Description

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.

Big Clamshells - fast Review by Susan
Overall Rating

This die makes it easy to put a fairly large quilt together, quickly.

Clam shell Review by Leah
Overall Rating

My friend Latifah shared her Glam Clam tutorial on Craftsy a few years ago. Only problem, hand cutting the shell and marking the pinning points. This die is what convinced me to buy the GO. I already wanted the hexagon die, but wasn't sure if I should buy the GO for one die. So far my son in law cut out enough shells for at least two quilts and has one top already finished.

Finally! Review by Linda
Overall Rating

I saw a picture of this die at the Fall IQS in Houston. Took this long for my local quilt shop to get it for me.

I love it! I would not say it is a breeze to sew, but the notches make matching pieces easier, the size is also helpful when sewing.

Cutting it out is definitely a breeze - I would not attempt this many curves with my rotary cutter.

Great Way to Experiment With Color Review by mary
Overall Rating

Not the most imaginative quilter on the block, I ordered this die because of its interesting shape. When it arrived, it set off sparks of great ideas. I grabbed my stash bins, and began choosing a variety of favorite colors, nothing coordinating. Using a hybrid bargello technique, I made lines of my clamshells, and then folded them and cut them, and repieced them. Gorgeous! I cannot wait to try another technique but lots more quilting to do...
