Welcome to the GO! Bear’s Paw Block on Board® (BOB®). I made a variation of the Bear’s Paw block to use as a table runner. While I used red and white, my thoughts were of falling leaves. The single "paw" unit of the bear's paw looks a lot like a maple leaf.

GO! Crazy Quilt Star for the Holidays

Nov 2, 2018 9:00:00 AM / by Marjorie Busby posted in GO! Project Tutorials

0 Comments

Welcome to the  GO! Big Crazy Quilt-10" Finished Block on Board ® (BOB ®). This BOB is crazy fun and easy. Already I have made three crazy quilts with this die—and I love it. The packaging on the die has some great ideas for Crazy Quilt variations. One of the suggestions is to mix the Crazy Quilt blocks with a pieced quilt block. This die makes a finished 10" quilt square. That means it will work with the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10" Block. With that idea, I made the Crazy Quilt blocks and also made some classic Square in a Square Blocks using a set of RJR Sparkle Fat Quarters. The finished quilt is 40" x 40".

Hi, it's Marjorie and I'm sharing a quilt I made with the GO! QUBE™ Mix & Match 10" Block, the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Angles and the GO! Qube™ 10" Companion Set-Corners.

It only takes a block or two from these pattern brochures to create a beautiful quilt. In this post, I will show you how I used a single block from the companion set - angles for the center blocks and added just the Bow Tie from the Corners Qube with a Flying Geese unit to create the pieced border.

The Power of Color in Quilting

Aug 18, 2018 8:00:50 AM / by Jill Friesen posted in Inspiration

Before the invention of AccuQuilt fabric cutters, cutting fabric was probably the hardest part of quilting. But now, because fabric can be cut with ease, choosing a color scheme for your quilts may be the hardest part of quilting. While color schemes and designs are a personal choice, there are still tools you can use to make your decisions easier. One of these tools is color theory. Consider it the AccuQuilt of the color world. Color theory, a centuries-old practical guide to understanding color, is used heavily in visual arts, and you can use it too.

The Evolution of Fabric Cutting: Scissors. Rotary. Rolling Pin.

Jul 13, 2018 6:00:09 AM / by AccuQuilt posted in AccuQuilt, Inspiration

0 Comments

The heart of a quilter is stitched together of dreams and adventures, of sorrows, determination, and joy. Through each period in quilting history, quilters have had unique stories to tell. Those stories were – and are still today – reflected in their quilts. And a quilt, like its creator, is composed of more than meets the eye. Before it becomes a beautiful finished piece, though, it is first but fabric and thread. And even before the two should meet, the fabric is lovingly and meticulously – if painstakingly – cut by a quilter. In fact, quilters’ stories are not reflected only in the finished product but also in their quilting methods – methods that have improved dramatically with time and innovation. Indeed, the evolution of fabric cutting is as storied as quilting history, as detailed as an intricate pattern, and as fascinating as the life, love, and laughter that together create each quilt.

Hi, it’s Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com with a picnic quilt project for you. In the United States, Memorial Day is when we remember and honor military personnel who have died in the service of their country. Memorial Day is also the unofficial start of summer and picnics.

To Prewash or NOT to Prewash Your Fabrics

Apr 25, 2018 8:00:00 AM / by Linda Lasco posted in Uncategorized

0 Comments

And the answer? Yes!

Most of the time.

First, let’s talk about why you would want to prewash. There are two main reasons. Both are particularly important if you are buying your quilting fabrics from somewhere other than a quilt shop or a vendor catering to the needs and interests of quilters. (Who among you would do that?!) You may see fabrics that look just like what they sell in quilt shops in lesser locations, but what you may not know is that those fabrics are often printed on less-than-top-quality “greige” goods (pronounced “gray” goods), the base fabric that takes the pattern and dyes.

Hi, fellow GO! Getters! It's Gina from Gem Hill Quilts. Do you come from a large family? I happen to have 3 older brothers and 3 older sisters and let's not even talk about cousins! Most of us live in separate towns (and countries!) that are thousands of miles from one another. Having a complete family reunion is usually impossible. However, around this time last year, my mother was celebrating her 85th birthday. So, for the first time in several decades, we all managed to be at the same place and at the same time!

