Dec 15, 2017 12:00:00 AM / by Connie Campbell

Have you seen the new GO! Qube Companion Set-Angles dies? I couldn't wait to open the dies! I had fun using the 9 inch GO! Qube Companion Angles set to make this fast and easy Christmas Star Centerpiece. Working with angle blocks has never been easier as all of your pieces are dog-eared and cutting is so accurate!

Hi everyone, this is Connie Kresin Campbell from Freemotion by the River and I have another easy tutorial for you.

Angles Christmas Star Centerpiece Tutorial

There are 4 dies in the GO! Qube Angles Companion set:

I have always used the shapes included in this set in many of the quilts I make and it is so great to be able to use the AccuQuilt dies now.
