Mar 15, 2022 2:00:00 PM / by Erica Bottger

Grab a cutter and do-si-so! AccuQuilt is here to make your day with the introduction of FOUR new square dies quilters have been clamoring for:

 

These new dies are certainly something to dance about!

4 Square Dies

Perfect Squares for Perfect Quilts

These new squares will not only release new creative possibilities for quilters with these quick and accurate squares, but they make the perfect partner for some of your favorite blocks.

So, what’s so exciting about them?

 

  • The bigger the square, the harder it is to cut accurately by hand
  • They match up with Qube blocks
  • They match up with Block on Board, or BOB, blocks
  • You can use them as setting squares to set blocks on point
  • Of course, the bigger the block, the quicker the quilt!
  • Plus, there's more space for applique designs

 

You may already have some creative ideas churning in your quilting brain, but here are some of the new, free downloadable patterns that use these exciting new dies.

Time to GO! Big!

Big squares call for big dies – GO! Big dies, that is! The new dies - cutting 9 1/2” and 10 1/2” squares - will only work with the GO! Big Fabric Cutter (or a Studio Cutter with the appropriate adaptor) and laying out your fabric correctly was never more important!

When using these dies, be sure to lay your fabric on the die so the lengthwise grain of the fabric is lined up at the same angle as the lengthwise blades as it goes through the cutter! Be sure that you also have a GO! Big Cutting Mat-14” x 16” handy!
