    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

    I've been cutting the 8 1/2" rag blocks with mine, how cool is that? I like mine just fine. Will build up some good arm muscles with it! :)

    I also got one for my birthday in September, though I have not had a chance to use it yet. I bought quite a few of the extra dies, and then they came out with a lot more. Well, Christmas is coming.

    Norbana - mine came with in a week of ordering it. Big heavy box.

    Happy anniversary and Merry Christmas!! :lol: :lol:

    I just love my cutter!! Last week, Shoppers Rule had a "special" on the dies and I got 2 of them. And the one I use the most is the 2 1/2". I also have a 1 1/2" strip cutter and it gets a lot of use too. I don't know how I did without it.... :D

    Since I had NO idea what that was....I went & looked it up! WOW! Sure would be nice to have all your pieces the same exact size! But, it also looks like you could drop a lot of $$$$? Looks like they keep adding new dies all the time so, of course, you have to keep buying them! Nice but Yikes! Expensive! Have fun with it! You have a wonderful DH, you'd better hang on to him!! haha! :D
