How to Die Cut Snail’s Trail Quilt Blocks:

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.

TIP: The die is designed to cut three complete 2-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. To create 2-color Snail’s Trail Blocks: Cut three layers of one fabric color and three layers of a contrasting fabric color at a time.

BONUS TIP: You also can cut two complete 4-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. To create 4-color Snail’s Trail Blocks: Cut four layers of different fabric colors at a time.

  • Cut 13 1/2" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 11 1/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. For a 2-color design, three cuts across the width of fabric yields enough pieces for a half block design; and one yard of 40" wide fabric in each color will yield six blocks

Why Quilters Love the GO! Big Snail’s Trail Die:

  • Snail’s Trail is a Block on Board® (BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut three complete 2-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. 
  • Use all of the shapes together or separately for a wide range of projects. 
  • Snail’s Trail features specialized dog-ears and includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Snail’s Trail includes screen printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes. 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads and step-by-step block assembly instructions are available to get you started. 
  • Fat Quarter-friendly.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • Cut so much more fabric in less time. 
  • Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
  • Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
  • Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut. 
  • Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers

Die Tips: 

  • With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors. 
  • Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.  Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board. 
  • Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch. 
  • It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
