In my Block-of-the-month group, this month we are cutting what seems to be about a million blocks of various sizes….the other night I spent two hours cutting 100 3 and an eighth inch blocks, and the next night I still had to cut 20 more. Then I needed 15 6 and a half-inch square, which were then cut into quarter square triangles. Then onto the next color: 20 more 3 and an eighth inch squares, 6 more 6 and a half-inch squares, also cut into quarter square triangles….
And so I stopped. I do not like this part at all. I still have three more colors to go…(we are making the “Rainbow Pieced Lattice” for the quilt, so this is way more than one block).
And now I am avoiding my sewing area. Just avoiding. I do not enjoy this at all….
So, here is my question: Has anyone ever used an Accuquilt Cutter for such situations? I am seriously thinking of buying one.
Or the smaller and less expensive version, the Go! Baby?
From the little I have read, I think that neither of these would solve my problem….I don’t think they have all the dies that my quilt requires. It seems as if you buy the cutter, buy the dies, and then make a quilt based on the shapes and dies you have available. And you still have to cut the squares into quarter square triangles.
Please! I would love comments….
