Use GO! dies with your GO! and GO! Baby Fabric Cutters to cut precise, accurate shapes in just seconds.

Features and Benefits:

  • Cut so much more in less time—Cut up to 6 layers of 100% cotton fabric at once
  • Easiest to use—Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
  • Get accurate cuts every time—No slipping rulers or mistakes
  • Create quilts you never thought you would—AccuQuilt makes cutting curvy classic quilt patterns a snap
  • Save fabric with Two Tone Foam—Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut
  • Safe to use—No blades come anywhere near your fingers
  • No more math—Geometric shapes are designed with an accurate 1/4" seam allowance in the design
  • Quilt more, clip less—No more clipping all those dog-eared corners
  • Quick and easy applique—Apply fusible web to fabric prior to cutting

Storage: Organize GO! dies with AccuQuilt GO! Die Storage Rack (55115).

Care & Maintenance: Use adhesive roller to clean lint and thread from dies. After each use, with the die pick provided with the cutter, remove any threads imbedded between blades and foam. It's normal for threads to get caught where blades meet in a die. Remove with tweezers or die pick. Die blades never need to be sharpened.

Die Tips:

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
  • Use cutting mats that matches size of each die.
  • For best results, cut with die blades running under roller at an angle. Do not cut with blades parallel to roller.
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
  • Some dies feature specially designed corners to aid in alignment and pre-cutting.
  • For fast applique, apply fusible web to fabrics, then cut shapes with dies.
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch.
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.

Warranty: AccuQuilt GO! dies are guaranteed for one year.

Time saver Review by Diane
Overall Rating

I ordered this online to make a baby quilt for a friend. She really wanted a clamshell quilt but I dreaded the cutting. Then I got my Go! for Christmas and ordered this die. It even has tabs to line them up, perfect! This will cut my time cutting and piecing so I can get the quilt done before her baby shower, yay!

clamshell Review by Shirley
Overall Rating

Well, I got the clam shell die for those really irregular pieces of scrap material that the other dies may not work with. I have many years of scraps to work thru. So, the "Go Baby" and the dies that work with are going to be my summer clean up the sewing room project....

Perfect for size Go! Baby Review by Marian
Overall Rating

I have wanted to use the clamshell shape for some time now, but like many others, I was intimidated by the cutting. Now it takes no time at all and they are perfect. The best bonus is that it is sized for my Go! Baby.

Cutting is very easy-BUT.... Review by Mary Ann
Overall Rating

I wish that you had a tutorial for this particular die. I guess that I'm a visual learner, and am having some difficulty getting started on a clam shell project.


Hi, Mary Ann! I don't know if you've seen this video on the Clamshell-4" inch die, but here's a link to it just in case: http://www.accuquilt.com/go-clamshell-4-finished.html. We hope this helps.

Bought for a friend Review by Gail
Overall Rating

A friend wanted to make a Clamshell quilt but didn't want to spend all the time it takes to cut shells, so we purchased the die and I burrowed the Go Cutter to her. She couldn't get over how f-a-s-t she was done. She plans to do another one after she finishes the first one. Then maybe some purses and bags...

Clamshell - small Review by Susan
Overall Rating

Have always loved the look of clamshell quilts. This die makes it uber-simple to gut that complex shape and put a quilt together, quickly. The tabs really help line up the shapes.
