How to Die Cut 2-Color Kite Quilt Blocks:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. Cover shape A with four layers of one fabric color and shape B with four layers of a contrasting fabric color and cut.
- Kite-Center: Cut a 5" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 8 kite centers across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 56 kite centers.
- Kite-Sides: Cut a 3 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 1/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 14 kite sides across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 140 kite sides.
