As history has shown, I love using my go baby cutter. I really like the results of the projects that I have made so far. I love the ease of making these shapes and the accuracy of the cuts.
I initially bought the go baby to be able to more quickly process my scarps into usable squares and this little machine has surely surpassed my expectations. For the cost it's a great deal and I recommend it to everyone that asks me during various trips to Joann's, when they see me on the accucut isle or at checkout.
The one drawback of the go baby --- the compact size, It's limiting. I love the new dies that have been coming out and there are many of the existing dies that I have not been able to get yet due to the size. I still value and highly recommend this tool, but I wanted more versatility in the dies that I could use and after much deliberating I decided it was worth it for me to go through with the upgrade to a full size GO cutter.

I looked around waiting for them to go on sale at Joann's (since you can't use a coupon) and watched a few on eBay, just waiting for the right deal. I finally found one at a price I wanted to pay and it came with extras that I knew I would use -- the stock square triangle die and a 24 inch long 2.5 inch strip die, cutting mat for the 24 inch dies and a 10 x 10 mat for the larger square dies as well. Two short days later it arrived, and I am over joyed.
Now I have to rearrange a little and find a home for it -- but there are worse problems to have, am I right.
Happy Quilting everyone -- if your in the US (like me), I hope your holiday weekend is sew wonderful. I know I've got my share of projects planned.
