Use GO! dies with your GO! and GO! Baby Fabric Cutters to cut precise, accurate shapes in just seconds.
Features and Benefits:
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.
Warranty: AccuQuilt GO! dies are guaranteed for one year.
This is my favorite die. I am using the 3" med. hex and I'm hand piecing (not EPP). I quickly cut out a batch of hexes from my scrap stash, use a small sq. Omnigrid ruler to mark my stitching lines, then off I go to hand piecing! There is no need to keep checking my stitching lines front and back...if the hexes are lined up, so also are the lines. I cannot believe how fast this quilt is coming together!
:-). So much fun! Looking forward to using the large Hexie next.

This die is great for cutting papers or fabrics for English Paper Piecing. You can also sew the hexies by machine. Hexies are everywhere, make it easy with the Go!

This die makes it so easy to cut out hexies, and having 3 different sizies makes it even beter then ever. Sves alot of time.

I think that once I have this die I will try a hexagon quilt. I have not been willing to before because of the cutting difficulty.

So muck easier to sew when all the pieces are exact.

After making several small hexie projects with English Paper-piecing and folding circles into hexies, I tried cutting out with a template and used triangles with equilateral triangle template. Better, but only manages to make lap quilt and really wanted a bed-sized one. Finally I picked up this and companion triangle dies. Wow, made a beautiful scrappy 1800's hexagon quilt for my queen-size bed that Eleanor Burns has borrowed. Love it!!

Boy, does this one ever save time on those pesky hexies! I do NOT enjoy cutting these by hand and this makes it a THOUSAND times better!!! Yeah! I bought this recently to teach a class that involved hexagons and thought it would speed up the cutting process for my students--did it ever! Thanks!

I made a Quilt in a Day Honeycomb quilt. Spent a whole day cutting 162 hexagons, and 324 triangles. Not all the pieces were perfect if my rotary cutter was angled slightly. So, everything didn't match perfectly. I purchased the Accu Quilt Go Baby, this hexagon die and the triangle die. I cut my hexagons and triangles perfectly and had a table runner sewn together in no time. I am hooked.

I haven't actually made a hexie quilt yet, but I have used this die for scrap management. When I finish a project I cut the leftover scraps into squares and hexagons and store in stacks! So, someday soon I will have enough to start a scrappy hexie quilt!! Love it!

I used the 3" die to cut out a king size quilt. It was so fast to cut the hexagons - I never would have been able to piece it together in a years time without the hexagon die. I need to figure out how to finish a border on it so I can finish it. My "to do" project for this year.
