Block Assembly Instructions 

AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 6 in. x 24 in. (15.2 cm x 61 cm)

How to Die Cut 3-Color Flying Fishs:

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. Tip: The die is specially designed to cut one complete 3-color 9" finished block in one pass through the cutter.

  • Fabric Color 1:
    – Cut two 8" x 3 5/8" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes A to cut four shapes.
    – Cut two 4" squares. Place right side up over shapes B to cut eight shapes.
    – Cut two 5 7/8" x 7 1/4" rectangles. Fanfold and place (4 layers total) over shapes D to cut four chisels facing one direction and four chisels facing opposite direction.
  • Fabric Color 2: Cut two 4" squares. Place right side up over shapes B to cut eight shapes.
  • Fabric Color 3: Cut two 2 5/8" x 4 3/4" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes C to cut four shapes

Why Quilters Love the GO! Flying Fish Die:

  • Flying Fish is a traditional quilt block that falls into the ‘Four Patch’ category, characterized by a diamond within a square. Four Patch blocks are divided into four parts by horizontal and vertical seams.
  • Flying Fish is a Block on Board® (BOB® ) die which means it’s specially designed to cut a 3-color, 9" block in one pass through the cutter.
  • No Y seams! Flying Fish includes 10 shapes that are time- consuming to cut by hand.
  • Flying Fish features specialized dog-ears and ¼" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing.
  • Flying Fish includes screen printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes.
  • Free pattern downloads and step-by-step block assembly instructions are available to get you started.
  • Fat Quarter-friendly
  • Do you EQ? If you have Electric Quilt ® software, you can use it to create your own Flying Fish designs from their block library and cut your fabric.

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.
