Make these Fun Quilt Patterns with New 10th Anniversary Appliqué Dies: Quickly and Easily
2018 marks the 10th year that AccuQuilt began creating tools and free quilt patterns to help you Cut Time and Quilt More. We are so glad you welcomed us into your homes and quilting guilds. To show our gratitude, we have some fun product releases for you this year.
To kick off our celebration, we’re bringing back three of our most popular original appliqué dies. The GO! Limited-Edition 10th Anniversary Die Collection features GO! Leaping Frog, GO! Airplanes and GO! Elephants.
These appliqué dies are not only adorable, but they each include a free downloadable embroidery. Use Blanket, Satin or Motif stitches to reflect your own unique style.
GO! Hop to It Table Runner
This table runner will make dinner a hopping good time and is so quick and easy to put together. All you’ll need is the GO! Leaping Frog appliqué die, the GO! Qube Mix & Match 8″ Block and the GO! Strip Cutter-2 ½” to get started.
The die will cut up to four frogs with fusible web at one time. You can either stack your fabric, so all the frogs will be swimming in the same direction, or fanfold your fabric so the frogs will be splashing around in opposite directions.
Watch this great getting started video and get the full pattern here.
For embroidery tips, take a look at this video. Don’t forget the frog’s eyes!
GO! Propeller Planes Quilt
To make this project, you will need the GO! Airplanes appliqué die, the GO! Qube Mix & Match 8” Block and the GO! Strip Cutter-2 ½”. We used three different blue fabrics to create the wind and sky, then grabbed some colorful scraps from our stash to cut the planes. The GO! Airplanes die has seven shapes that come together to make two plane options – a propeller plane and a biplane. This pattern uses a four-patch block and a special propeller block that is made using die #5, #7 and #8 from the GO! Qube Mix & Match Block. Get started on this quilting adventure by downloading detailed instructions and watching this instructional video.
Don’t forget, the anniversary dies come with free embroidery downloads. The airplanes are directional shapes, so watch this video for tricks.
GO! Elephant Carousel Quilt
Create adorable children’s quilts that help them sleep peacefully through the night with GO! Elephants. For this whimsical quilt, we used the GO! Elephants appliqué die, the GO! Qube Mix & Match 8″ Block and the GO! Strip Cutter-2 ½”. GO! Elephants die gives you both a small and large elephant on one board. It’s a 5″x10″ die, so be sure to use the right sized cutting mat.
