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.
The quilting method I use is a quilt as you go method that requires strips to attached the quilted blocks, up until I got my strip cutter, I was using a ruler and scissors to cut my strips to correct width. Not anymore! So easy, so quick, wish I had purchase this system long time ago!

The first 1 3/4" GO strip die I ordered was had rust on the blades. I saw it when testing the die. I called and sent it back. Only drawback was having to wait for them to receive order before sending out replacement. Not good when the whole process took 3 weeks from start to end but at least Accuquilt stood by their warranty.
Love this die though. I needed 1 3/4" squares and found the strip cutter. It will make it so easy to cut.
I would give the die 5 stars and Accuquilt service 2 stars. Don't think I should have to wait on an order that was defective.

I recently purchased a pattern book I had been looking 2 years for. The lady at the quilt shop was trying very hard to sell me all the templates for the pattern I was making first. I told her I had an accuquilt and wouldn't need them. She said oh but the don't have the right size strip cutter. I pulled out my cell phone and proved I just need the book. This is a great size for older patterns and I love it.

I like to frame my quilts with a narrow border and then a wider one.The accurate cutting of the strips make projects picture perfect.

I just finished putting a baby quilt top together and needed a small border to finish off the project. This size was perfect to make the strips I needed. This is a great size for sashing between blocks as well. I know I will use it a great deal.

I am able to cut small strips accurately with this die. I am using the strips to make my accent border for my latest quilt. It looks very good!!!

Log cabin quilts with uneven logs often use a 1.75 strip to finish at 1.25 inches. Cutting 1 is enough for me, but 5? unlikely without the GO! die.
