Are you looking for some last-minute gift inspiration? Well, whether you’re looking for yourself, for a fellow quilter or gifts to make, AccuQuilt is introducing three new dies that are sure to inspire! There’s something for everyone in this die release – a Block on Board, a project die and an appliqué die. So, grab a cup of hot cocoa and let’s take a look at these fun new dies.
Featured Pattern: GO! Arkansas Traveler Wall Hanging Pattern (PQ11649)
Back by popular demand, we’re excited to welcome the GO! Arkansas Traveler-12" Finished (55558) Block on Board die back as a full-time member of the AccuQuilt team. This fantastic die was first introduced as an event exclusive, and was retired to the vault earlier this year. This BOB is fat-quarter friendly, works in all GO! cutters and makes cutting diamonds a snap. Specialized dog ears make sewing this block simple as well. New patterns have been released as part of the warm welcome back for this outstanding die!
GO! Pincushion (55209)
Featured Pattern: GO! Pocket Pincushion (PQ11784)
Quilters and sewists alike know that pincushions serve an important purpose and are necessary tools of the trade. They’re also fun to personalize, collect and share with others. Pincushions can be cut in minutes and sewn together quickly and easily with this new Project Die. Creative options abound with the two sewing-themed appliqué shapes included on the die as well – a spool and a sewing machine! There’s even free, downloadable embroidery available to make using them on pincushions (and a host of other projects) a piece of cake.
Once sewn together, these little 3” x 2” x 3” cuties are ready to stuff with the filling of your choice – like crushed walnut shells, rice, sand, batting or fabric scraps and more.
GO! Gnome (55210)
Featured Pattern: Gnome Sweet Gnome (PQ11770)
Here’s a die that’s a must-have for every die collection making it simple for you to cut these complicated, yet adorable, little gnomes. In minutes you can have these cuties cut out and ready to add a touch of whimsey quilts and garden or holiday themed projects.
This die is a great use for scraps and is charm square friendly as well. Think about all the creative options when you pull in other fabrics like felt, flannel and wool. How about some faux fur for beards, like Monkey Shag Fur from Shannon Fabrics? Your gnome will be ready for the holidays in no time with free, downloadable embroidery available for you in 3 different stitches – satin, blanket and a motif.
So, are you ready for even more inspiration? AccuQuilt has also released a host of brand new patterns to highlight these amazing dies! These patterns have all been added to GO! Quilt, AccuQuilt’s digital quilt design tool so you can design a project that is truly unique.
