With the GO! Trees by Reiko Kato, you'll create stylized trees for your folk art or woodland-themed quilt in a fraction of the time. This die, inspired by award-winning quilter Reiko Kato's signature style, cuts three different tree shapes that you can use for a variety of applique and quilt projects. The tree shapes are 3" by 3 3/8" when finished and coordinate perfectly with the GO! Small Houses by Reiko Kato for a charming scene. It's compatible with your GO!, GO! Baby, GO! Big, 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.

    Love this little trees that go with the houses.

  • dayna · 7/3/2012

    Great trees!

    these are awesome with the Reico Kato houses. Work well on sweatshirts for Christmas if done with holiday fabric or embellished. Great around the bottom of tree skirts. Holiday valances anyone? So many uses!

  • Marguerite · 6/28/2012

    Love the shapes

    These are cute chunky shapes. I love them. Great on a baby quilt with sheep or other animals.

  • Nanette · 6/26/2012

    Great with the little houses

    The trees are really well done. A perfect complement to Reiko Kato's houses--I have a really neat snowy countryside planned with the houses and trees positioned along hills and valleys covered in snow. I would have liked some larger sizes, but the details are good and the variations are a delight to work with.
