Handy hints and project ideas using the AccuQuilt Go! and Clover Kanzashi Flower Makers

flower cake

We’d like to share with you some project ideas using either the AccuQuilt Go! Fabric cutter and dies or the Clover Kanzashi Flower Maker.  We had a class this week where the ladies where piecing together Apple Cores cut using the AccuQuilt and the Apple Core die.  These pieces show just how different your project can look using a wide array of colours and patterns in your piece.  Ros bought in her quilt which she made after she had cut all the 2″squares for her project using the GO! cutter in only one day.  She was amazed at how quickly it all came together when she could cut a multiple of squares at the same time.  (watch the video below for a demonstration on how to do this)

We also had a project arrive into the store recently which was made to look like a cake.  The lady had used the Clover Kanzashi Flower Maker to make the fabric flowers for the top of the cake.  So we thought we would share some inspiration with you and offer you the chance to see where your imagination can take you, when using either the Dies or the Flowers in an upcoming project of your own. Please watch the videos below as they can give you some amazing handy hints.

THE CLOVER KANZASHI FLOWER MAKER

Kanzashi is a traditional Japanese art form of folding and stitching fabric petals to use in hair ornaments.  But with this quick and easy template you can use them in a wide range of applications.kanzashi flower maker round petal large 3 inches Handy hints and project ideas using the AccuQuilt Go! and Clover Kanzashi Flower Makers

 

ACCUQUILT GO! FABRIC CUTTER AND DIES

We are showcasing two dies this week – the Apple Core and the Square dies by AccuQuilt.  These are used in conjunction with either the AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter or the GO! Big Electric Cutter.  These two dies are very versatile and can be used for a wide range of projects from table runners and centre pieces to full quilt projects.  See below the two dies, some instructional videos and just a few projects completed using these dies.
