Comments about AccuQuilt AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutting Dies: 8-1/2" Rag Square:

It cuts really well, but it is hard to clean the bits of thread left in the die. They give you a pick to help clean them out, but it is tedious. This die cutter is better than the alternative of clipping the seams. Be sure to have a spare mat because it does pretty much ruin one mat to cut a whole quilt out. They are not expensive though.

Comments about AccuQuilt AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutting Dies: 8-1/2" Rag Square:

We (husband & I) have cut out 252 flannel squares using the 8.5" Rag Quilt Square in about 8 hours as well as we cut 135 muslin squares using the 6.5" square for batting. Becasue I have problems with my hands, the AccuQuilter and accessories have eliminated a lot of fatigue / stress on my hands from snipping all of the quilt squares and has even gotten my husband to help me cut out my quilt pieces. I will be ordering more for my AccuQuilterGO from Ritz.

Comments about AccuQuilt AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutting Dies: 8-1/2" Rag Square:

I've never wanted to make a rag quilt because of all the snipping. This made it soo easy. I made one quilt with denim and flannel and another with minky and flannel. I will say the cotton and demin was easier to work with than the minky, but it still worked.

Comments about AccuQuilt AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutting Dies: 8-1/2" Rag Square:

I was a little concerned about buying this die after reading some comments about the difficulty in keeping the blades clean. So much easier to clean the blades than to snip a zillion seams! So far, I have used flannel and cotton and I love it. I would not suggest using this with fleece as the rag strips are pretty small. Am buying the smaller rag die to add variety to my squares. I would also have an extra mat as it does cut into the mat.
