How to Die Cut 2-Color Hunter Star Quilt Blocks:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. Cut four layers of one fabric color, then reload and cut four layers of your second fabric color.
- Cut 10 1/4" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blades and cut. Cut 10 half Hunter Star units across width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 30 half Hunter Star units.Â
