How to Die Cut 2-Color Bowtie Quilt Blocks:

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

  • 2 1/2" Squares: Cut a 10 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 52 squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 156 squares. 
  • 1 1/2" Squares: Cut a 3 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 40 squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 400 squares.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • Cut so much more fabric in less time. 
  • Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
  • Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
  • Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut. 
  • Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers

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.