Make Sawtooth Stars with Embroidery Machine Hexagons

This quilt was inspired by the Starstruck pattern from the AccuQuilt website with the traditional Sawtooth Star in beautiful bright colors. The Grandmother’s Flower Garden machine embroidery adds another traditional touch to this bright and modern looking quilt. Instructions for the pieced Sawtooth Star block can be found in the AccuQuilt GO! 72 Blocks pattern set. Using the AccuQuilt GO! 12” QUBE to make this block is a breeze. I love that all the shapes are at my fingertips and there’s no searching on my shelves for specific dies. The machine embroidery used is also easy as the stitches are light and the block is stitched in a single thread color, making the hexagon blocks complete in record time. For piecing the stars, a Tonga Treats 6 Pack Happy Hour by Daniela Stout was used and that provided a wonderful selection of colors.

Make a Naptime Name Quilt with the Carefree Alphabet Die

Jan 22, 2018 12:00:00 AM / by Marjorie Busby posted in Authors, Marjorie Busby

0 Comments

The GO! Carefree Alphabet die and the GO! Carefree Numbers die have become some of my favorites. The first time I used them was for numbers in the Winter Bliss machine embroidery. After that, I created an entire quilt top using the Perfect Placement Carefree Alphabet machine embroidery set method. And in this project, a new method for spacing the letters proportionally is shown on naptime name quilts for my twin grandchildren. The letters are machine embroidered onto separate background fabric blocks. When the embroidery is complete, the blocks are trimmed vertically, stitched together, and then trimmed horizontally to create a proportionally spaced name banner. Combining the Carefree Alphabet die and some simple blocks made with the AccuQuilt GO! Qube Mix & Match 8” Block makes this a perfect project for small quilts like these.

Making perfect circles couldn’t be easier with the AccuQuilt GO! Circle die and my embroidery machine. Hi, it’s Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com, and I’ve been having fun making ISpy quilts with the Circle die, 6” Qube Mix & Match Set, and my embroidery machine.

Quilters collect many fun novelty fabrics because we see designs that inspire us to make a quilt for someone we love. Ispy quilts are also lots of fun for adults because that someone is not always a child. For this quilt, I used a Thomas the Train Print by Gullane (Thomas) Limited, designed for Quilting Treasures. With a new grandchild on the way, this was the perfect time to make a train quilt.

This throw quilt was created with one very simple block that is found in the GO! Mix & Match 144 Blocks Pattern Brochure on the AccuQuilt website. The name of the block is “Elevate” and the colors used in the fabrics are rich and beautiful. In this tutorial, I will take you through the steps for making the block, stitching it into a throw sized quilt top, and adding a pieced border that makes the block design really pop. The pieced border was added to create a continuation of the block design and a  1-1/2” border was added to frame the quilt. The quilt is made of 8 inch blocks 4 across by 6 down and the finished size is 44 x 60 inches.

Half Square Triangles Have Never Been Easier!

Half Square Triangles as Easy as Can Be!

 

Enjoy this article from the AccuQuilt Blog Archives!

 

My name is Jennifer and today I'm going to show you how it easy it is to use the GO! Half Square Triangles. I love quilting and all things fabric. After a series of athletic injuries and surgeries, I needed a relatively safe hobby so I decided to try quilting. As it turned out, I was one of those people who didn’t discover the extent of my creativity until I picked out some fabrics, picked up a needle and some thread, and made my first quilt. From then on I was hooked and quilting has become a passion in my life. I love to write and I love to quilt so starting a quilting blog was the perfect answer.

I have been blogging over at That Girl…That Quilt for the past few years. I have been quilting for almost five years. I wouldn’t call myself a traditional quilter or a modern quilter but I’m always up for trying something new. When I received the chance to try the GO! Baby® Fabric Cutter, I jumped at the chance. The GO! Baby makes cutting so easy. Working full-time and being a full-time mother, the GO! Baby allowed me to cut and finish quilts so much faster.

The first die I knew I had to have was something that would cut triangles in a snap. I was instantly attracted to the half square triangles. They are so versatile as there are hundreds of block options and something I would use frequently.

