Flowers are a favorite motif for quilters. This die cuts a six petal flower, a curved star center, two sizes of circles for flower centers, a leaf and a curved stem. Apply fusible web to the wrong side of fabrics and die cut for appliqué shapes that are ready to fuse and appliqué. Use set of shapes for original or traditional appliqué designs. Leaf can also be used for flower petals. Stem can also be used for vines. Use two sizes of circles for berries, buttons, eyes, polka dots as well as flower centers. Die packaging includes project directions for a GO! Flowers Appliquéd Long Decorative Pillow.
Cuts one 3 1/4"W x 3 5/16"H (8 cm x 8 cm) flower, one 1 7/8"W x 2 3/16"H (5 cm x 6 cm) star, one 1" (3 cm) circle, one 5/8" (2 cm) circle, one 1/2"W x 5 3/4"H (1 cm x 15 cm) stem and one 1 1/4"W x 2 3/16"H (3 cm x 6 cm) leaf. Use 5" x 10" cutting mat (55110).
With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
Use cutting mats that matches size of each die.
For best results, cut with die blades running under roller at an angle. Do not cut with blades parallel to roller.
Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
Some dies feature specially designed corners to aid in alignment and pre-cutting.
For fast applique, apply fusible web to fabrics, then cut shapes with dies.
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.
