    My DD and I share her Accuquilt Go. I am interested in buying some new dies, and can't figure out how to use the strip die. Is it worth it? Cutting pieces is my worst event to get a quilt ready. Also, am looking at the Sun Bonnett Sue. Any help out there?

    There are a ton of videos on using the dies if you google or go to Youtube.

    I have the sunbonnet sue and am surprised at how SMALL it cuts out, unless you can stand to sew small peices; it's fine. The strips are fine, just learn how to fold it to make it longer or in one longer peice, so to speak. I have both ....

    The strip dies are definitely worth it if you have trouble cutting strips with a rotary cutter. I personally do pretty well cutting strips with a Shape Cut flexible mat but, since getting the Go!, I pretty much cut strips on the Go!.

    The big difference for me is that I feel obliged to cut all of the strips on the Go die (3 for the 2.5", 4 strips at a time for the 1.5" die). With the Shape Cut I was more likely to cut just one or two strips, or to cut multiple widths out of a fabric at one time.
