I am sorry for the wait. You will love the Accu go. I ordered on because cutting was hurting my should. I have one ufo top waiting for bottom and top and then I will quilt. I will not get to that until after xmas. I don't have any pieces in a bag that I know of. Happy Thanks Giving to you and your family.

Life will be so much better with an accuquilt ! I hope you got a go big . Much happier hands and wrists. What dies did you ? What dies do others have for BH quilts? Just curious .

I' think you will like the Accuquilt cutter--hope you got th electric GoBig. Just so much easier on your hands, wrists and shoulders. In a Zoom class today I cut just 8 blocks and some recuts--my hand is killing me. Wish I'd been able to use the GoBig but these were wonky blocks

I have had the GO for several years and love it. I especially love it for cutting Strips.

I don’t do all my cutting at once. I cut a little, iron a little, sew a little etc. I listen to my body now so I don’t end up in pain.

I'm with Tartan. And today I am glad that I do it this way. I am making My Carolina Home's Scrap Dance Tango. I planned on making it double/queen sized. But today I decided to stop at a large throw size. So instead of making another 70 or so blocks, I only need to make 10. I have enough HST's already made to do about that many.

If I had cut everything out, I would feel obligated to make the original size.

Same. I'm also developing arthritis in my wrists, and if I sit too long I tend to get stiff. Plus, I get bored, doing the same thing over and over.

I love my Accuquilt Go! It has made life much easier. In the mean time putting things aside is something I have done a lot of for unknown reasons.
