Overview

This GO! Drunkard's Path-7" Finished die enables you to cut multiples at a time of a traditionally difficult shape. The fun, off-kilter shapes in this die are normally difficult to create with scissors or a rotary cutter. Use this die with your GO!, GO! Big, and Studio fabric cutter to cut up to six pieces of 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.

    Love this die with the center notch

    This is the second quilt we have cut with this die. I must say that I was Impress how easy this went together. Matching the notch in the center was sooo easy.

  • Victoria · 8/23/2011

    technique sensitive

    this is a great die, but you have to be careful with fabric shifting or stretching on the bias.

  • Judy · 8/10/2011

    excellent

    This is the first curved die I have used and was not too confident it would be easy, but I was wrong. I used it at the Go retreat and it truly was easy. The key is pinning the notch-very great idea Accuquilt!, and using a scant quarter inch.
    I would rate it 5 stars.

  • Judy · 8/5/2011

    Love this size and the ease of cutting!

    I love curved patterns, but I hate cutting them out. This die is wonderful - I'm using 2 different fabrics and cutting out both parts of the design. I'll use them opposite each other and in the end have 2 great quilts! I love the speed and ease of die cutting!

  • Marcia · 8/3/2011

    Best die yet!

    Love, love, love this die. I never knew how easy it could be to sew curves when your pieces are cut accurately. I'm using this die to make an original design of a quilt for my son and daughter-in-law and I just love it.

  • AMS · 7/14/2011

    What a DREAM!

    Love the consistency of the cut, one of the main reasons curves can be a nightmare to sew and line up...Project gets done so much quicker! Will definitely plan on getting the 3 1/2" version soon!

  • Maryellen · 7/8/2011

    Excellent die

    I have been sewing dresses for years, so I wasn't afraid of curves. This is an excellent way to produce a great design for quilts, and the layouts are endless. The die's built in center notch makes lining up the edges easy. Cut and sew a 24 block table runner in about an hour, add borders and quilt. So easy, so fast, and looks challenging, but isn't. As with the longer dies, you may need to lift the cutting mat and smooth out the fabric after rolling 1/2 way through cutter.

  • Deonn · 6/22/2011

    Conquer your fear of curves

    Finally! Smooth cuts, perfect curves, a little notch in the center to line up the pieces, and the blocks nearly made themselves! In fact, the blocks went together so quickly, that I cut out and made a lap quilt in one day! I love these curves! Everything fits together without hills and valleys. And it appears that the design possibilities are endless. Thanks, AccuQuilt - you've helped me conquer my fear of curves!

    AWESOME!

    If you have ever wanted to try a Drunkard's Path, this die is great. It saves untold hours of cutting, makes perfect blocks, and creates an easy sewing experience because of the matching notches. I would recommend buying both the 3 1/2" and 7" sizes because you can use them together in the same quilt for even more versatility. These blocks are the exact size blocks that are used in a very popular Drunkard's Path book on the market today. I bought the templates that went with that book but will never use them now because of the Accuquilt dies.
