Custom Designed Quilts with GO! Quilt

Hi, this is Mona Phelps from Kentucky Whittaker Creations. I’m pleased to share with you something new and exciting at AccuQuilt!

Have you ever seen a quilt pattern that you love but wonder what it would look like in different colors? I do all the time. I’m never quite sure if what I end up choosing will look right and the result is the project ends up not getting made because I don’t want to take a chance.

AccuQuilt has created something to help with this - GO! Quilt. This new quilt pattern customization product allows you to choose your project (quilts, home decor, and more), then make it your own.

I wanted to see how easy it would be to design something. First, I logged into my AccuQuilt account (it’s easy to set one up if you don’t have one). After logging in, there are many options to choose from: difficulty level, technique, type of fabric cutter, and type of project. There is also a search option.

 

I narrowed the selection by choosing my fabric cutter (AccuQuilt's GO! Big), then I selected the pattern Charm-Squares to GO! Lap Quilt. I clicked on “customize”, then got to make it my own. I decided I wanted to upload some of my fabric stash. If you don’t have any pictures available, you can pick from hundreds of colors or some of the pre-loaded manufacturer fabrics.

It was very easy to place my color/fabric choices. When I was finally satisfied with my choices, I saved the file in my GO! Quilt account - that way I can access it whenever I want. The accompanying pattern was available to print immediately or at a later date. I knew exactly how much fabric I would need, which dies would be needed, and exactly how to cut the fabric.

 

I love that AccuQuilt has come up with this option. Using this tool will allow you to better utilize your current dies - and maybe help you realize when it's time to invest in a new one! The interface is very user-friendly and there are many options available. New patterns are being added all the time. Make sure you check back often to see what inspires you!

 

Ready to start designing a quilt pattern? GO! Quilt just got an update and now comes preloaded with fabric from your favorite designers. Check out some of the featured fabric collections and organize your stash!
