Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I do get some pulling with this die. I think it might be the size and have found when my cutting mat get worn that makes a difference also. I still think it is faster cutting this way. I like to iron a pile of fabric and then cut 2 1/2", 3 1/3 and tumblers all at the same time. I have made a ton of quilts from the 3 1/2" squares. The Go was one of the best things I've ever treated myself to.
sew4nin I mail my stuff the same way Barb does. It really does work. I use any type of thin cardboard, I have been know to recycle cereal boxes. When I wrap mine in plasitc wrap I will poke a few small holes in the plastic so air can escape so when you take to post office it fits through their little envelope thing. Barb and I swap charms on another site and our envelopes have 100 charms in them so this should be not problem for 50 charms.
We are having a snow day here in Michigan....glad I don't live in the Northeast...you guys are getting clobbered! The best thing to do when you have a snow day is ...sew!
so I thought we would play a game ....so we can get to know each other and keep the post busy in between birthdays. I will ask some questions and (I will give answers too) then I will ask a question and give you a time limit to find the answer and everyone who has the answer will go in a drawing and the winner will get a prize mailed from Me.
