    I have a Go Baby and use it with my fourth graders who are learning how to quilt. It saves lots of time and really money, as there is productive cutting and we can move forward quickly on making quilts without the stress of lots of boo-boos. It is fun, too!

    I am really liking the Ribbon Cut Die and the Rose of Sharon die. I tend to have a favorite die every few months. I have the large 9" hex die. It's perfect for big bold hex blocks.
    Got fabric?

    Get the Accuquilt Go, it takes all of the Baby go dies and all of the regular go dies and alot of the studio dies. One of the newer dies cuts 3 different sized strips at the same time.. That is my next purchase.
    Lack of planning on your part does NOT nessessitate an emergency on my part.

    The Baby takes only some of the Go! dyes. Here is a link that shows which dies work in both and which are only for the Go:

    I just got a GO for Christmas and it has saved me a ton of time! I think it really depends on the types of quilts you are doing- I do alot of photo quilts so the die for a 6 in block was a lifesaver. Same with the DWR die- especially since it seems like the key to that one is cutting pieces all the same size EXACTLY. For me, it's worth it.

    I bought the Accuquilt Go several years ago and have used it twice. I have a bunch of dies to go with it that I just"had" to have. Could kick myself for spending all that money. When I first bought it, between that and extra dies it was over $800. With the dies I bought afterwards, I probably have well over $1200 invested, and it just sits there and collects dust. Live and learn.

    Copied my comments from another post from about a week ago.
    If you don't want it you should offer it for sale....bet you would get some interested inquiries.

    The Baby GO takes the narrow dies.
