    Thanks for all the responses. I have the worst time with 2-1/2 strips, so I would probably love it for that. I did get an email that AccuQuilt is having a 40% off sale on some dies. Now just have to decide if I want to invest or not.

    You can cut precise strips using a Stripology ruler. The cost is about $55. I LOVE mine.

    You can cut much more than strips. I want to do a quilt that requires almost 100 pieces of Drunkard's Path. A stripology ruler isn't going to help that.

    I have the Fiskars rotary cutter and ruler combo. I love it for strips and cutting pieces from my strips. The rotary blade last forever. No accidentally hitting the ruler.

    I have a few dies now but absolutely LOVE the Dresden plate die - makes doing them a breeze. My daughter gave me that die for Christmas a couple of years ago. If I ever do a double wedding ring, that's the only way I'll do it (with their die).

    Happiness is the journey, not the destination.

    I've invested in a Go hand crank. Now I'm really confused as to which dies I need to purchase. It is quite an investment. What would you recommend?

    I would start with the 2.5" strip die. Your Go should come with a die (maybe the value die?). Enjoy your new toy!

    I have the Accuquilt Studio, and absolutely love it. It is an expensive system, so I save/saved up birthday and holiday gift money for it and each new die. It's made quilting accessible to me, because I'm prone to carpal tunnel pain, and the cutting (even rotary) part was prohibitive.

    I have the 2 1/4, for binding and batting strips for JR rugs, & 2 1/2 strip dies, because I adore JRs and creating strip quilts. I also used the 2 1/2" die for a Bargello quilt (cut the fabric into strips, sew them into sheets, lay them across the cuts lines, and cut into strips, again), and it went together in a snap! I have (and love) several sized HSTs and QSTs, and the dies cut the pieces accurately and trimmed corners, so no more wavy bias seams or rabbit ears. Any leftover scraps get cut into usable pieces before they get put away, saving time when I go to my stash, because I can just pick out pieces and get to sewing.

    Additionally, I commissioned a custom die (it's a spiral in an 8" circle, with a 4" wide ruffle "donut" around the outside of the circle) that I use in creating costume pieces, and I have so much fun making skirts with that:
