Great Dies, BUT...
These are wonderful dies. The problem is the cutting platform for the Gemini. Flip, flop, twist or turn your plates-no help. The dies mar the metal plate deeply resulting in marring the plastic plates- deeply. Useless for paper cutting afterward. These deep embossed lines cause the severe warping of all the plate and the plastic shim. Your sandwich ends up about 5" deep and very difficult to squeeze into the machine without dies shifting. Only able to cut a small baby quilt. Too $$$$$$!!!rodderG, GAWas this review helpful? 2 out of 3 found this review helpful

This is the greatest product. I love that I can now cut quilt pieces accurately every time and can cut 8 layers at a time!mauihumv, HIWas this review helpful? 3 out of 3 found this review helpful
Great Idea, but VERY limited usability..
As a new quilter, I jumped on this, and even purchased the Gemini specifically to go with them. Unfortunately, they're limited. To join two half square triangles to a 6" four patch unit, you don't cut the half square triangles at 6 1/2 (with seam allowances). You cut the triangles to 6 7/8". Might as well cut it all with rotary cutter. There's also a lot of fabric waste. Hopefully, they'll come out with rectangles to make it more versatile. Stay with their designed blocks and the dies work greatTeresaM777, WAWas this review helpful? 0 out of 0 found this review helpful
