  • Fabric Color 1: Cut three 10" squares. Place right side up over shapes A and C to cut.
  • Fabric Color 2: Cut two 7 5/8" x 7 1/2" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes B to cut.
  • Fabric Color 3: Cut two 7 5/8" x 7 1/2" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes B to cut.

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.
