    Hello, Fellow Quilters, I need help with cutting fabric (arthritis) on a budget and wanted to know if the "Go" is only for cutting applique pieces and if it's user friendly? Thanks and God Bless! :-)

    Hi! Welcome from Ohio. There a bunch of people on this board who have them. I'm sure they'll give their opinions.

    Each different die for the Go cuts different things. One cuts HST 3" fininshed. One cuts Squares. I have a parrallelagram and isosceles, I have a 4 7/8" triangle and 2" and 6" squares...some are made with just the right shapes for a particular quilt. Some are strip cutters. It can get expensive if you need a lot of different size triangles, or squares or whatever pattern piece you use a lot of.

    Hello and Welcome from Louisiana!

    You may want to check out the Baby-Go, or the alto system, and there is another that is like the go but accepts all the dies.

    (is Go Tigers! appropriate?)

    No it is not just for applique piecing. I just cut many strips this morning of 2 1/2 inch strips for a king size triple Irish chain for a customer. Goes fast and is extremely accurate.

    Hi and welcome from TN! The quilt in my avatar was cut entirely on the GO. I avoid rotary cutting at all cost. Not for physical health reasons, but for my mental health and my husband's financial health.
