9781938889004: The Big Little Book of Fabric Die Cutting Tips

Do you think die cutting wastes too much fabric? Have you ever die cut a square only to find that it came up short? How can you get perfect cuts every time, no matter what system you use or material you are cutting? Learn the tips and techniques you need to make your own die cutting a success.

Written for the quilters and sewists who use die-cutting systems, and those who might like to try, this book combines the best information and expertise from leaders in the industry to improve the speed and accuracy of quilt making.

The book begins with identifying the important criteria for choosing the right die cutter for you, followed by a review of features for the 5 most popular fabric die-cutting systems: the AccuQuilt GO!, GO! Baby, and Studio; and the Sizzix Big Shot and Big Shot Pro. Note that the AccuCut GrandeMark and the AccuQuilt Studio are the same machine, and the Sizzix Big Shot and Big Kick are the same machine.

The remainder of the book covers tips about dies, mats & consumables, preparing fabric, interchanging dies, converting patterns, and making the most of your die cutter no matter which one you have. Common questions are answered, and the Resources section helps you identify what to buy, where to buy it, and how to get more help.

About the Author:

Award-winning quilter Ebony Love is recognized as one of the leading experts in fabric die-cutting techniques, and she regularly produces free videos featuring tips and techniques for die cutting and quilting.

In her quilting, you'll see Ebony's love of blindingly-bright prints, and her unabashed use of batiks and solids. She considers herself a traditional quilter who uses modern tools and color palettes to interpret her artistic voice, and of course, if it can't be die cut, it isn't getting made!

She is also a very accomplished long arm quilter, and pens a regular column for Quilty Magazine called, Love, Your Longarmer.