"I would advise people to send in a good quality photo for the contest. Use colors that compliment and contrast well with each other. Then think how the block would look if it’s really, REALLY big!

Embroidery Designs for Holiday Quilt Blocks

We all start thinking about Christmas projects in July, and this year is no different. The machine embroidery designs on the Holiday Medley Die are so pretty that I decided to design around that and use other dies too. The log cabin die is a favorite of mine and so is the Signature Block from the GO! Qube Mix and Match and Companion Set. Thinking about those shapes, I used Electric Quilt software to design a quilt. This tutorial is for the quilt shown and is 63 x 76 inches when finished.

Christmas in July - Make a Frosty's GO! Delight

Start Your GO! Christmas in July Project Now!

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to become an AccuQuilt GO! Mama! I absolutely love my AccuQuilt GO!® Fabric Cutter, so I was thrilled to receive the invitation to feature a project using the GO! Hexagon dies.

Christmas in July

First of all, the AccuQuilt GO! is quick, accurate, precise, and most of all, it easily cuts classic shapes with curves. One of the first GO! dies that I used was the GO! Rob Peter to Pay Paul (55068) die, which has so many lovely curves. I have always admired quilts using this classic design but never imagined I could do it. That is until I tried my GO! Rob Peter to Paul die with my GO! Fabric Cutter. The proof can be seen on the header picture of my blog, Sweet P Quilts and Creations. If you follow my blog, then you know how I feel about my AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter. I absolutely love it! I also love hexagons, so it was a no brainer to share my insights on this amazing die.

Now you all know that the mighty GO! Fabric Cutter slices through several layers of quilter’s cotton in one crank of the handle, but did you know that it also cuts wool? I thought I would do something a little different and kick it up a notch by doing the entire project in 100% wool fabric with all the cutting done with my AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter. It's the perfect Christmas in July project. SEW here we… GO!

First, I grabbed my stash of blue wool. A lot of this wool was either recycled or hand dyed before we left for this year’s snow birding trip. I precut my wool into squares about 1/2" larger than the biggest hexagon shape on the die. I ironed on some Heat and Bond Lite. This product works well to stabilize the wool and keep it from fraying.

I then grabbed my GO! Hexagons-2", 3", 5" (55011) die and the GO! Holiday Medley (55043) die and ran the wool through my AccuQuilt GO! Cutter. I recommend starting with one layer of wool as this particular wool is very thick and fluffy, and then you can work your way up to more layers. The GO! Fabric Cutter cut the wool effortlessly and could have easily taken more layers of wool. Now if you have ever hand cut wool hexagons (the old fashioned way), then you know that you can never get a perfect cut as at least one of the hexagons manages to cut wonky. With the GO!, they are perfectly accurate and each one fits right up to the other. Using your GO!, cut out 12 blue hexagons and four white hexagons.

Quilt Stars for the Holidays

The AccuQuilt GO!® Star-2", 3", 4" die is one of the first appliqué dies that I purchased. At the time, I did not have an embroidery machine and my quilt repertoire did not include raw edge appliqué. Those stars were cut so perfectly that I just had to have them.

My quilting horizons have definitely grown with the use of that die. Just after I got the Star die, I purchased an embroidery machine. Of course as a tech lover, my goal was to learn to digitize. One of the first things that I digitized was the star shape and I have been finding new ways to use it ever since.

A Simple Guide to Tumbler Quilts

Speed Quilts with Tumbler Blocks

With two small kids, I don’t have time to do any quilty prep work these days. Pressing, measuring and cutting are absolutely out of the question during the week in my house. When I heard of the AccuQuilt GO!® Fabric Cutter, I knew I just had to have it. I figured if I could cut out blocks in a fraction of the time then maybe I could find the time to make and complete new quilts. I tried out a few different dies and I made some gorgeous quilts in no time. When I tried out the GO! Tumbler-6 1/2" (55020), I had no idea that I was going to fall in love like I did.

Quilts

The Tumbler block probably got its name from the common tumbler glass it looks like. AccuQuilt carries two different tumbler block dies: 3 1/2" and 6 1/2"My favorite of the two is the 6 1/2" Tumbler. I prefer this one because it’s larger. A bigger block means I can put a quilt together faster, which makes me one happy camper.

