How to Die Cut 4" Finished Triangles in Square:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.Â
- Center Triangle:Â Cut a 5 1/4" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut eight triangles in square-center triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 48 triangles in square-center triangles.Â
- Side Triangles:Â Cut a 3 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 1/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 14 triangles in square-side triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 140 triangles in square-side triangles.
