I only had a couple of dies, so again I was limited in what I was able to cut. However, the kind folks at AccuQuilt offered me two new dies of my choice to give me an opportunity to expand my use of the GO! Baby. As my quilting buddies had not seen or used a GO! before, we had a little intro session using my new dies.
I folded my full length piece of fabric into thirds.
Placed the mat on top
And turned the handle to start the fabric through the GO! Baby.
Six strips easily cut, in just a few minutes.
The second die that I used was the 4 1/2" half square triangle.
This die is so great, as it already cuts the little tag off the corners, so it's ready to sew. If you place two different color fabrics together, your HST is all ready for the sewing machine.
The best way to describe the dies is that they are like a dense sponge. The blades are hidden inside the die. When you roll the die through the machine, it presses the blades and cuts your fabric. Even if you run your hand over the dies you do not feel anything sharp. The blades are inside the foam sponge.
I am very happy with my GO! Baby. I believe with my wrist limitations, this machine will increase my cutting ability. I've already used it to cut my blocks for the Sew Along Goodnight Irene quilt. One thing about the AccuQuilt GO! Baby is that it is affordable and very portable. If you would like to see an intro about this machine you can find it on this AccuQuilt YouTube.
Thanks for letting me share with you. I hope you have a Happy Quilting day!
