For the ninth month of the year, we’re celebrating with two new Block on Board (BOB) dies that finish at 9”: the GO! Star of the East and GO! Road to Fortune Dies! These BOBs are perfect for adding some flair and a dash of luck to your quilting projects.
On the Road To Quilting in the Right Direction
The eight geometric shapes on each respective die board can safely, quickly, easily and accurately be cut every time in a single pass through any GO! Fabric Cutter, including the Studio 2 with the appropriate adapter. You never have to worry about Y-seams or foundation paper piecing with these BOB dies, making both perfect for quilters of all skill levels. When you realize how these BOBs also utilize the AccuQuilt system, the patterns below practically make themselves!
