Accuquilt GO! dies received

In the box with the Accuquilt GO!, these three dies and corresponding cutting mats were included!
Tomorrow, I'm going to cut out enough tumbler patches to make a throw quilt. 
I'm just going to go through my totes of 'older' fabrics and mix up the patches!

I also received the beginner die set with the GO!, and have already cut over 1000  4 1/2" squares for my mother-in-law.  My whole family took a turn at cranking the handle, they all enjoyed 'helping'.

There was a bit of a learning curve, only in remembering to align the grain with the edge of the patch, since the material and die move through the accuquilt cutter much easier at a slight angle.

The dies shown are the 2 1/2" strip, the tumbler, and the critter (dragonfly, bee, and butterfly) appliques.  
I think I will add a few 'critter' appliques randomly on the tumbler blocks,  mainly so I can try out the applique die:),  what do you think?
