My newest acquisition is an AccuQuilt cutter and I absolutely love it. You can order your own AccuQuilt through the Feathered Nest and any dies that you desire can be ordered. If you haven't tried one, make an appointment and try mine. It makes quilting more accurate and cuts the time it takes to cut in half, even more!

Place your order today.
