Normally, I love all my accuquilt cutting dies. This one does the job, but is a pain inasmuch as only (2) layers may be cut at one time and even after many, many cuts, there is still difficulty at times getting the die thru the machine. Also, it is a bit of trouble to keep clean.

I knew these probs before buying as I had read other reviews. However, I did expect getting the die through the machine to get easier after "breaking" the die in. Mine is still hard to do after over 50 cuts.

The squares with fringe cut looks good. You just have to weigh if the trouble working with it is worth it or not.

Well worth the money spent. I cut 140 rag blocks in about 30 min. Using denim and flannel, I layered just 2 layers wrong sides together so they were ready to quilt and piece. If I had to cut the fringe with a pair of scissors, I would have never made this quilt,lol. The die cuts the fringe for you!! Amie

I've only created a few rag quilts so far, but with over 160 squares each, the clipping was tedious to say the least and had to take multiple breaks even with spring loaded scissors purchased just for this task. I'm on my second quilt with this die (newly purchased Accuquilt Go! as well!) and what a difference. Faster than cutting the squares themself, the "rag" is already done for you. Just "x" and sew your rows/columns together. If the time saving aspect isn't enough, my hands no longer hurt!

This is my second rag quilt die and although it works well, it is really difficult to clean after about 50 or 60 cuts. It appears that the time I saved on using it was then spent on cleaning it so I could again use it. And you can never really get it totally clean so you end up cutting what it misses. Would I buy it again? Yes, but I really wish they would come up with a better solution so that cleaning isn't so difficult.

This die provides accurate squares but I can only cut two flannel squares at a time and it's great upper body exercise - I'm not sure it's less work or less time than using a rotary cutter and scissors. Overall though, it works as advertised and is well made.

I've taken up making rag quilts and the ONLY way to do it is w/this product! My daughter and others I know have sat for hours cutting the edges by hand w/scissors... getting blisters no doubt - this die w/the Go Cutter is the way to go! I can whip out a quilt in a day and its a joy, not a hurtful experience!

This is a wonderful die to own, I just don't recommend using the instructions on how to make a rag quilt using the instructions that come in the packaging. Even with using a walking foot, my blocks puckered when I layered the top and bottom die cut squares with batting squares that they recommend you use that you cut slightly smaller than the fringed block that is cut from the die. I would go back to the original way I learned this, ie, creating a quilt square sandwhich with several layers of thin cheap flannel on the inside with my good quality flannel on the top and bottom. I finally figured out why the squares would pucker. In theory, its because batting is soft and therefor there is always some distortion when you quilt on it. I learned that from the book, Quilt as you Go Made Modern, that you can also get through Amazon. She recommends using needle punched batting if you are going to use the quilt as you go technique which is basically the same technique used to make rag quilts. The batting has a lower loft and is stiffer, so you might have more success using this kind of batting if you want to use their instructions and make it their way. It might be worth a try on one block first to see if it works. I hope this helps someone else because I know I certainly wasted quite a bit of fabric using their pattern instructions.

My daughter loves to help me with this machine, it's all she ever wants to do. It's nice because it elongates all that cutting after the rag quilt is sewn up. I was a little worried that the little frilly cut edges would be floppy and get in the way but I just spray start he'd the fabric before cutting and they really don't even come apart or cause any issues at all. These are great quick and easy baby blankets to make. While I feel some of the dies are stupid to waste your money on, like squares, this one is great. I've found that my money is best spent on the ones that would be difficult to cut with a rotary or scissors. Save your money for those types, this being one of the ones worth buying for sure!
