos for using the Go.
    Got fabric?

    It was my pleasure to meet Ebony at the International Quilting Market in Portland, Oregon a few weeks ago! She is a Beautiful, Funny, Witty woman. She has even written a book called The Big little Book of Fabric Die cutting tips and gave me a signed copy, I was dumb struck! For me??? I almost cried I was so moved. She told me I couldn't because then she would also. We were going to interview her for OregonQuilting.net but ran out of time and "tape". Well worth reading her book if you don't already have a die cutting machine or how to get the most out of the one you have.
    Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.
    Faith :-D

    Great video! If I don't need to cut all three sizes and I want to cut just one size, I have cut a strip fitting the width of the desired size. Then I fold the strip accordion style just enough to cut six layers at a time. And repeat until the strip is used up. Mmmm, thanks for the book tip. I will check it out.
