GO! Rising Star Die

The Rising Star is a classic quilt block, and like any classic quilt block, it has been known by several different names over decades - including Star and Squares. The name Rising Star has been applied to different quilt blocks as well!

It’s an incredibly versatile block that can work well in so many “quilt settings” and is great for playing with colorway and fabric placement to create different looks. It can be a great scrap buster, too, and we all need that, right?

AccuQuilt’s GO! Rising Star die finishes to 10”, making it a great “buddy” to work with the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10” Finished and Companions. It also works great with the GO! Setting Triangles-10” Finished as well.

Check out some great patterns for this die. They are all available as free downloads at!

GO! Tangled Star Die

The Tangled Star is another old star block, though it appears that its roots are not as deep as many other star blocks, such as the Rising Star. In fact, it feels very modern with its twisted design.

Tangled Star blocks are often created using foundation paper piecing. This is done to create multiple perfect points, but you no longer have to hassle with that! With AccuQuit’s new die, you can get those same perfect points quickly and easily.

Check out these fun, new patterns, all available as free downloads at AccuQuilt.
