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.

    Love the die to make the pointed plate

    I have a studio cutter and much prefer to use this Go die than the studio Dresden Plate die because the part of the die for the pointed blades is cut straight across on the Go die instead of pointed as it is on the Studio die. I do not enjoy needle turn applique. So the straight tops make it easy to machine sew them into pointed tops. The notches make it simple to sew the blades together for a plate that lays flat. Which makes it easy to hand or machine applique.
    I have wanted to make a Dresden Plate quilt for over 20 years and have purchased at least 2 wedge rulers, but kept putting it off. I'm glad I waited for the die. On my first protect I was able to cut out enough blades to make both a king and a queen quilt in a pleasurable amount of time. Now I have a project to take with me to those places I have to sit and wait; and one at home for my sewing machine.
    I'll use either use Eleanor Burns' method of sewing the circles; sewing the right side of the fabric circle to the wrong side of a press on interfacing circle and then turning it right side out. Or I might use my embroidery machine to sew the fabric and interfacing together. I guess it depends on if I'm in the mood to spend the time sewing or cutting.

    Finally working on my Dresden quilt thanks to this Die

    I've been wanting to do this quilt for such a long time but was so dreading cutting all the curves and circles. This die made super quick work of a very tedious task. I'm so excited to be able to finally complete this dream quilt.

    Time Saver!

    I have come to the conclusion that if I can't use my accuquilt to cut my blocks for a quilt, I'll find a different pattern where I can! Not just because it's a time saver but because with age, comes aches and pains, and the dies and cutters make it so much easier for me.

    Awesome Machine and dies

    Our Quilt Guild had a class on a Dresden Block, the teacher had authored a book on the subject. I was unable to attend, so I purchased the Dresden Plates die. When I saw the Guild members I let them know I had cut out 166 Dresden blades, with perfect rounded tops, in just one hour !! I love my Go Machine and all the dies. It is so nice not to have my hands ache after cutting fabric out, it is just one of the
    problems you have when you are 80 years old !!!

    Easy cut out

    I've always wanted to make a Dresden plate pattern, but dreaded cutting the pieces out. Now I can do it so simply and quickly ..

  • Mendy · 2/19/2016

    Great product

    Takes the stress out of cutting all the pieces. Never have to worry about not getting your measuring perfect!

    Who doesn't love a dresden!

    This is a prefect set of dies if you are like me. I love making Dresden plate quilts and this set comes with both the rounded and triangular plates in one set! Love being able to cut a whole set for a large quilt in less than an hour. My daughter just hand cut sets for a queen size quilt took a couple of days! I make tiny baby quilts- some as small as 24 x 24 so one set of plates will make a very cute quilt!
