A few of you have expressed an interest in my custom FQ die and how you can get one like it. First of all, I'm flattered. Thanks, peeps for thinking I've "dun good". LOL! Second, y'all are "noreply" so I can't contact you directly, so I'm doing so here on my blog, which may also help those who are interested in the future.
Now on to the important stuff... Yes, I did design this die myself -- it is custom and not stocked for sale by AccuQuilt. However, it MAY be possible to obtain one for yourself by contacting AccuQuilt directly with the information I am about to share with you. FYI -- I drew up my prototype using my EQ (Electric Quilt) program. Made it easier for me and AccuQuilt was very impressed. *big grin* Once I submitted the prototype, the ball got rolling and they quoted me a price ($132.00) and after my approval of their CAD drawing, they sent it on to be manufactured and shipped to me.

With that all said, and considering all the "hard" stuff is done, I wouldn't be surprised if they kept my die board in their archives (I mean, what if I use this one to death and need another? LOL!) So I will share with you my "die number." Ready? It is FQS9200186. And I called the die "FQ To Scraps."
I hope those who are interested can get one for yourselves. I'd love to hear from you on the outcome of your inquiry. Good luck!
I am a retired 57-year old widow with two lovely, grown daughters. I am also blessed with a wonderful teenaged grandson, and two beautiful teenaged step-granddaughters, or granddaughters-in-love, as I choose to view it. *Grin* Happily, we all reside in Florida within 30 minutes of one another.
I also have an energetic Yorkshire Terrier/Bichon Frise mix, Tasha. I don't know what I would do without her. She brings me constant joy.