The Tumbler block is considered a traditional block and is usually cut out with all kinds of different sized templates and rulers. I don’t have time for all that so I love using my GO! Fabric Cutter instead. It’s so easy to crank out a gazillion blocks and just start sewing away. You may find this hard to believe, but I completed this entire quilt top in less than 1.5 hours while my son took a quick nap. This is amazing—a huge thanks to AccuQuilt!

Using the Tumbler Block-6 1/2" (55020) is really easy. Start with a 7 1/2" x WOF (width of fabric) strip and follow the basic cutting directions for your GO! Fabric Cutter.

You can get seven blocks from one 7 1/2" x WOF strip but you have to make sure you start cutting on the selvage (not the folded) end of your strip. This will allow you to cut that seventh block by opening that fold. Be sure to alternate the orientation of the die each time you cut to conserve fabric and get the most cuts out of that one strip of fabric.

Once you have a large stack of blocks, you can literally just sit at your machine and start sewing. Let me also point out that the folks at AccuQuilt created the tumbler block die with specially designed corners so that the dog ears are already cut off. These clipped corners line up easily and once that seam is sewn, you end up with perfectly even rows of blocks. The GO! Cutter makes cutting identical blocks a breeze but having those special corners is just icing on my quilty cake!

Bobbing for Apples with the Apple Core Quilt Block

A Quilt Block Featuring Apples!

 

My name is Vickie from Spun Sugar Quilt Designs. I am a designer and blogger who has been quilting for over 15 years. AccuQuilt encouraged me to enlighten you about my favorite die–the GO! Apple Core. Originally, I purchased my GO!® Fabric Cutter to assist my mother-in-law in cutting kits. My mother-in-law is also an avid quilter. Due to carpel tunnel and arthritis, she has difficulty using a rotary cutter. I viewed this GO! Fabric Cutter as the perfect solution. It is quick, accurate, precise, and most of all, it cuts classic shapes with curves. One of the first GO! dies I used was the Apple Core. I absolutely love apple core quilts as I have always admired them. Truth be told, I had never made an apple core quilt. That is, not until I tried my Apple Core die with my GO! Fabric Cutter.

Let’s Get Started

Now for a little history behind the apple core quilt block design. This design is also known by several other names including the Double Ax Head, Friendship, Always Friends, The Spool, Double Bit Ax, and the Badge of Friendship.

quilt block

It is truly a fantastic shape for a One Patch Quilt. One patch charm quilts have been popular for decades. Recently, there has been a revival of the one patch quilts using the hexagons or clamshells.

Why not add the apple core to this category? Traditionally, these one patch shapes were hand pieced, but as time goes on, quilters are always looking for faster piecing methods. Now quilters are more fortunate to have die-cut shapes to further speed up their projects.

quilt block

I particularly love the GO! Apple Core die from AccuQuilt because of the size and accuracy of the cut shapes. The size of the die cuts are large enough to tackle with the tight curved piecing and small enough that the core remains in its charm shape. This shape can easily be used for a quilt block, table runner, table mat, small change purse, or scrap quilt.

quilt block

The “core” is an excellent shape to swap with your quilting friends. Let them try these curves without fear of failure when cutting! Fortunately, AccuQuilt has a great collection of videos that help show you how to achieve accurate fabric pieces like the apple core. For example, be aware of your straight of grain while cutting the shapes. In addition, it might be helpful to sew your apple core rows in opposite directions to help decrease the wavy edges or pull to the left or right.

Helpful Tip

From all the inspiration and success of using my GO! Cutter die, I have now made several apple core quilt block projects. With each project I am getting more and more proficient at piecing the curves. I love the movement the apple core creates with the fabrics.

Free Pattern

Apple Quilt to GO! Pattern

Play with colors and fabrics in this quilt made with the GO! Apple Core Die. This traditional pattern can take on a very modern look depending on the fabrics you use. The curves in this quilt are a snap to cut out with the GO! Cutters. The finished quilt is 41" X 55".

