Overview

This GO! Blazing Star-12" Finished by Eleanor Burns die cuts 3 specialized triangles to create radiant star shapes. Use this die with your GO!, GO! Big, GO! Baby, or Studio fabric cutter to cut up to six layers of 100% cotton fabric at once.

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.

    Blazing Star

    Great die. I would have never tried it without it. Makes life so much easier!!!

  • Cheri · 2/15/2017

    Tough Nut cracked

    I was always intimidated by this square. Finally, I bit the bullet and bought the die. I am so glad I did. Not only did the die make it easier, but the instructions on piecing the pieces together were pretty easy for this novice sewer to follow and the result was something I take pride. Because the pieces are close in shape, I recommend marking the die with the letter of the shape before starting to cut so when you lift them off, you know which piece is which. I also recommend not doing a fan fold of the fabric. Otherwise, good instructions and great die.

    Blazing Star Die

    This is wonderful, it has saved me tons of time and keeps all the pieces accurate.
    Great design.

    Great Die

    I am so thrilled with my newest die. I have already cut out my newest project. I am so thrilled with Blazing Star as well as all my other ones.

    Beautiful LeMoyne Star!

    Accuquilt dyes make the precision cutting so easy. I used to only attempt blocks without triangle shapes because I could never make the points match up (I am terrible at cutting apparently!) This is a beautiful design & so easy now to complete!

  • Anne · 11/5/2016

    Love my accuquilt

    This Blazing Star design is so easy to complete with the accuquilt cutter! I no longer have problems matching up points. I used to make quilt designs that were sort of like 'crazy quilts' because nothing quite matched up the way that it was supposed to. Now the blazing star is perfect! Thank you Eleanor Burns and Accuquilt!

  • Jeanne · 10/20/2016

    love these blocks

    I have not made a quilt with this die yet , but have used it to make sample blocks .
    It works wonderful and Eleanor's tip are great.

  • Jean M · 10/4/2016

    Poor Cutting Directions

    This die makes a beautiful star BUT the cutting directions included with the die are poor at best!. The instructions need to be rewritten to clearly stated in how fabric for each section of the star A, B, and C should be placed on the die because it DOES vary by piece! And, the video fails to indicate this detail -- the A section is cut differently then B and C! The sewing instructions are also not clearly written. I'm a seasoned quilter so was able to figure out, aside from the instructions, on how to piece this block. Please fix and communicate to those who have purchased this die -- we shouldn't have to buy Eleanor's booklet to get correct cutting and sewing instructions. Also, the video with Eleanor is great for those that haven't purchased the die, but if you are in the process of cutting out fabric for a quilt, you don't want to spend 20 minutes watching her video, which also doesn't clearly indicate how the fabric for each section of the block needs to be placed on the die.

    Complicated made easy!

    I have always loved the Blazing Star block but was afraid it was just too compicated - not so with this fantastic die!!!! Com[plicated has been made easy and I so look forward to the wonderful blocks soon to be made!

  • Lori · 8/27/2016

    Blazing star die

    Love this block. It's a difficult block made easy with the accuquilt die. My girlfriend had the die and once I used it, I knew I had to have it for myself.
