Nothing makes creating mini quilts, narrow accent borders, narrow sashing, or string piecing as quick and easy as being able to cut multiple layers of seven precise 1" strips. The GO! Strip Cutter die has ultra-sharp blades that are 23" long and open at both ends to let you cut folded fabric right off the bolt.
AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 10 in. x 24 in.
How to Die Cut 1" Strips:
- 1" Strips: Cut 7 1/2" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut seven 1" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll thru the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 33 strips.
- 1" Squares: Start with 1" strip aligning it across the board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 7 1/2" widths. Cut 37 squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 1,221 squares.
- 45° Diamond-1 1/2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1" strip. Align your 1" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line.
- 30° Diamond-2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1" strip. Align your 1" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line.
- 60° Diamond-1 1/4" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1" strip. Align your 1" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line.
