    How many people have an AccuQuilt Go Cutting system? Do you like it? Was it worth the money? Do you use it all the time? Do you regret purchasing it?

    I have and have to admit I have not used it very much. Do a search on here - it has been discussed before.

    Yes! I have the Go. I use the 2 1/2 inch strip and Tumbler dies the most. I really like how the dog ears are cut off the HSTs. I use the Hexagon die a lot too. My newest die is the 4" diamond. I am ordering the Drunkard's Path and Apple Core next.

    I have one and I have used the critter one for dragonflies on a quilt. They turned out really cute.
    I have also used the hearts,flowers.
    I really love it and plan to use it a lot more than I have so far.
    So far I have most of the dies for the go I do wish that they would do some of the patterns that they have for the Studio size for the Go machine. kjym Kathy

    I also have the AccuQuilt Go and I love it. I use it everytime I cut out a quilt, especially the strips. It is a timesaver.

    Do you waste a lot of fabric when making strips?? I am looking to buy one and sounds like most people like it but they do complain of fabric waste.

    If anyone complains about fabric waste then it's because they aren't laying the fabric on the die right. Mark 1/4" around the die blade with a Sharpie so there won't be any big waste. I enjoy my Go and it's so nice to have every cut perfect.

    I have the Go and LOVE it! I use it all the time. I looked into the starter sets when I got mine and decided against it because I haven't had an urge to applique and I just spent the extra on dies I will use alot!

    I bought the Go when it first became available to order. I paid way more for the starter set. The price of the Go now is a great value. Mine is going on several years old and it works great, dies are still sharp and I'm still using the first cutting mats I started with.
