AccuQuilt GO! Cutter Used Exclusively for Cover Quilt of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine
The GO! Winding Ways Die from AccuQuilt takes the cover with a classic charm.
The Better Homes and Gardens special interest publication “American Patchwork & Quilting®” magazine is the premier quilting publication in the industry and is a go-to magazine for quilters and fabric crafters.
The cover of the February 2013 issue will feature the Way Around Quilt, showcasing its timeless design and masterfully rendered Winding Ways pattern. It is the first cover quilt to be featured that is completely cut with a fabric cutter (vs. traditional cutting methods like a rotary cutter or scissors).
“We at AccuQuilt are very excited to see an “American Patchwork & Quilting®” cover with a quilt cut entirely from our GO! Cutter, especially on such a prestigious industry magazine,” said Lynn Gibney, AccuQuilt director of marketing. “It inspires us as a company and we hope it inspires readers who may be wondering what our cutters can do for them as well.”
The magazine takes readers through the assembly process of the Winding Ways Quilt and showcases the use of the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter and the Winding Ways die as a way to eliminate templates and make cutting simple and easy. The article offers tips and instruction for making this quilt including cutting, pinning curve tips, color and fabric options, and assembly.
The issue goes on sale Dec. 6, 2012 and will be available in quilt shops, retail stores and book stores across the country.
AccuQuilt GO!® dies—including the Winding Ways die (55069)—the GO! Baby® Fabric Cutter and GO!® Fabric Cutter, are available at local quilt and fabric retailers. Quilters also can purchase GO! fabric cutters and dies, along with the Studio™ Fabric Cutter, GO! die adapters and hundreds of Studio™ quilting dies, by visiting www.accuquilt.com or calling 888.258.7913.
