Literally thousands of quilting patterns, both traditional and modern, use rectangles. Cutting them is easy when you have the GO! Rectangle-3" x 5 1/2" (2 1/2" x 5" Finished) die. With this die from AccuQuilt, you can precisely cut rectangles that finish to 2 1/2" x 5" in a hurry. To cut the stack of rectangles you'll need for a quilt by hand or even with a rotary cutter is time-consuming and difficult on your back, hands, and arms. That's why this die is designed to use with your AccuQuilt GO! Fabric Cutter like the GO!, GO! Big, or Studio (with adapter). You can cut cleanly through several layers of fabric at once and do it 90% faster than with a rotary cutter. This eliminates the strain from bending over and stretching too far. Purchase this rectangle die individually here or look for it as part of the GO! Qube Mix & Match 10" Block.

How to Die Cut 3" x 5 1/2" Rectangles:

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

  • Cut a 6" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 6 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 12 rectangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 72 rectangles.

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.
