Overview

Create graphic quilt patterns without all the guesswork with the GO! Winding Ways-8" Finished. Use this die with your GO!, GO! Baby, GO! Big, or Studio fabric cutter to precisely cut all the pieces you need for a winding ways quilt. Matching notches on curved seams and an included 1/4" seam allowance makes piecing complex patterns a breeze.

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.

    winding way

    Really like the way you can cut an entire block with one pass. A friend used it to cut an entire quilt in about 2 hours. Said she would never have done it any other way.

    So easy

    I was amazed at how easy the pieces came together! Matching & pinning the notches of adjoining pieces first made the sewing so easy. I was able to make my quilt very quickly! Thank you

  • Joyce · 3/2/2017

    Great block

    Love the fast and easy cutting, but the best part is having the registration marks to match up! Makes this block go together very easily! I am an accuquilt for life fan! Keep bringing new designs please!

    Love this die

    I had this die on my wish list for some time. I finally got it for Christmas. It cuts perfect shapes and the pieces are easy to sew. Very happy.

    Curves begun in earnest

    Winding Ways die is Awesome

    I ordered the Winding Ways die after learning about it at a quilt meeting. It is awesome, makes accurate cutting the of the pieces so easy, and sewing the curved seams is a snap with the marking notches and my "CurveMaster" presser foot.

    Love the Die

    This is a great die, I love the die and the pattern, it made a great looking quilt. This die makes accurate cuts and easy to match up.

  • Froggie · 7/29/2016

    Super shapes

    All these shapes can be used so many different ways to make so many wonderful quilts

  • Sara · 5/16/2016

    Fabulous!

    I never would have attempted to make a winding ways quilt if I had not purchased this die. I saw a picture of someone else's quilt and decided I want to make one, too. Cutting was a breeze and accomplished in short order! I didn't even mind sewing the curves because the instructions on the die packaging told me what to stitch first and how to press the seams. I am VERY happy with how this quilt turned out!

    Winding Ways for GO

    I got this die for Christmas last year. After cutting the width of fabric strips to the right width, I began stacking them in groups of 4 to run through the Accuquilt GO. What a boon for saving time and cutting accurate pieces! Well, I got so exited that I began putting the blocks together before I finished the cutting. Before I knew it, I'd completed 24 perfect 8.5 inch blocks! Thanks to the perfectly aligned markings, I didn't even need to pin pieces together before sewing most of the block. I've been quilting on and off for 40+ years. The biggest reason I didn't get more done was that cutting out took so long. Not an excuse any longer! Thanks, Accuquilt, for one of the best innovations since the rotary cutter!
