Fast cutting for quilts & more

apple core die & quilt, with GO! Baby cutter

New Accuquilt GO! dies have arrived! We've added some interesting new shapes to our Accuquilt line, for quilting, appliqué, and other uses. If you don't know the Accuquilt system, it's a roller cutter that comes in two sizes, along with maanhy dies to cut fabric strips, triangles, squares and other geometric shapes; specialty quilt shapes such as Double Wedding Ring, Apple Core and more; and lots of fun appliqué shapes like animals, flowers, letters etc. The cutters are very easy to use and super time-saving! Stop in any time for a demonstration, and remember you can use our cutter for your projects if you attend any of our clinics (see our schedule or class descriptions for clinic details).

the new rag dies are great for use with flannel fabrics
The cutters some in two sizes: GO! Baby (see above) cuts all the 5" and 6" dies, and the GO! cutter (below) can handle all the available dies.

Some of our Craft Land pre-cuts work great with the GO! system. You can use fat quarter packs to make the beautiful batik tumbler quilt, and our 6½" Layer Cake squares make a lovely baby quilt - check out baby Harper on her barnyard tumbler quilt. Now we also have the baby tumbler - you could use our Maxi Roll  of 3½" with that one for cute little tumblers.
