I didn’t realize even the Go dies had wood. I thought that was only the Studio cutter. I am a confirmed Accuquilt fan though. I do very little appliqué, but I have a lot of strip cutters that save time and are so accurate. With a strip cutter I can cat squares, rectangles, and diamonds so easily! I also have the 8” and 12” Qubes because they contain the sizes I use most often. I did just buy the Hunter’s die because all those angles seem tricky. I use my tumbler and triangle dies for donation scrap quilts too.

I have a lot of the basics, and even at good prices I still think they're high. The rate hike won't affect me because I'm not buying anymore.

Interesting, I did not know this. At first I was bothered that they weren't using wood grown here in the States; this makes sense now.

I am hesitant to buy many dies due to price and future opportunities to use. I do have a 9" cube and am overwhelmed by the possibilities and find it difficult to settle on a pattern. BUT during the pandemic my LQS set up a medallion quilt a block (or row/column) a month which used EVERY die in the cube. It had over 15,000 pieces with every "row" being different. Somehow I finished it for our bedroom and I can look at if to see what block I might want to use in a less complicated quilt. Now I am cutting pieces for a simple, not really, table runner and am concerned that my ruler and rotary cutter will not cut as accurately as the dies but I don't really know how to adjust the pattern to work. I do like the dies, but not for a one and done project.
