Overview

Use GO! dies with your GO! Big Electric, 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.

    Great for making a simple baby quilt

    I liked the look of this die and did a Google search for Kite baby quilts. I found a picture of a simple Kite quilt that is perfect for this die. All pieces cut easily and so exact. Piecing was easy

    CUTE BOB

    I just like the design. As a die it makes cutting and assembly of the block simple. It is easy to use for both adults and kids and can be as colorful as you want. Matches up well with other dies to create fun quilts.

  • Barbara · 3/11/2016

    love the possibilities

    I have come to realize that I really like to work with a simple color scheme. Two color quilts suit me just fine, and especially if one of the colors is white! This die and the sample quilt show that off well. As yet, I have not used the die, but have yards of fabric that will be destined for it. I love that I won't have to deal with Y seams. I did that once, years ago, when I made a Lone Star quilt. It is not something that I would seek out again! I've got so many quilts lined up now that I've discovered Accuquilt, but this one is on the "short" list!

    Inspiring

    I have a plan for this -- project should be awesome.

  • Jackie · 2/15/2016

    Love it

    Have always loved the look of these stars, but have been daunted by the thought of 'wasting' fabric trying to get them cut right. This die cuts them properly and takes the fear out of trying a new pattern. As a self taught quilter, this is perfect.

  • Barb · 1/20/2016

    Cant wait

    I cant wait to use this. When I retire in a few months I will be going to town I am sure. Thanks for such a great product.

  • Diane · 1/15/2016

    Go Kite

    What a fun little filler in a quilt. Also makes great corners on a border. Fast and accurate every time and adds that interest in a quilt or wall hanging especially.

  • Lucinda · 1/6/2016

    Excellent kite die

    I've put together a few blocks with scraps to try the die. I'll be adding more blocks for a lap quilt. Had no problems.

  • Michaela · 1/4/2016

    very cute

    Saw the display quilt they show with this die so just had to order it!! Doing mine in 30's prints... Can not wait!!

  • Annette · 12/28/2015

    New Favorite

    I ordered this die for a baby quilt project. It was so easy to make and I had no difficulty matching seams and keeping everything lined up. It is definitely my new favorite. Thanks Accuquilt.