The Easy Way to Turn Triangles into Star Quilt Blocks

Make Your Triangles in Squares Into Star Quilt Blocks!

As a quilter and a busy mom, my time can be very limited. I love to design new quilts and get started cutting and sewing as soon as possible. I have found that the AccuQuilt GO! Baby® Fabric Cutter helps me to get my more time-consuming cutting done much faster. Many of the dies for the GO! Baby are a perfect solution for cutting complicated blocks faster and easier. Hexagons, Apple Cores, Circles, and Flowers are all quite time consuming to cut out by hand or with a rotary cutter. GO! Baby dies make the cutting process so much faster and more fun. AccuQuilt has dies for traditionally pieced blocks that also substantially reduce your cutting time.

One of my favorite dies is the GO!® Triangles in Square-3" Finished (55027) die. It creates a little pieced square which can become a point for a star block, a point for star sashing, or even a stand-alone triangle shape. Typically with this block, the triangles are all fussy to cut out. The large triangle is not equilateral, meaning the bottom edge is shorter than the two sides. To achieve this shape, you would need to paper piece or use templates to get the shape correct. The smaller side triangles can be cut traditionally by cutting a rectangle and then cutting it diagonally.

It Couldn't be Easier - Quilting with the Isosceles Triangle!

Jun 13, 2017 8:00:00 AM / by AccuQuilt posted in Education, GO! Product Tutorials

 The Easy-to-Cut Isosceles Triangle

 

Hello, fellow AccuQuilt friends! I am excited to share with you my favorite AccuQuilt die: the GO!® Isosceles Triangle. It is by far the most used in my collection and I have plans for many future projects with this die as well. This die cuts isosceles triangles 5" wide at the base and 6" high at the point.

The obvious reason to love using an AccuQuilt GO!® Fabric Cutter is how much time is saved – especially cutting those shapes that would require a template, specialty ruler, or would be tricky with a rotary cutter. For me, the isosceles triangle is one of those tricky shapes. I know it would take me a long time to cut multiple isosceles triangles and I also know that accuracy would be a big problem. They would all end up slightly different sizes. I love using this die because I can quickly cut multiple triangles without even thinking about geometry and they will all be identically sized.

Using a piece of fabric slightly wider than 6" x 44", typically the width of fabric, I can fold that fabric on top of itself making five layers. In one pass through the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter, I have 10 perfectly cut isosceles triangles.

Isosceles Triangle

 

I then take the remnants and carefully place them over the die shapes and roll it through the GO! Fabric Cutter again and get 4-5 more triangles. So with only two trips through the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and less than two minutes, I have 14-15 isosceles triangles depending on the actual fabric width. I now have perfect triangles and hardly any waste.

The isosceles triangle gives multiple options for blocks and quilts. The first and simplest is a one-patch quilt in the 1000 Pyramid style.

Sands of Time Hourglass Quilt Blocks Made with GO! Dies

Today, I would like to discuss the Quarter Square Triangle block. This block is more commonly called an hourglass block. The block is a great geometric shape that is used repeatedly in quilts. The quarter square triangle quilt blocks can be used in many ways. In some quilts, its use is obvious. In others, it is almost hidden as it plays a supporting role in the background or as part of the larger quilt blocks.

Create a Beautiful Trapunto Quilt

Feb 22, 2017 2:24:13 PM / by Marjorie Busby posted in GO! Project Tutorials

0 Comments

Trapunto is a traditional type of quilting. This technique adds extra dimension to appliqued and quilted shapes and is most often used on whole cloth and applique quilts. I love the look of trapunto, especially with machine embroidery and will share with you a method I have developed for adding that extra dimension to machine embroidered blocks. The wonderful part of this is that the AccuQuilt GO! Cutter makes this easier than ever to do.Trapunto QuiltIt is done by basting the quilt design on the quilt top attached to a layer of quilt batting on the back. The excess batting that is not a part of the design is then trimmed away from the design. When the top is prepped, it is layered over another layer of quilt batting and the backing. The top is then quilted and the extra batting under the design creates added dimension to the shapes.

