Meet BOB, the One Die Wonder
BOB is the super hero of the quilting world! On each board is every shape you need to make one of your favorite quilt blocks, and in just one pass through a cutter. BOB may not be a bird or plane, but everything about this super hero is amazing.
All newly-released BOB dies are fat quarter-friendly and include screen printed letters on each shape to make piecing, organization and construction easy. As with all AccuQuilt dies, there are specialized dog ears that eliminate the need for trimming and ¼” seam allowance for easy alignment and piecing. Each die is compatible with the AccuQuilt Studio cutter with a die adapter. In each package, there is instructions for block assembly and a free pattern to get you started. Also, quilters with Electric Quilt® software can use it to create their own designs from their block library

The Storm at Sea is one of those blocks that so many quilters want to make, but hesitate to take on. With the GO! Storm at Sea-12" Finished (55221), it's easier than ever to cut those shapes, construct and sew. The die board features eight basic shapes including the highly-requested 60-degree Diamond in a Rectangle for sashing, and is designed to cut one repeating three-color, 12" block with one pass through a GO!, GO! Big or Studio (with appropriate adapter).
Better yet, it works perfectly alongside the GO! Mix & Match 12” Qube (55778) and will look amazing with one of the appliqué shapes from the GO! Summer Medley (55496) or the Limited Edition GO! Sea Life Medley (55190). Included with each die is the GO! Tornado Storm at Sea Throw Quilt Pattern (PQ11635)!
The GO! Hattie's Choice-8" Finished (55220) not only cuts one three-color, 8" block in one pass, it also works with the GO! Baby, GO! Me, GO!, GO! Big and Studio (with appropriate adapter). Included with the die is the GO! Hattie's Choice Pillow Pattern (PQ11631), and the finish size of the block means that it work well with the GO! Mix & Match 8" Qube (55776). That means endless pattern possibilities!
Beginners who are ready to take on the next challenge will love the GO! Chimney Sweep-10" Finished (55222). This die can cut one two-color, 10" block in one pass through a GO! Baby, GO! Me, GO!, GO! Big or Studio (with appropriate adapter) and includes five basic shapes. The GO! Mix & Match 10" Qube (55797) can add more potential block designs to your pattern, but if you want something to get you started, the GO! Chimney Sweep Table Runner Pattern (PQ11628) is included with every die.
For the more experienced quilter who is ready to take on the challenge of curves, we've got the GO! Glorified Nine Patch-9" Finished (55557). With its graceful inverted curve, this block is usually difficult to cut and sew, but the AccuQuilt die simplifies cutting and adds notches so that lining up the curved pieces is easy, too. The die works great with the GO! Mix & Match 9" Qube (55777) and is compatible with the GO! Baby, GO! Me, GO!, GO! Big and Studio (with appropriate adapter) and includes the GO! Dart Around Glorified Nine Patch Throw Quilt Pattern (PQ11643).
