Overview

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.

    Great die

    Easy to put the pieces together. Really like the block and it looks much more complicated than it is

  • William · 4/21/2016

    Fast Fast Fast

    You will be amazed at how fast you can make the blazing star quilt. Have Fun.

  • dorothy · 1/30/2016

    a beautiful challenge

    Presents a beautiful challenge, allowing your
    color taste to be fulfilled.

  • Hyla · 1/15/2016

    Great die, but would like to see each cutter set have an identifying letter on them.

    This die is great and cuts very accurately.
    I do have a suggestion though. It would be really handy if Accquilt could put the letters A, B, & C on each set of the cutters, like they do with the angles on the strip dies.
    I got confused by the diagram on the package and cut the first pieces on the wrong ones and got very mixed up when I tried to lay the pieces out.
    After I finally discovered my mistake and cut the new pieces on the right cutters, the pieces when together very easily.

    Blazing Star

    Thank you Eleanor Burns for this die. I have wanted to make this one and can hardly wait to get it done. I know that the cutting will be a breeze and putting it together will be as easy. My thanks to accu quilt for making my quilting experience so much more fun.

  • Diane · 1/9/2016

    Blazing Star

    It should come with a warning that it's a beautiful star design but not Eleanor's usual ease of cutting or directions. It takes cutting each color separately and total concentration on cutting positions of each color.

  • Donna · 1/4/2016

    Very Excited!

    Eleanor Burns is going to make this block easy with this die! I have made this block before without the die and it was challenging, but with the Blazing Star die it was no problem!

  • Ronda · 1/2/2016

    Awesome!

    Blazing Star is a wonderful addition to the Accuquilt die collection. Makes a lovely quilt! Looks difficult- made easy!

  • Kathleen · 1/2/2016

    Eleanor Burns makes it easy

    I purchased 2 of these dies, one for me and one for my Daughter for Christmas.
    The video makes it look easy, E.B. Makes everything easy, and Accuquilt dies are wonderful. Haven't had a chance to try it yet but looking forward to giving it a try.

  • Sue · 12/30/2015

    This was a birthday gift of the large go cutter.

    I am enjoying getting starting with the different dies and look forward to making many original quilts that I can use my die cutter shapes. I am getting them fairly quickly since we just had a holiday.
