Rag Quilting Question

I am off work today so I am trying to catch up on my blogging.

I have fallen in love with rag quilts. They are easy and when you are finished you are having to get anything machine quilted...great gifts to give.
I have only made one so far...but want to make many more. I got interested in them when my Aunt passed away and she had alot of bluejeans and blue jean dresses. I asked my uncle if I could have them so I could make a few blue jean quilts. I got looking around at different ideas for some quilt with bluejeans and came across the rag quilts. I am still trying to get all the jeans and dresses cut out into squares. I had bought some jean material from hobby lobby several years ago to make me a dress and never did. I picked up some pretty flower and pink material and made this rag quilt. I did put flannel in the middle for batting so it is a little heavy but mighty warm.

The next rag quilts I want to make are going to made out of all flannel. They look so pretty.
The local quilt shop Tomorrows Quilts I go to in Waco has some flannel rag quilts on display. Linda the owner just started selling the Accuquilt Go fabric cutter She used the accuquilt rag quilt dye to cut out those rag quilts. I have been looking into buying the accuquilt go. Does anyone have one and have you used the rag quilt dyes? How much do you like the Accuquilt? I would appreciate any feedback on it.
When I do a flannel rag quilt I will post some pics.
