Do you have an Accuquilt die cutting machine?

I am one of the many quilters who purchased an Accuquilt machine along with several really cool dies. However, I am ashamed to say that I have not really used it much. I made one tumbler quilt back in 2009 and that was it.

 One of the reasons for this is lack of knowledge on using the machine. It isn't that it is really difficult but you do have to do a few things to make sure your pieces come out accurately. I have been doing a ton of reading and watching YouTube videos to learn how to use my dies. I am determined to use my Accuquilt go and take control of my scraps!

 So my New Years resolution this year is to learn how to use all of my Accuquilt dies to control my scraps and make lots of great projects. I hope you too will dust off your die cutting machines and join me in learning all there is to know about Accuquilt!

 Here is a list of my current dies.   Each number is clickable and will take you directly to the Accuquilt site to show you each die.
