    Actually they have at least 5 for the Go machine and a few larger ones for the Studio. There is the 8 1/2 die, 5 1/2 die, heart and circles and retangular one and forget what size that is. They also have a couple or so of larger ones to use in the Studio.

    What I need help with is the sewing of it.

    I cut the fabric and did all right stitching the X in the center of each but realized I should have gone from end to end and not stopped inside at the 1 inch mark. So next time I'll know better.

    I did stitch each piece together ok I suppose but it could have been in closer to the cut marks and I did sew blocks in rows all right.

    My problem came when I started stitching the rows together. The reverse side of the project which would be the smooth side did not line up to each row as I had hoped it would. It seemed to be lined up right so not sure if it moved as I sewed or what.

    Anyway I need to know how to learn how to sew it so sides will match up.
