    Probably not rag in a good way. It rags nicely and looks good when you clip the edges, so it would be worth it to go to the extra effort.

    I'm thinking it would just fray and look not so pretty

    <- been there, tried that. It was ugly. Trust me, you want to take the time and snip it.

    Do you have spring scissors? They make the work a lot easier.

    They sure do, particularly if you have wrist problems.

    Do you know anyone with the Accuquilt GO? And who has the rag die cut? WOW, it rocks.....makes my life easier and keeps your hand from all the aching after all the cutting!!! I was hesisated to spend $60.00 for the die, but it was worth it. If you lived closed to me, I would share :)
