How to Die Cut Log Cabin Quilt Blocks:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. For three complete 2-color blocks, cut three layers of twoÂ different fabric colors at a time.
- Cut 23" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 6 1/2" widths. Place on selected blades and cut. Cut five block sets across width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts six block sets.

- With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.Â
- Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle.Â Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.Â
- Use good quality fabric to reduce fabric stretch.Â
- It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
