"We always carefully listen to AccuQuilt customers before we decide what will be in our new die collections, but the Tried and True collection takes it one step further," said AccuQuilt National Sales Manager, Linda Pumphrey. "We regularly test new dies on our website only to see how they will be received. Many of the designs in this collection were whole-heartedly approved by our test audience."
The new dies include top-selling 2 1/2" and 4 1/2" squares and half-square 2" finished triangles in multiples, plus common shapes that make great additions to any quilting die collection: 8" Square, Signature Block and 5 1/2" Strip Cutter. Several appliqué dies add interest to any quilt: Carefree Alphabet Set, Carefree Numbers, Ribbon Twist and Rick Rack. The dies are the first AccuQuilt dies to feature the new two-tone foam die board style that makes it easier to place fabric only over the shape you want to cut, which minimizes fabric waste.

Tried & True quilting dies will be available exclusively at independent quilt retailers for one year from their release in September 2011. Quilters also can purchase GO! fabric cutters and dies, along with the Studio™ Fabric Cutter and hundreds of Studio™ quilting dies, by visiting accuquilt.com or calling 888.258.7913.
