Cutting for my FREE AccuQuilt Pattern

Posted on March 04 2022

Using my AccuQuilt GO! in my projects has saved me so much time not only in cutting, but the trimming that often comes after you stitch and press pieces. The You’re a Star pattern is a fun twist on the sawtooth star block we all know and love. It’s perfect to make scrappy or with a plan and it’s FREE!

Watch It On YouTube

I’ve also created a video taking you through the process of cutting with each die. If you’re new to your AccuQuilt or considering getting one, this is a great video to watch for a better understanding of how the cutter works with multiple dies!

Cutting Tips

I have two tips when it comes to cutting that I have found really helps keep things clean and the cuts crisp. 

  1. Make sure to keep your dies clean. If you see threads or small bits of fabric stuck, carefully get this out with the provided or a set of tweezers. 
  2. When taking your mat off, instead of picking it straight up, slide it off with a bit of pressure. My process really changed when I started doing this and it cut everything much cleaner!
