Article continues below these Amazon Goodies I’m constantly inspired by how a squares, rectangles and HSTs can turn into about 5 million different blocks.

Hi Peggy! You misread the description. It is giving 'finished' sizes. So a finished 2" square comes from a die that is 2.5" I've emailed you a photo to prove it from the gemini page This system includes nested dies in the shape of squares, half square triangles and quarter square triangles covering FINISHED SIZES 1”, 1.5”, 2”, 3”, 4” and 6”
Linda it's made entirely different as the Die are single wires, not sharp flat trays. The end result is they both make a shape. I find that storage is much easier with the Gemini dies and no hand cranking, just push a button and it does the work with very little waste.
Glad you got it to work Elaine!
You had to put in the code Linda, glad they helped you!

Our two favorite things to talk about. She is also an amazing seamstress. Making most of her clothing since she was a teenager. Quite posh, I love that photo of her showing off a new outfit! I actually learned to quilt before Madge did. When she started to take classes her beginner sampler had a 'Honey bee' block, and I really wished mine had one... Continue reading
