The August Block Stars are here! Meet AccuQuilt’s three new Block on Board® dies – the GO! Snail’s Trail-8” Finished (55196), the GO! Maple Leaf-8” Finished (55195) and the GO! Starry Path-9” Finished (55197). Buy yours now or read on to learn more!


Let’s take an up-close look at each of these fun, new dies and get to know them better.


GO! Snail’s Trail-8” Finished (55196)

AUG-Die Release-LP-SnailsTrail


You asked, and we listened! Unlike our original GO! Big Snail’s Trail-12” Finished Block on Board, this smaller version is on a 10” x 10” die board and will work with either the GO! or the GO! Big, and was one of our top customer requests. This die is a perfect use for 10” layer cake squares and partners perfectly with blocks made with our popular GO! Qube Mix & Match 8" Block (55776) as well.


Making this block couldn’t be easier since we’ve screen printed the letters on the die for better organization, plus you can cut three complete 2-color blocks in just one pass through the cutter! You can download step-by-step sewing instructions along with the free pattern for our GO! Raspberry Swirl Wall Hanging (PQ11734).


GO! Maple Leaf-8” Finished (55195)

AUG-Die Release-LP-MapleLeaf


Next up, meet fall’s best friend, the GO! Maple Leaf-8” Finished BOB. This die is perfect for any skill level and is designed to cut out one 2-color bock in one pass through your cutter. This screen-printed die is on a 6” x 24” die board, so it will work with any GO! cutter, including the GO! Me. While it uses basic shapes, the measurements are different than any other GO! dies.


This die is charm square-friendly but also a great way to use scraps. The packaging features step-by-step sewing instructions, and you can download the free pattern for our GO! Maple Leaf Table Runner (PQ11732).


GO! Starry Path-9” Finished (55197)

AUG-Die Release-LP-StarryPath


Sewing the complicated looking Starry Path block with picture perfect points is a snap with this new BOB die! Specialized dog ears are the secret along with screen printed letters for easier piecing and organization. This die is 6” x 24”, so it is compatible with any GO! cutter, including the GO! Me.


The packaging includes detailed sewing instructions, and you can cut one 3-color block in one pass through your cutter, but you can also create a stunning 5-color block! You can download the pattern for our GO! Starry Night Wall Hanging (PQ11735).


Be sure to check our videos featuring step-by-step directions with Pam and Erica for these featured patterns. All three new BOB dies are available now here on our site or from your local AccuQuilt Retailer.
