AccuQuilt GO! Fabric-Cutting Dies
As a sister company of AccuQuilt, Custom Shape Pros is the only approved source for custom AccuQuilt GO! fabric-cutting dies. We can create dies based on your own designs or resize a current AccuQuilt GO! or Studio die (some exclusions apply).
Your custom GO! die with be hand-crafted using your design. Steel rule made especially for cutting fabric is cut, bent and placed in an AccuQuilt GO! board and green plastic tray.
Materials You Can Cut with a GO! Die
You can cut all types of fabrics including cotton, batik, flannel, fleece, wool and denim.
Using a GO! die in an AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter, you can cut up to six layers of 100% cotton fabric at a time. The number of layers you are able to cut with other types of fabric depends on the thickness and density of the fabric plus the intricacy of the die design. AccuQuilt recommends always starting with fewer layers and build up.
You can cut other materials such as fusible web and small amounts of paper with AccuQuilt dies. Keep this practice to a minimum and treat your dies like you would your fabric-cutting scissors.
"I make quilts and I was having trouble with inaccurate measuring and cutting large triangles. This led to miss-matched points. I also spent a lot of time trimming corners that slowed down my sewing.
With a custom die now the triangles are perfectly cut and my quilts are much more precise. And the added bonus is no trimming corners because I was able to design my own die to eliminate the tips of the triangles."
Louise Harris, Lander Quilts

Frequently Asked Questions
Will my custom GO! dies have two-tone foam?
We are able to provide two-tone foam for GO! strip cutter dies only upon request.
Are you able to provide embroidery files with a custom GO! die?
We are not able to provide embroidery files.
Can I order multiples of my custom GO! die and sell them in my store or online?
No. AccuQuilt allows Custom Shape Pros to make individual custom dies for personal or business use. They do not allow resale of custom dies.
Why are the shapes on the fabric cutting dies angled?
For ease of cutting, the shapes on the dies are angled slightly (5 degrees) to keep the blades from running parallel through the roller. In addition to improving cutting performance, this also minimizes the fraying on the edges of the fabric.
Do I line my fabric to the die board or the blade?
AccuQuilt suggests that you line your fabric according to the shape on the fabric cutting die board, not the die board itself. If the blades on the dies are at an angle you should angle your fabric and just cover the blades. This will ensure the fabric grain is aligned with the shapes’ edges and helps to minimize fabric waste.
Do i get a go! mat when i
order a go! custom die?
A GO! mat is not included with your custom die. You may purchase the coordinating mats from Custom Shape Pros, AccuQuilt or an AccuQuilt retailer.
