(OMAHA, NE) August 13, 2019– AccuQuilt, a U.S. based company that specializes in manufacturing fabric cutting machines and dies, announced the release of their four new Blocks on Board® (BOB) dies for their GO!® Fabric Cutters. Each die includes all the shapes needed to create an entire block pattern in one pass through the cutter.
“This die release includes something for everyone, from beginner to advanced, and for quilters who like 8”, 9”, 10” or 12” finished blocks. There’s such a great selection of new BOB dies that it’s the perfect opportunity for quilters to add new dies to their library,” said Lynn Gibney, Director of Product Development at AccuQuilt.
BOB dies are about ease of use. Save even more time when creating a quilt top and other projects. It’s perfect for beginners who might be intimidated by the cutting process. For the more advanced quilter, BOBs open up a whole new world of possibilities.
The GO! Storm at Sea-12” Finished (55221) is designed to cut one repeating three-color, 12” block with one pass through a GO! or GO! Big cutter. The die board features eight basic shapes including the highly-requested 60-degree Diamond in a Rectangle for sashing. The Storm at Sea block is popular with many quilters, works perfectly alongside the GO! Mix & Match 12” Qube and is easily accented by the appliqué shapes found on the GO! Summer Medley released in June 2019 and the Limited Edition GO! Sea Life Medley released in May 2019.
The GO! Chimney Sweep-10” Finished (55222) cuts one two-color, 10” block in one pass through a GO! Me, GO! or GO! Big cutter. With five basic shapes, this die is perfect for beginners ready for their next challenge. The Mix & Match 10” Qube will provide even more possibilities for this new block.
The GO! Hattie’s Choice-8” Finished (55220) cuts one three-color, 8” block in one pass through a GO! Me, GO! or GO! Big cutter. The board includes three basic shapes that are difficult to cut by hand. The 8” finished size of the block means it is compatible with the Mix & Match 8” Qube.
The GO! Glorified Nine Patch-9” Finished (55557) cuts one three-color, 9” block with one pass through a GO! Me, GO! or GO! Big. There are four shapes on the board, including a challenging curve that’s difficult to cut by hand. AccuQuilt adds matching notches on all curved pieces to simplify piecing and sewing, which makes it the perfect choice for a quilter who is ready to take on curves.
All newly-released BOB® dies are fat quarter-friendly and include screen printed letters on each shape to make piecing, organization and construction easy. And 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 addition, there are free instructions for block assembly available and patterns to get you started. And quilters with Electric Quilt® software can use it to create their own designs from their block library.
These dies will be available online and through AccuQuilt’s retailers who are also happy to demonstrate each AccuQuilt fabric cutting system. For more information on AccuQuilt and the latest product releases, visit accuquilt.com or https://learn.accuquilt.com/august-die-release.
