OMAHA, Neb. – September 14, 2021 – AccuQuilt, a U.S.-based company that specializes in manufacturing fabric cutting machines and dies, announced the release of two new products – the GO! Weathervane and GO! Feather Star Block on Board® Dies. Quilters can now add the GO! Weathervane or GO! Feather Star to their collection by purchasing them from the AccuQuilt website or through their local AccuQuilt Retailer.

These new Block on Board® dies allow quilters to cut two different traditional quilt blocks in just seconds with one pass through an AccuQuilt fabric cutter. This saves them time so they can quilt more. The GO! Weathervane Block on Board® Die will cut one 4-color block in one pass through the fabric cutter and the GO! Feather Star will cut one 3-color block.

AccuQuilt’s Chief Brand and Product Officer, Lynn Gibney, said that the quilt blocks these two dies help cut have been in high demand from quilters. They were requested so much from the AccuQuilt community that the company decided to make them permanent additions to their collection.

“Our quilter’s requests are exceptionally important to us,” said Gibney. “It is our mission to make quilting faster, and more accessible, to quilters around the world.”

 

The Feather Star block was a popular display quilt in the late 1800’s. This is likely the case because of the 21 intricately placed triangles in the block. These triangles required accurate measurements to prevent any distortion, so this time-consuming block created treasured quilts.

 

Quilters will quickly and easily get perfectly sized pieces every single time using the GO! Feather Star Die - making this traditionally challenging quilt block accessible to everyone. Makers will simply cut their fabric using the die and start piecing. Gibney said that quilters will be delighted when they quickly discover that they have created their own display quilt to hang proudly on the wall.
