How to Die Cut Local Color Quilt Blocks:

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

TIP: For three complete 4-color blocks, cut six layers of background fabric (A), three layers each of two different fabric colors (B) and three layers of fabric (C). 

  • Shape A – Block Background: Cut a 7" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4 1/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut nine A shapes across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 45, A shapes. 
  • Shape B – Concave Shape: Cut a 9 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 10, B shapes across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 30, B shapes. 
  • Shape C – Convex Shape: Cut a 7 1/4" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 3/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 10, C shapes across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 40, C shapes. 

Why Quilters Love the GO! Local Color Die: 

  • Bill Kerr and his wife, Weeks Ringle, bring a modern twist to the great American quilting tradition with decades of quilt making experience. 
  • Local Color is a Block on Board® (BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut three complete 4-color, 6" x 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. 
  • No measuring! No templates! Local Color includes three unique shapes that are difficult to cut by hand.

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.
