    accuquilt also has a 1 1/2 inch block die. I bought mainly to make 1 1/2 inch blocks for the postage stamp swaps.

    Martelli also has a 1 1/2 strip rule and a strip template with several sizes cut into it.

    I dug out my old Sizzix machine that I used in scrapbooking before I got my Cricut. It cuts wonderful squares. Sure am glad I didn't throw it out!

    I just got the AccuQuilt Go at SewforLess.com for 199 w/free shipping. it's still on sale. Just couldn't beat the price. I haven't used it very much yet, but I have big plans for it.

    I haven't found the 1 1/2" die at Accuquilt. All I found was the 2" square that finishes at 1 1/2".
    Got fabric?

    My favorite cutter for any size would be my HUBBIE... He always does a fantastic job, and I love watching him work..

    I purchased the Sizzix recently. I got a die that cuts 1", 1 1/2", 2" and 2 1/4" fabric squares. I just love it! The die # is 654984. It says on the side Squares #2. You can stack around 6 pieces of fabric on that die and it just slices it perfectly. Love my Sizzix!

    Thanks for the reply- this does look like a good die to have, but it wouldn't have worked for this project. I needed 4,000 1.5" squares- cutting all the others would have been a lot of waste, and precutting my fabric to just get the small square would have taken a lot of time.

    It took me about half-day to cut all the squares, so I don't think too bad timewise. I folded my fabric in 4 layers, so that helped a lot.

    You don't have to cut any of the other sizes! You just lay the fabric over the 1 1/2" square shape! It would take too long to cut all you need with only one shape on the die. I got this die to cut my left over scraps. I only use the 1 1/2" and 2". It really cuts them beautifully and accurately. I agree with others that say use the June Taylor Shape Cut! You can cut 1 1/2" strips, turn them sideways and cut the other direction. That would go real fast! I use it all the time if I need a lot of squares.
