GO! Hunter Star-12" Finished (55166)
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.

    Excited to finally make my Hunter Star Quilt!

    I have been dreading all the cutting needed to make a king quilt. This die will speed things up incredibly.

    Save cutting time

    I cannot imagine trying to make a hunter's star quilt without Accuquilt and the hunter star die--it would be tedious!
    A few hints: cut 4"x 10" rectangles, stack 6, carefully place on the die (there won't be much waste.) where several pieces come together there is a tiny triangle in between--your fabric might get caught in there, so be patient removing your fabric from that area! And keep it cleaned out with the tool made for that purpose. Most importantly, if you cut on the straight grain of fabric in either direction you will be sewing on the bias, slow and steady wins the race! No matter how careful I was I ended up with some wonky 6" squares. TRIM them! Mine ended up at 6 1/4" so I had to adjust my math to get the finished quilt the right size, keep that in mind. It's a fun project and a beautiful pattern!
    One final important tidbit--but a LOT of fabric! I didn't buy enough and now I can't get more so I'm going to have to add a border which was not in my original plan.

    Die Problem

    I tried everything I could think of to make my pieces fit from starching the fabric, to buying new mats. I even took the die to my local quilt shop and they couldn't make it fit. I cut pieces with a friend's die and it worked great. It took several weeks and many frustrating phone calls to customer service to get them to agree that I had a defective die. They even told me it was past the years warranty period when it wasn't. I finally got a new die and it worked like a dream. As much as the dies cost, I wish Accuquilt had better quality control. Most of them are fantastic but sometimes there are real defects.

    Love It

    In less than a day I had enough piece accurately cut to make an over sized queen quilt. I love make quilts and blankets but always stuck to mainly squares because I hated cutting the other shapes. Now I'm expanding. Up next is a Double Wedding Ring using an accuquilt die.

  • Meg · 1/18/2017

    Love it

    This is the first die I bought for my new cutter. Awesome. In less than a day I had enough pieces accurately cut for a queen size quilt. I love making quilts but always hated cutting the piece. Now I fly through cutting the pieces and love it.

  • Gisela · 12/26/2016

    Beautiful

    The die makes the most beautiful quil and certainly takes the work out of cutting.
