GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die



OMAHA, Neb. – May 10, 2022 – Today, AccuQuilt, a U.S.-based company, announced that the popular GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die is now joining their permanent die collection. This cheery applique die offers a time-saving solution to cutting bird and birdhouse shapes by hand. It is available online at AccuQuilt as well as at local retailers.


The GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die works in any GO! Fabric Cutter, including the Studio with an appropriate adapter. The die board includes eight applique shapes: birdhouse, roof, base, perch, window, bird, wing, and eye/circle. These shapes can also be repurposed into different designs - such as using the wing shape to create a baby bird. 


“We were overwhelmed by how much quilters loved this die when it was originally launched as the April online exclusive die,” said Lynn Gibney, Chief Brand and Product Officer. “When you have such a positive response to a die that can use a wide variety of fabrics, it only makes sense to listen to your customers and make it available to them permanently.”



GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die Fabric Example



The GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die:

  • Safely, quickly, and accurately cuts up to four layers of pre-fused fabric.
  • Is Fat Quarter friendly.
  • Includes shapes that fit into standard embroidery hoop sizes.
  • Comes with access to free downloadable embroidery patterns valued at $22.


"This fun die is perfect for scrap-busting," said Gibney. "Quilters who are primarily piecers will have an enjoyable time working with this die while having the opportunity to try out applique and embroidery. This helps these individuals potentially find another aspect of quilting that they like and gives applique and embroidery quilters a great new look to add to their projects."  


The GO! Bird & Birdhouse Die comes with free downloadable quilt patterns valued at $29, including three new quilt patterns that are exclusive to this release (pictured below). Moreover, joining the AccuQuilt Livestream Events will give quilters the chance to see expert tips, tricks, and tutorials so they can cut time and quilt more.
