Sometimes it's those big rectangles that are hard to get perfect. When you want crisp corners and absolutely straight sides in a New York minute, use the GO! Rectangle-4 1/2" x 8 1/2" die to cut these large rectangles perfectly, every time and through several layers of fabric. You simply need a 10" x 10" mat, your AccuQuilt GO! or GO! Baby Fabric Cutter and that gorgeous fabric you've been eyeing.

AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 10 in. x 10 in.

How to Die Cut 4 1/2" x 8 1/2" Rectangles:

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

  • Cut a 9" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut eight rectangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 32 rectangles.
