Default Accuquilt GO Baby

I was so excited to get my delivery of the Accuquilt GO Baby late last week. I was nervous that it would be too difficult to crank the handle. It worked very smoothly, though. I have so many scraps that this would be an easy way to use [some of] them up. It came with the tumbler and the flower. I ordered the kitty and dog also. My first project is here http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...s-t285922.html .

Does anyone else have the GO Baby? What are your most used Dies?

I have the Go and I use the strip dies the most. Use them to make strips, squares and rectangles. Also cut my borders with them.

I got my Go Baby with the value die. I've since bought the kitty and the owl dies but I've only ever used the value die.

I have one, as well as the 3" finished square, the half-hexagon and the equilateral triangle. I have a looooong list of dies I want to get, but I'm bouncing between the 4.5" finished(5" cut) square to make my own charm squares and the strip die. I need both, but can only order only one at a time on my budget.

I debated getting a Go Baby when someone put them on a mega sale to use it for traveling. But since I already had the Go thought it didn't make much sense. Love the double 5in. die. There is also a Flying Geese die that is great.
The maximum width of a die is 6 inches.

hadn't thought about that... safer for kids to cut with.

Welcome to the club! For utliliy use, squares and hsts are a good buy. I must admit I have many dies and use them, but I have the GO...I think with the Baby you have to be careful of the die size....enjoy your newfound treasure!

Would you mind sharing a link to the GO Baby? I guess if I were not so lazy, I could google it.

Anyway, it sounds fun.
