AccuQuilt - Fussy Cutting Tips

Hi Quilty friends! Today on the AccuQuilt Blog (HERE)... I'm going to share some helpful tips on how to fussy cut your fabric PLUS a technique to perfectly cut pattern fabric using your AccuQuilt! 

What is "fussy cutting"? It is when you choose to cut a specific pattern/object from your fabric. I absolutely love to fussy cut my fabric! I especially love to fussy cut the center of my blocks as it adds so much interest to your project!

I love to fussy cut my fabric AND use my AccuQuilt so be sure to check out my full blog post on the AccuQuilt Blog (HERE) including a little "how to" make your own 6" Sawtooth Star blocks AND a 18" Sawtooth Star Pillow.

Supplies: Gather up your supplies then go the AccuQuilt Blog to start cutting and sewing!

- AccuQuilt Cutting Machine: GO! Me, GO!, or GO! Big
- GO! Qube Mix & Match 6" Block
- Pattern fabric for fussy cutting. *I used I Spy Panel (Spring) by Ann Kelle
- (9) 10" squares for star points *I used Modern Classics by Violet Craft
- 1/2 yard white background fabric 
- 3/4 yard backing fabric
- 22" x 22" batting
- 1/4 yard binding OR use leftover fabric from 10" squares to create a pieced binding
- 18" pillow insert

Many of the projects I create include fussy cutting a particular object and/or cutting my fabric so the fabric pattern is straight in my blocks. This is super important for stripe, plaid, and select pattern designs as the lines will appear wonky if not cut correctly. Having well cut fabric makes a HUGE difference for your finished project, which is why I love my AccuQuilt dies! 

Below are some recent projects that I was careful to align the fabric pattern with the cutting edge of the die before cutting.  You can click on the die name to see which die(s) I used.

GO! Drunkard's Path 7" Die

GO! Glorified Nine Patch Die

GO! Qubes
