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 size

    Love this die for creating geometric quilts.

  • Sunni · 10/10/2011

    Great for Sampler Quilts!

    You can't beat the versatility of a standard size square die! I am working on a sampler quilt that often calls for a 3.5" square. I love the fast accurate cuts!
    I don't like that the die is askew. I wish the squares on the die would line up.

    Reply from AccuQuilt:

    Hello Sunni and thank you for your review! We angle the square (or shape) on the die so it makes a more clean and accurate cut, as well as allowing for better momentum through the cutter. It's like driving over a speed bump...it's less jarring to drive over the speed bump diagonally. That also applies to rolling a straight edge blade through the fabric cutter.

    Since the shape is angled, be sure to align the fabric (along the lengthwise grain) with the diagonal alignment of the shapes...not the edges of the die board. For more information on how to determine the lengthwise grain, see our YouTube video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq8Z4CWL4PM

    Sincerely,

    The AccuQuilt Team

    I made mini charm packs

    I love this die! I used it to cut mini charm packs out of my modern fabric scraps. It was fast and accurate. I was able to tidy up my scraps quickly and arrange my fabric in little charm packs that I sold.

    Mission Quilters

    I purchased this die for our Church Mission Quilters, and they are thrilled with the accuracy of each square - perfect squares every time. I believe they cut over 100 squares the first time they used the die. They now want to purchase a strip die.

    Thank you, Accuquilt, from our Mission Quilters.

    A little disappointed

    The 3 1/2 " die I received does not cut accurate ,its just off by 1/4 on one side no matter if i cut single or 4 layers. it does save on cutting so I adjust my patterns. No such problems with other dies in my mix and match set.

    Good companion die

    I cut 3.5 inch squares for my scrap stash, and this can speed things up considerably. It is great for cutting squares of background fabric to add squares onto bricks cut with the 3.5 x 6.5 inch die. Makes an offset pattern in brick quilts that is interesting and quick.

    Like it

    I like this die, not as much as some of the others, but it is very handy when I have to make patchwork bags...saves me a lot of time.
