    I've been drooling over the AccuQuilt Go cutter at my LQS. Well I talked my dh into getting it for me. Our anniversary is about a month away. Plus I told him the extra dies for it would make good presents later on. :lol:

    I didn't get a lot of the extra dies except for the ones that cut 2 1/2" strips. I figured I would use that the most, especially for binding strips.

    Of course I've already been playing with it. :)

    I just got one too! But dummy me, I didn't order the mat that goes with the 2 1/2" strips, so now have to wait for it to come. I did get the 8 1/2" rag block and am havign fun with it. Want to make two for our nice neighbors so it will be a big help! Does yours turn kind of tough? Mine does, but I think I have it up too high, need to put it on a lower table and see if that is better. Or else I will have Michelle Obama arms after I use it awhile. ha

    Mine is a little hard to turn, but I found if I only put 4-6 layers of fabric in it at a time that it does alright. Isn't it fun? LOL

    Have fun with your new toy. I am hoping to get one of these also after the first of the year. I do have it on my Xmas lst. We will see.
