Perfect for a baby quilt, the GO! Bowtie-6" Finished Square die makes it a snap to add smart bow tie shapes into your pattern. Not just for baby quilts, bowties offer quilting versatility by allowing you to work complex geometric shapes into your fabric projects. This die is compatible with your GO! or GO! Big Fabric Cutter from AccuQuilt. The cutter cuts perfectly straight lines and precise angles through multiple layers of fabric so you'll have a stack of bowties in a flash. Since AccuQuilt takes the chore out of cutting, you get to spend more time piecing and sewing. The GO! Bowtie 6" Finished Square die is sold separately here. It's also part of the GO!

How to Die Cut 6" Finished Square Bowties:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 7 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 7 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 20 bowties across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 30 bowties.

- 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.
