Quick Overview

This GO! Strip Cutter will have four angled guide lines printed on the foam surface. Lines at 90-degrees, 30-degrees, 45-degrees, and 60-degrees allow quilters to cut strips into squares and several types of diamonds that can be used to make classic quilts like the Lone Star and Tumbling Blocks. These preprinted angled guide lines will make it easy to create a variety of shapes with consistent cuts that will save time and fabric. The GO! Strip Cutter Dies are hugely popular amongst quilters, and now the creative possibilities with Strip Cutter Dies are infinitely bigger.

  • 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.

    Love these strip cutters

    We have several of the strip cutters and the 5.5" is an ideal addition to our collection.

  • Jeannie · 8/26/2017

    Love this Cutting die

    I love this Cutting die. It is so easy to use and I can cut multiple strips at once. This die can also cut the 5/12 strips and use them to make smaller quilt blocks. The accuquilt gonis the best thing that has been made to help with my quilting.

  • Nadine · 7/24/2017

    double use

    Recently I was looking for a 5" finished block. The search was futile until I found that I could use the 5 I/2" strip cutter for both strips and squares. I watched the tutorial a few times until I felt I could do it and was able to get all the 51/2" squares I needed. It was so simple.

  • Camilla · 7/11/2017

    Love those strip dies!

    I already have the 2 1/2" strip die (my most used die). I recently purchased the 5 1/2" to add to the collection. I absolutely love it! I can get a very quick border cut, make squares and several sizes of diamonds all with one die.

  • Betty · 6/7/2017

    GO! Strip Cutter-5 1/2"

    Fantastic! My new strip cutter is even better than I anticipated. Love the fact that I can not only cut my strips, but also squares and 1/2 square triangles. Would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone.

  • Connie · 6/2/2017

  • Sharon · 5/18/2017

    Borders

    Love this for my borders. I have also cut these 6 in. strips to make smaller ones. Such a fast way of cutting

  • Tina · 5/12/2017

    5 1/2 Strip Die

    Love this die having the angled guide lines put a new spin on making faster cuts. I just love the accuracy of all the cuts. My husband calls me the mad lady quilt machine.

  • Desiree · 5/1/2017

    Oh, I need a cutting mat too

    Oh, I need a cutting mat too... Guess they didn't make that obvious enough for me so now i'm ordering that and waiting for it to be shipped so I can actually use the cutter. Of course there is shipping and handling now....it was free when I made my first initial 350$ purchase that I still can't even use.

  • Tammy · 4/23/2017

    5 inch finished strip cutter

    I love my strip cutter. Great for borders. Makes my life easy!
