The GO! Strip Cutter features blades open an both ends so you can cut still-folded fabric as it comes off the bolt. This die quickly and perfectly cuts 1 3/4" strips for narrow borders, sashing and more. To cut squares or rectangles, lay cut strips across die perpendicular to blades. To cut diamonds, lay strips at a 45 or 60 degree angle.

AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 10 in. x 24 in. 

How to Die Cut 1 3/4" Strips:

  • 1 3/4" Strips: Cut 9 1/4" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut five, 13/4" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll through the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 19 strips. 
  • 1 3/4" Squares: Start with a 1 3/4" strip aligning it across the die board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 9 1/4" widths. Cut 21, 1 3/4" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 399 squares. 
  • 45° Diamond-2 1/2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 3/4" strip. Align your 1 3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line. 
  • 30° Diamond-3 1/2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 3/4" strip. Align your 1 3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line. 
  • 60° Diamond-2 1/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 3/4" strip. Align your 1 3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line.

Why Quilters Love the GO! 1 3/4" Strip Cutter Die: 

  • The smaller the strip, the more difficult it is to cut accurately  and the more strips you need. The GO! Strip Cutter-1 3/4" makes it easy to cut perfect sashing, narrow borders, bargello quilts, log cabin quilts and more. 
  • No sliding rulers! No miscuts! The GO! Strip Cutter-1 3/4" includes five strips that can be a challenge to cut by hand.   
  • Idea for scrappy quilts! Easily cut up to 6 layers of scraps or full length fabric on the die to get 15 perfectly cut 1 3/4" strips in one pass thru the cutter. 
  • GO! Strip Cutter-1 3/4" includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Cut perfect 1 3/4" strips, then use the angled guide lines to cut squares and diamonds. 
  • Die blades are 23" long and are open at both ends to allow cutting of fabric that is still folded as it comes off the bolt. 
  • Cut strips out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more! 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started.

AccuQuilt Benefits:

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.
