Although not needed to make the pattern, the quilts are especially easy using the Accuquilt Studio 2  and Studio Take 5 Die.  The Take 5 Die is compatible with a Go fabric cutter machine, using a Go Die Adaptor. Using the die cuts up to ten layers of fabric at one time. Reduce cut time, quilt more! Kathy Brown designed her time saving Take 5 Die to use with her Take 5 quilt patterns.

Watch this 1 minute video to see the result of using the Take 5 die.

Our feature quilt in Christmas prints is made using a pattern from Kathy’s book “Take 5: Quilts From Just 5 Fabrics”, published way back in 2010. The book is packed with 15 designs that look intricate but are very simple to construct – excellent for beginners. Simply take five minutes to choose five fabrics (one focus fabric plus four coordinating fabrics), stack them, cut them simultaneously, and you’re ready to sew creative, visually stunning quilts. This is one of Kathy’s top selling books. The patterns, tips and fabric ideas are easy and fun.
