Default What Accuquilt dies for Bonnie Hunter

Accuquilt dies are on sale right now. In preparation for this years BH mystery quilt, I wonder if there are specific dies which would work. After 4 hand surgeries ( all rather minor but still) I justified getting a Go Big so I want to make sure I can use it for this years quilt. Are there specific ones which seem to work on her quilts?
TIA

Love the Accuquilt cutter... where are the dies on sale?? That is the best time to add to the collection of dies. Itsaves so much time and there is much less stress on your hands.

there is no guarantee on what size will work but last year the dies from the 6 inch cube worked on a lot of pieces. so I suggest cubes but not sure which one for future mysteries

As someone with upper extremity ortho problems I can tell you that a fabric cutter is definitely the way to go! No pain of any kind with my cutter and if the dies are on sale I would go for it!

The dies are on sale at on the Accuquilt website Accu quilt.com I think. If you have not signed up for their newsletter yet I recommend you do so. I get some sort of message every day but it helps me to keep remembering I have the machine. I love it .
I have the 8 inch block is it worth also getting a 6 inch block?

Bonnie has the studio and all she has ever posted about were her different size strip dies. Her patterns are mostly triangles, strips, and squares. She cuts squares from the strips on the strip dies. On her blog you can search for die cuts and the sizes she uses the most.

I use my Go cutter everyday. It's as important to me as my sewing machine.

There is a search window on the top left with an Orange B and search symbol.

I have the Ready Set Go set which came with a 2 1/2 strip die the 8” qube & the cutting mats for both. I have since bought the 5” square, which I love especially for the charm swap, the Ohio Star die & the 4” finished HST die. I love my accuquilt!!

If it's like last year, she won't post the Accuquilt dies used. So you'll have to figure it out as she releases the clues or wait until all released to cut. The suggestion to purchase the 6" Qube is probably best, as she uses a lot of pieces in a 10 or 12" block!
