    I have had this wonder cutting machine for about 2 weeks. It was a big stretch financially to get one but I am a very prolific quilter and felt it would be worth it.

    I have no trouble cutting strips so was not interested in those dies or the applique type. I ordered the 3 1/2 HST and the 4 7/8 triangle. These are the ones that will make a flying geese block 3 1/2 x 6 1/2.

    All I can say is WOW. It is just cut and sew. Not a single bit of trimming. I just cut up all my Christmas Scraps for the start of a quilt with just flying geese. Here is a picture of how they look when you cut them.

    I also cut up a bunch of them to surround this cute wall hanging from a panel I bought a couple of years ago. Cut and sew----no trimming.

    I feel that it is well worth the money if you make lots of quilts. I will be selective in what dies I buy to make sure I will make lots of quilts out of them.

    Next one I want is the Alex Anderson one that makes smaller geese. This would be used with the one that came with the machine.

    All dog ears pretrimmed for a perfect fit

    Nicely done. I'm still on the fence, waiting for the price to drop more. I am the same way I only think that I need the strip cutter. I was thinking of the Simplicity strip cutter but I heard too many bad things about it. So I guess untill I can find a killer deal I will do everything manually.

    It looks like it does a beautiful job, but I am not sure I would do enough to make the expenditure worthwhile. I don't do applique except on the embroidery machine so I wouldn't be interested in the dies either; and I like doing the quickie HST's. Maybe sometime in the future but not now.

    Cool. I have not explored those to much. Did you cut out the snowmen or was that a panel?

    I love mine as well. It really helps my hands as I have both carpel tunnel nerve damage and arthritis. Cutting a lot of strips for charity quilts really is a breeze now.

    One of these days..........


    I really want one, I just haven't been able to justify spending the money on it. Maybe when I get my income tax return..........

    You guys are making it really hard to NOT buy one. Let's see, I'm a pretty prolific quilter, I have carpal tunnel and arthritis, if I bought the Go there would always be dies that I could get as gifts from dh and dd, it's one of the few gadgets I don't have......hmmmm......looks like it's getting closer and closer.....

    That looks very cool. I canceled my order (temporarily) because I decided to spent the money on my children/ grandchildren instead. I had the simplicity cutter and sent it back. I first thought it was nice but soon realized it cuts wavy. Can't wait to get my Go.

    I love mine, I have almost all the dies- minus the strips, I think i can handle straight lines! lol.. My only disappointment is that the mat wears down to quickly for me.. I always have a new spare of each size, when I unwrap a new one I make sure to replace the back up one the very next day... Other than that, I LOVE MY GO!!!!!
