Everyone loves the soft, homey look of a rag quilt, but hand-cutting the fringe can be a pain (literally). The smart GO! Rag Square die pre-cuts the 3/4" long fringe edges with perfect 1/4" wide fringes. Simply sew the fringed rag squares together with a 1" seam allowance and you're done! Beautiful rag quilt gifts in no time!

How to Die Cut 8 1/2" Rag Squares:

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

Note: Rag Quilt dies must be cleaned periodically to remove fabric threads. Use the GO! Die Pick (55105) to clean trapped fabric.

Tip: It’s a good idea to keep an extra cutting mat on hand for Rag Quilt dies. 

  • Advised to start with 1 layer of fabric for rag dies.  
  • 40" wide fabric: Cut 9" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 9" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 4 rag squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 16 rag squares. 
  • 60" wide fabric: Cut 9" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 9" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 6 rag squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 60" wide fabric cuts 24 rag squares.

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.
