The start of a new month means another Die to Try die, and September’s is the GO! Whirling Star-12” Finished Die! This versatile Block on Board (BOB) Die is just what quilters of any skill level need to complete a sophisticated looking block that is easier than ever to construct using the AccuQuilt system.

All About the Die to Try Program

The Die to Try program offers an exclusive new die on the first Tuesday of every month.


These dies are available during their release month while supplies last on the AccuQuilt website or at your local retailer. When the next month starts, another new die, more free patterns, and additional tutorials will be available to quilters.


Quilters can vote to add a Die to Try die to our permanent die collection, meaning more quilters will be able to grab the die if they were unable to during its special launch.



Star Gaze with Ease

The GO! Whirling Star-12” Finished Die features eight geometric shapes that can safely, quickly, easily, and accurately be cut in a single pass through any GO! Fabric Cutter, including the Studio 2 with an appropriate adapter.

Stay Starry-Eyed

Each of these patterns utilizes the GO! Whirling Star-12” Finished Die alongside at least one GO! Strip Cutter Die and other GO! Dies, allowing any quilter to reach the quilting stars.
