    Accuquilt

    I took the plunge and got the cutter!! It has been long enough and I have made my way through enough quilts to convince my husband it would be a good investment. Now the question is - for those that have it - what is the die you like the most? I have the oppertunity to ask for these for Christmas and just can't decide. I got the starter kit so I have a lot already. I know I want the Tumber, I just like the way they look scrappy. But I am thinking I want a strip cutter but I don't know what the best size it. I am thinking 3.5 but I am not sure why

    Any suggestions?

    I have the 2 1/2" and use it all the time. I have the tumbler (both sizes) and I like the smaller one better. I use the hexagon and the circles alot too. Enjoy it!!!

    I have the 2 1/2" strip cutter - love it for binding and cutting my own jelly roll strips. There are so many patterns for jelly rolls and you can make your own!

    If you get the 2 1/2" strip cutter, you can use it to swap strips in the swap I host occasionally here at the QB

    My GOAL is always to ENJOY EVERY STEP of the quilting process....

    I love mine, I have the 5"-4" sqs -stars- hexagons- snowflakes- trees- and a flower. I want the tunbler, I am thinking about the strips, but I think I would like a strip cutter. I may ask for that for Christmas. It only comes with 1 mat and I could use a long mat as some of the patterns are long and narrow.

    I invested in many of the shapes or figures. I wanted the cutter for applique. I make a lot of Linus quilts and currently little dresses for the children in Hatia etc. They are really cute and so easy with the Baby Go.
    Trying to sew, quilt or read everyday.
