    No I have the Quilt Cut... cuts multiple layers and fast and easy for any size , with the AccuQuilt you can only cut the size of the dye.

    I have the reg go....picked it up for 224.00 - I use the 6 1/2 die all the time and love it...to me the Baby is too little since I like that die. I do wish it could do a size 10 inch square. I also love make the circles. I am waiting for a sale on the Tumbler...I have the apple core but for me its too hard to sew.

    I think it would be faster and easier to cut 5" or 6" squares using the Shape Cutter cutting mat.

    I have the Go! and would not consider using it to cut squares. It's great for cutting triangles, strips, and odd shapes, though.

    The 5" square die is the one die that has more problems too. Unless you are careful with grainline and/or use paper on top of your fabric, a side can easily be off by 1/8". The 6.5" square does not work on the GoBaby:

    Well, I have the Go, the Go Baby, and the Alto Quilt Cut 2. I use the Go the most. I'd use the Go Baby for all my narrow dies if DD hadn't taken it home with her. The Go Baby fits perfectly next to my machine making it easy to cut and sew. Be sure and check what dies works with the Go Baby before buying it.
