Features & Specifications

Just like learning your ABCs in school, squares are one of the fundamental building blocks of quilting. This die cuts a perfect 8 1/2" square every time, even through multiple fabric layers, and finishes to a 8" square. Great for background squares and appliqué blocks.

AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 10 in. x 10 in. (25.4 cm x 25.4 cm)

How to Die Cut 8 1/2" Squares:

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.

  • Cut 9" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 9" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut four squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 16 squares.

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.
