Eleanor Burns is back again with tips about her own incredible and fun die design: GO! Eagle by Eleanor Burns. Eleanor loves this design so much, because it's so patriotic. And since Eleanor was born on July 3, she likes to think of 4th of July as a celebration for herself, too. She always dresses in red, white, and blue on her birthday as well. Eleanor's parents used to tell her she was an early firecracker that popped too soon! We would agree that she is indeed a firecracker with a wonderfully explosive personality!
If you have been an AccuQuilt customer for a long time, then you already know that our dies haven't always been made with two-tone foam. This innovative invention makes it so much easier to see which shapes you want to cut.
The first BOB (Block-on-Board) die Eleanor Burns "met" was the GO! Hunter Star. Now that she's been making her way around these blocks for some time, she's a BOB die professional. Eleanor enjoys getting all the shapes she needs for one block in record time. She understands how difficult and intricate the pieces are to cut with a rotary cutter and she wants no part of it.
Eleanor Burns is back again, only this time to share tips about her own design, the GO! Blazing Star-12" Finished die. Eleanor says this is the kind of block in which you really need to have a GO! Fabric Cutter. It's another Block-on-Board (BOB) die that gives you all the shapes you need for one block, so you only have to pass it through the cutter once to get the entire block.
