    The Accuquilt Go has a 5 inch square die. Love it...cuts in seconds I use only 3 layers of fabric at a time so that is 6 - 5 inch squares in seconds...I use my fat qtrs, many from the same line and of course on sale. I Wash, dry and press...then cut. I make my own charm packs for patterns that call for Charms.

    That's fabulous! They don't have those horrible pinked edges! Now those would be charms I might actually enjoy using! :)

    And - the biggest plus in my opinion - you can have your fabrics washed before you cut them

    (although I know there many that seem to prefer unwashed)

    I'm so selfish with my time I have the half square die, and the rectangle die. Why cut the squares into sections when the machine will do that too. LOL.

    I totally agree...and you save alot of money I am taking a class for a bag that calls for two charm packs...or 48 charms. cost savings over 50 percent.

    Not sure what you are saying? the machine cuts out two 5 inch squares with one layer of fabric or like I do ...three layers so that is 6 - 5 inch squares at a time.

    I have all sizes of the square dies so I cut the squares and then recut the squares using the other dies. I like to cut using just half of one shape. I get very interesting cuts. I play with the dies. My favorite new die is the big 9 1/2" hex. I have the ribbon and ric rac dies preordered.

    Love hearing the ways you use your "go" system. I looked at one at the last quilt show and came so close to getting it, but just wasn't sure. Thanks for showing what it can do. who knows...maybe I will get one.
