AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 6 in. x 12 in. 2 Pack (15.2 cm x 30.4 cm) Item 255112

How to Die Cut English Paper Piecing Shapes:

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

  • Fabric Hexagons: Cut 6" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold strip covering the larger hexagon shapes on the die board. Cut 32 hexagons across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 192 hexagons. 
  • Hexagon Paper Pieces: Cut 16 hexagons out of an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of paper or cardstock. 

Why Quilters Love the GO! English Paper Piecing Die: 

  • English Paper Piecing, or EPP as the truly hexie-addicted hand-stitchers call it, is the perfect “purse project.” GO! English Paper Piecing dies are designed to cut both the fabric and the paper (or cardstock) for English Paper Piecing on one die board. 
  • No templates! No measuring! No need to purchase expensive paper templates! The GO! English Paper Piecing dies allow you to cut out as many or as few hexies and paper templates as needed for a project without having to use a rotary cutter or ruler. 
  • Imagine the time you will save cutting! This die cuts up to two layers of paper or cardstock on the smaller hexagons (eight in one pass thru the cutter) and up to six layers of cotton fabric on the larger hexagons (24 in one pass thru the cutter). 
  • GO! English Paper Piecing includes 1/4" seam allowances on the larger hexagons for cutting fabric. 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • Cut so much more fabric in less time. 
  • Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes

  • Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut.

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.
