It’s time to introduce a little something new to the AccuQuilt family – meet the GO! Mix & Match 4” Block (55229) along with the GO! Qube 4” Companion Set-Corners (55230) and GO! Qube 4” Companion Set-Angles (55231).
The newest – and smallest – members of the Qube collection are ready to make a big impact on your quilting life! These small shapes are perfect for fans of mini quilts, but there’s just so much more that you can do with them!
What’s A Qube?
If you aren’t familiar with AccuQuilt’s GO! Qube system, Qubes are innovative storage boxes that hold 8 dies, a cutting mat and patterns. Each die has a different, basic quilting shape. Together, those 8 shapes will create over 72 different quilt blocks. The same 8 shapes live inside each and every GO! Qube Mix & Match Block, but the sizes vary by the finished block size. The GO! Qube now comes in 6 different finished block sizes, 4”, 6”, 8”, 9”, 10” and 12”.
The GO! Qube Companion Set-Angles and GO! Qube Companion Set-Corners each bring an additional 4 dies and shapes to your life, each adding an additional 72 possible blocks, but the possibilities really are endless!

Small Size – Big Possibilities
The new smaller sized shapes open so many creative possibilities for quilters! If you’ve ever been intimidated by the thought of cutting and sewing small shapes, this new 4” size is perfect for you. You’ll be cutting 1” and 2” finished squares and triangles with ease. Just like their bigger Qube “siblings”, these adorable little shapes have the same dog-eared corners and will give you the same exact cuts every time. Got scraps? These dies are wonderful for putting even the smallest bits of fabric to great use. Think about your favorite quilt blocks and using these dies…how about a 3” finished Shoo Fly block with shapes 2 and 5? What about 2” finished pinwheel blocks made with Shape 5, or even a 1” finished pinwheel block made with Shape 12.1 from the GO! Qube 4” Companion Set-Corners.
All New Patterns
Here’s a look into some of the exciting new patterns designed for this fun sized set! Don’t forget that the pieces inside each GO! Mix & Match Qube and Companion Set are numbered the same, which allows you to make these patterns with any size Qube, just with different fabric requirements and finished sizes. These patterns are all available on AccuQuilt.com as free downloads.
