AccuQuilt Theme Blog Hop - Tips, Tutorials, Videos and Giveaway(s)

I'm participating in a Blog Hop this week where ten Bloggers with AccuQuilt products will share their insights and inspiration on AccuQuilt products.  Each participant has been asked to share insights, on their designated day.  You'll find some may share beautiful quilts that they've made with their AccuQuilt products, whereas some may share tips, tutorials, videos or even host a giveaway....but all the bloggers will have a common theme in that this Blog Hop is about AccuQuilt!    This event is something we all wanted to do, and is not a sponsored Blog Hop by AccuQuilt.

I wanted to share insights on the Tumbler Die, a tip for fussy cutting with an AccuQuilt, and a giveaway I hope you will want to enter to win!

The Tumbler die (#55020) for the AccuQuilt GO  cuts a 6 1/2"x 6 1/2" tumbler that finishes to a 6" tumbler block.  There are a variety of designs you can create with this die, from using the Tumblers in a row quilt, in borders, etc ..  I wanted to make a scrappy Halloween theme charity quilt, for a little kid. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
   




I like to mark my dies using a silver Sharpie permanent marker as it helps me identify placement of fabric on the die, to minimize waste.  I also like the "silver" Sharpie better than any other color, as it shows up better in pictures.  I've also started drawing lines 1/4" from the blades, to help with fabric placement.  These lines are used when I cut strips of fabric, or fan fold my fabric on top of the die.  As this die creates a 6 1/2"x 6 1/2" cut I'm willing to have scrap that is no more than 1/4" inch on each side, but I typically end up with ~1/8" inch scrap.  My trick is I precut strips the WOF at a 6 3/4" or, if I'm lazy or really don't care, I'll cut a 7" strip which leaves a 1/4" on each side of the blades of this die.
 
I layered six different scrap fabrics and cut my 7" strips and laid this stack on top of the die, with one end of the strip laying off one side.  You simply place the mat on top and roll the die thru the GO!  As you can see I end up with minimal scrap waste.
 
 














I also flipped my strip of fabric with each cut, where RSOF was up or down, depending on the angle of the cut vs the die, to minimize scrap.
















It is difficult to see where your fabric will be cut, when you place your fabric on top of the die.  But here is a way to fussy cut with an AccuQuilt. First, I get a sheet of freezer paper that will completely cover the die.  I trace the outside of my die and cut a piece that perfect covers my die.  I then add that freezer paper to the top of my die, cover it with a mat, and use my GO! to cut the paper.   I can then place that freezer paper over the fabric that I want to fussy cut.  You may even want to iron it down, but I'm comfortable just holding it to where I want it and treat it like a viewing window. 

I lay my fabric on top of the die, place the cut freezer paper on top and line up the corners of the freezer paper with the corners of the die, being sure the cut freezer paper design is in the same layout as the die blades (e..g wide part of the tumbler die needs to be on the same side as the wide part of the paper).
















If the freezer paper viewing window doesn't show the fabric I want to fussy cut, I wiggle the fabric underneath till I get the fabric to line up the way I want.  Once I have the fabric positioned correctly I remove the freezer paper and set it aside.  Then I place the mat on top of the fabric and slide everything thru my GO!




















And I end up with an easy way to fussy cut fabric with an AccuQuilt.  I can also do this cutting multiple layers, each fussy cut, but I'll save those tips for another day, as this is a long post today {sorry}.


GIVEAWAY:
I wanted to add a giveaway to this Blog Hop to make it more fun.  I do hope you like this prize, and that it will also give some lucky winner a way to play with accurately cut fabrics cut with the GO!

The prize is 150 AccuQuilt cut tumbler blocks, using scrappy Halloween fabrics.  This is more than needed to make a 48"x78" quilt top  using this free pattern from AccuQuilt.

2) If you are on the Team of Bloggers with AccuQuilt products (your site should be listed on the right hand column of my blog), you can leave a comment showing you are part of this team, for an extra entry.  Not part of this team, but want to join ?  Check out the page on this blog with the tab "Bloggers with AccuQuilt Products".  You can sign up, but you won't be eligible for the extra point in this giveaway {sorry, they'll be other times}.

4) Be a follower of SewCalGal and leave a comment, for an extra entry.

5) Be a follower of all the blogs participanting in this Blog Hop, and leave a comment, for an extra entry.
 
That gives you five ways to get an entry.  You can win with just one entry, but six definitely gives you better odds.  Good luck!
 
I'll randomly select a winner on October 3rd.
 
Now, I hope you'll GO! have fun visiting all the blogs that are participating in this Blog Hop.  Stay tuned, as on the last day of this Blog Hop., Friday, October lst, AccuQuilt will be sharing insights on their new Bundle of Joy and many of the Bloggers will AccuQuilt products will also be helping to spread the good news too.

Great Tutorial! Thanks!

Greg said...

I'll second the Silver Sharpie. It makes marking the die much easier to see. I've also toyed with the idea of drawing reference lines to aid in fabric placement.

Karen said...

These are great tips for using the tumbler die. Thanks for making them so easy to follow.

Dawn said...

I love the fussy cutting tip! Thanks :)

Michele said...

The tumblers would make a fun quilt. Hope I win!

Thanks for the tip about the fussy cutting, it's great. I'm learning so much about my GO. I write with a sharpie on the back of my die the size of the die and the size of the precut I need, saves a little time. I need to get a silver sharpie, my black lines are fading.

As the song goes, "I've bin everywhere, man, I've bin everywhere".. and I commented when I got there, so please can I have another entry?

Hi Darlene,
Thanks so much for hosting the blog hop! I have visited each site and enjoyed the posts. I read on your site about the Swap later this month! That's a fabulous idea! I've often thought that I would like some fabric cut into a certain shape, but not sure I would want to purchase the die. Of course, I need my own cutter. I do have access to a studio cutter, but it's not the same as having my own.

Have a great weekend!

Travelled over all the blogs & commented, too. They were all so informative.

This was the most helpful tutorial I've ever read about the Accuquilt = the freezer paper idea is just pure genius!
