GO! Strip Cutter-1 1/2"
Easily cut perfect 1 1/2" strips quickly and accurately. The die has cutting blades that are 23 1/2" long and are open at both ends to allow cutting of fabric that is still folded as it comes off the bolt. Use the cut strips for sashing, narrow borders and string piecing or lay them across the die perpendicular to cut squares and at a 45 degree angle to cut diamonds. Die packaging includes project directions for a Framed Charm Squares to GO! baby quilt.
Cuts five 1 1/2"W (4 cm) strips. Cut even more with up to six layers of 100% cotton fabric. Use 10" x 24" cutting mat (55113).
With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
Use cutting mats that match 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.
