Overview

This GO! Ohio Star-12" Finished die enables you to cut an entire block in a single pass, helping you easily create the beloved Ohio Star block quilt easily. This die is quicker and easier to use than scissors or a rotary cutter, and cuts multiple pieces of fabric at a time. All the pieces and parts are on one die board so you can cut everything in a flash with your GO!, GO! Big, GO! Baby, or Studio fabric cutter.

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.

    One of my favorite blocks

    This versatile block can be used again and again with differing fabrics and colors. The notches save time from me having to cut them and cause everything to accurately line up.

    Sew Easy Stars

    I have always wanted to make Ohio Star blocks, but had difficulty cutting perfectly matched pieces. This die helps get it right every time! Thank you GO CUTTER!

  • Connie M · 4/21/2017

    Stars are my passion

    I love star quilts and this one is easy peasy with the GO! die. And we all know, "Better cuts make better quilts"!

  • Denise · 3/28/2017

    Precise

    The precise cutting with this die, makes making stars perfect and therefore makes your squares perfect.

  • M · 3/5/2017

    Great item, just needs a tweek.

    I would not attempt this pattern without the Accuquilt die. However,I do have issues sometimes with the placement of the material on the triangle pieces. The dies are at a slight angle instead of "straight on" and makes it more difficult for me when placing several pieces of material on them. Consequently I sometimes don't get a full triangle.

  • Linda · 3/4/2017

    Great die!

    Love the Ohio Star die. I blazed through in no time cutting out enough Ohio Stars for a lap quilt. It was fun and easy, and the points match up so well! I am very pleased with this die -- the first one I've ever used, too!

    Ohio Star

    I have been quilting for 20+ years and have made many Ohio Star quilts. Using the Accuquilt Ohio Star Die made the triangles and squares exact!! Sewing them together was a breeze and when my blocks were complete all the points were perfect!!! Love this die!!
