Make binding, narrow borders, string piece, and 1 3/4" finished sashing in a flash with the GO! Strip Cutter. This die makes quick and perfect work of cutting 2 1/4" strips from multiple layers of fabric. The razor-sharp blades are 23" long and open at both ends to cut folded fabric right off the bolt.

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

How to Die Cut 2 1/4" Strips:

  • 2 1/4" Strips: Cut 9 1/2" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut four, 2 1/4" 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 15 strips. 
  • 2 1/4" Squares: Start with a 2 1/4" strip aligning it across the die board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 9 1/2" widths. Cut 16, 2 1/4" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 240 squares. 
  • 45° Diamond-3 1/4" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/4" strip. Align your 2 1/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line. 
  • 30° Diamond-4 1/2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/4" strip. Align your 2 1/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line. 
  • 60° Diamond-2 5/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2 1/4" strip. Align your 2 1/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line. 

Why Quilters Love the GO! 2 1/4" Strip Cutter Die: 

  • The smaller the strip, the more difficult it is to cut accurately. The GO! Strip Cutter-2 1/4" makes it easy to cut perfect single and double-fold bindings (finishes to 7/8" wide), narrow borders, 1 3/4" finished sashing, string piecing, bindings and more. 
  • No sliding rulers! No miscuts! The GO! Strip Cutter-2 1/4" includes four 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 12 perfectly cut 2 1/4" strips in one pass thru the cutter. 
  • GO! Strip Cutter-2 1/4" includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Cut perfect 2 1/4" 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.
