Cutting precise fabric patches for piecing or applique is easy with AccuQuilt's GO! or GO! Baby Fabric Cutters. With the right dies and a turn of the handle, you can cut up to 900/0 faster. Both models are simple to set up and use, but which fabric cutter is right for you?
The GO! Baby is the perfect choice if you cut a lot of patches small in scale. This compact model takes up very little space for storage and weighs in at 8 lbs.--ideal for toting to classes or retreats. All mats and dies for the GO! Baby are sold separately.
The GO! Fabric Cutter is also portable at 15 lbs. When folded for storage, it takes a tad more space than the GO! Baby. More dies and larger patch sizes work with this model. The GO! comes with a 2" and a 4" finished square die, a 2" finished half-square die plus a mat to get you started.
AccuQuilt has a vast array of die shapes and sizes. For star lovers, you'll find dies for Hunter Stars, Blazing Stars and triangles galore. Applique enthusiasts will also find a nice selection, including the 5-point star pack with stars in 3 sizes.
