Overview

Use GO! dies with your GO! Big Electric, 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.

    great

    Cuts great. Even easy to sew in the small corners.

    Like

    As with most dies you have to have scant 1/4 seams or it doesn't work. But with that said I like the die and will be using it lots in the furture

    Really like this die

    So many possibilities with this die. I'm eager to try other pattern combinations.

    great product but just a hair off

    I too had to make some adjustment with my seam but love the possibilities for various block changes so that my quilts can have variety. Definitely a must have for your collection.

    On Way To Becoming One of My Favorites

    Just got this die at AQS show and I am having a lot of fun with it. Cutting away and experimenting with it.

    While only 4 stars - I am following the instructions but only getting 4 1/4 finished squares. Using 1/4" piecing foot on machine that only has center needle position. I think you must use a scant 1/4" seam not regular 1/4" if you want to have 4 1/2" finished block.

    I have lots of die and this is on its way to becoming one of my favorites.

    Kite

    I love this BOB! That means block on board. Everything is included on one die, so you can start right away. I liked it so much, I bought two and gave one to my friend!!

    Flexible with a modern feel

    There are many design possibilities with this die. I am looking forward to trying several options. The pieces fit together really well because they are designed specifically to assist with piecing. The kite piece has always cut cleanly for me. The half equilateral triangles leave threads in the same places each time. I have tried cutting with different layers of fabric and found that four layers works best. All the threads do not cut even with six layers. This is a minor problem, but annoying. The piecing of this block is more difficult than I had anticipated. I like the modern feel of this block. I would buy it again.
