How to Die Cut 3-Color Star & Cross:

    • Cut two 7 3/4" x 3 1/8" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes D to cut four shapes.

Why Quilters Love the GO! Star & Cross Die:

  • Star & Cross is a traditional quilt block also known as ‘North Star’ and ‘Shining Hour’. The block style falls into the 'Nine X' category, characterized by a diagonal orientation within the square. The blocks are divided by diagonal seams, resulting in eight or nine distinct major shapes.
  • Star & Cross is a Block on Board® (BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut a 3-color, 10" block in one pass through the cutter.
  • No Y seams! No foundation paper piecing! Star & Cross includes 11 shapes that are time-consuming to cut by hand.
  • Star & Cross features specialized dog-ears and ¼" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing.
  • Star & Cross includes screen printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes.
  • Free pattern downloads and step-by-step block assembly instructions are available to get you started.
  • Fat Quarter-friendly

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.
