  • 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.

    Easy Hunter's Star

    There are a lot of great videos out there on how to efficiently do the cutting to make a Hunter's Star. But, bottom line: unless you are making Hunter's Star quilts for a living, they are complicated to do the cutting correctly and consistently. This cutter makes it a breeze. Place your material and cut. Done!

    so easy to sew!

    my mom got this die, and I have only gotten around to trying it out in the last month-- sorry I waited so long! The blocks go together very easily- and even where I haven't been perfectly accurate in my sewing, everything lines up beautifully!

  • mary · 8/15/2017

    Awesome for making the Hunter's Star but...

    This die makes perfect pieces that go together in a snap but the way it is laid out only allows for efficient fabric cutting of either 2 color quilts or scrappy light/dark quilts. There are so many neat variations; some that have the stars in a different color way for example; that it would be nice to have that option. You can see it's laid out to make the most use of fabric and there's probably no way to get both efficient use and different layout options.

    Why did I wait so long?

    Can't believe I waited so long to get this die. I would never have attempted cutting without these dies and now both the queen size bed quilt and king size bed quilt are almost finished!

    Hunter Star die

    I haven't used the die yet, but am excited to make one of these ASAP! All my Go dies are useful to me and have enjoyed using them....

  • Susan · 7/27/2017

    Beautiful

    I am so happy I got this die because you can do so many things with it.

  • Marie D. · 5/18/2017

    Wonderful

    Can't imagine cutting out all the pieces without this die!

  • Tammy · 4/24/2017

    Wonderful

    I couldn't even imagine cutting this one out without the die. Glad I bought it.

  • Pat · 4/21/2017

    Love this die

    I have made several quilts with this die and plan on using it in our charity quilt group. I am finding out for me it is better to finger press all units when stitching together and giving it a good press when it is made into the 12 inch block.

  • Joanne · 3/20/2017

    So excited to finally get this die!

    I have waited for a long time to get this die and I am so happy to now have it. This will make construction of this block SO much easier, accurate, and quicker! Thank you for this one!
