How to Die Cut 3 1/4" Squares on Point:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 7 1/8" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 7/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 20 squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 100 squares.
