    I just got the accuquilt go...please post pics

    I finally broke down and got the GO. It is on sale at Joann's this week. I only have the value die that comes with it. I will make the quilt pattern that came with it but would love some suggestions as to what else I can do with that die. Wouldn't mind seeing some pictures of your projects too. I am sure others would like to see what else you can do with that die also. I need some inspiration.

    You can go on the Accuquilt web site and find several patterns you can use with the value die , you can also find a video on youtube using the same die.

    they have so many dies you can make just about anything..

    I use the 2x2 for leaders and enders quilts
    i use the 2.5x2.5 for patterns that call for them
    i use the 3.5x6.5 for scrappy cobblestone quilt
    I use the rag dies for quick and easy baby quilts- applique any of the baby shapes in alternate sqs
    I use the Big Tumbler quilt for quick and easy scrappy last min quilts
    I use the bigger sqs to cut up scraps for later projects
    I use baby tumbler on flannel scraps for later baby quilts
    I use the 9in Hex for Floating hex pattern
    I use the smaller hex die for GFG
    DWR, Blazing Star, Peter & Paul and the like are just great to have as I cannot imagine cutting all those pieces

    Just remember to buy extra mats- keep plenty of each on had as they are disposable.. When on sale stock up....

    Lot so good suggestions. I do love scrappy quilts. I plan on getting the tumbler and also the apple core, not sure if I should get the larger ones of these two or the smaller version. I have to wait awhile though. I do want the large rag die also. I have never made a rag quilt and i think it would be so cuddly out of flannel. Oh then I want some of the triangler ones and......I sound just like my grand kids...lol!

    when you start to buy your dies look on ebay, I get most of mine there for 1/3 the cost

    also watch the sales at Joanns. Sometimes they are cheaper than my wholesale and have a better selection. Especially on the adapters, etc so that you can use it for paper works!