Candy Hearts Machine Embroidery for Your Valentine

Jan 29, 2017 12:00:00 AM / by Marjorie Busby posted in GO! Project Tutorials

0 Comments

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it is always tough to come up with new ideas for a special Valentine for the grand children. In my case, there are nine grand children under the age of ten. A couple of years ago, I created an embroidery set of candy hearts using the AccuQuilt GO! 2-3-4-inch Heart die. These hearts have served me well and have been stitched on quilt blocks and wall hangings as well as using them on mug rugs and zipper pouches. And this year, I came up with another idea—adding candy hearts to the tummy of a little stuffed bear.

Hi, fellow GO! Getters! It's Gina from Gem Hill Quilts. A few weeks ago, I came home from a trip to find some unexpected AccuQuilt boxes waiting for me. I felt like a little kid opening my presents on Christmas morning! In those boxes were the GO! Cutting Mats, Rulers and Rotary Cutter! First, the GO! Rotary Cutter is super-light and fit very comfortably in my small hand. The rulers have clearly defined vertical lines which really help when making those quick rough cuts of fabric to use in the GO! Fabric Cutters. The GO! Cutting Mats are sturdy, extra-thick and double-sided with the grid and the numbers on both sides. So cool! Thank you, AccuQuilt!

My beloved late grandmother is and always will be the best cook I've ever known. Mama (although my grandmother, I called her Mama) made nearly everything from scratch. She loved making a variety of desserts with apples, but her homemade apple jelly was my favorite. It is by far the best jelly I’ve ever tasted, and to this day I can barely eat any store bought jelly without frowning at it. In fact, I rarely eat jelly at all anymore because I miss her infamous apple jelly so much.

Spaghetti Pie Recipe

My mom used to make spaghetti pie periodically throughout the years, and I've always loved it. When I started making it for myself, I altered the recipe quite a bit in an effort to accommodate my own taste buds better. For instance, I like a lot of garlic, and I especially love parmesan cheese, so I add a healthy amount of both directly to the pasta, the crust of the pie. To be perfectly honest, I actually use more garlic than I list below, so feel free to add more if you aren't afraid of it! Just be prepared for some alone time after you eat this pie.

Hi, It’s Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com to tell you about a fun wall hanging that I made. First, you have to know that this was a complete experiment.

Several times a day the wall hangings were changed with a greeting suitable for the time of day.

The battery-powered task light I had was OK (and better than nothing!), but it kept flickering off and on. It reminded me of this story my mother told:

Free Pattern for Halloween

Halloween is around the corner and it is time to break out the Spooky Décor. We are also so excited to share my husband, Matthew’s newest fabric collection, Booooville from Benartex. The collection features a panel with Gnarly the tree getting ready to go trick or treating with his ghost friends. So this month I used my GO! Qube Mix & Match 6” Block Set and my new GO! Qube 6” Companion set to create a sweet and spooky wall hanging using part of the panel for the center and the corners. I used all the new dies from the Companion set to create whimsical borders to go around the tree. This left eight extra ghost panels, so I used an assortment of dies and fabrics to create a matching set of four placemats.

How to Clean GO! Dies

Sep 28, 2016 11:08:04 AM / by AccuQuilt posted in GO! Product Tutorials, Uncategorized

0 Comments

Quilters often joke about being identifiable by the threads that are often (always) dangling off of their clothing. Did you know the same thing can happen to your cutting dies? Over time, threads can become embedded in the grooves of the GO! Dies. When this happens you may start to notice that your die is not cutting as cleanly as it once was, it may start skipping over sections, or you may not be able to cut as many  layers of fabric at once.

How to Make a Real Barn Quilt

Sep 26, 2016 10:00:00 AM / by Andi Reynolds posted in Uncategorized

In 2007 I was lucky to be part of the fledgling Washington County, Iowa, barn quilt effort. Following what other communities had done since the first barn quilts were created in 2001 in Ohio (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quilt_trail), about a dozen citizens gathered to discuss how to decorate the many barns in this very agricultural part of the world with quilts. Several years later, the project received a gubernatorial commendation and Washington County became known as “The Barn Quilt Capital of Iowa” for having more quilts on barns than any other county (well over 100). This is my recollection of what our committee did and how my husband and I made our own barn quilt.
