How to Die Cut Equilateral Triangle Shapes:

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

  • To Fanfold Fabric: Cut 5 1/4" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4 5/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut eight equilateral triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 48 equilateral triangles. 
  • To Use Scraps: Place scraps or 5" precut squares over equilateral triangle blade areas. 

Why Quilters Love the GO! Equilateral Triangle Die: 

  • AccuQuilt has updated the classic equilateral triangle shape with specially designed dog-eared corners and side notches on the two bias seams. These design innovations make the triangles align perfectly so the sewing is easier. 
  • No templates! No special rulers! The GO! Equilateral Triangle die includes a unique shape that can be a challenge to cut by hand. 
  • GO! Equilateral Triangle-4 1/2" Sides is a great alternative to simple patchwork, perfect for a beginner ready for their next challenge. 
  • GO! Equilateral Triangle-4 1/2" Sides was designed to be used with GO! Hexagon-4 1/2" Sides (55438) and GO! Half Hexagon-4 1/2" Sides (55437) for endless possibilities. 
  • It’s easy to change the size of an equilateral triangles quilt—more commonly called a Thousand Pyramids Quilt— by adding more equilateral triangles to the length or width. 
  • Cut equilateral triangles out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, wool, felt, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more! 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started.

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.
