  • Straight Feathers: Cut and fuse 1 7/8" x 3" rectangles. Cut 13 straight feathers across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 247 straight feathers. 

Why Quilters Love the GO! Feathers Die: 

  • Feathers have long been a favorite motif for quilters. This die cuts perfect straight and curved feathers that can be used for applique designs, flower petals, angel wings, birds, raindrops and border designs. 
  • No templates required. The GO! Feathers die includes two shapes that are typically difficult to cut by hand. 
  • Quickly and easily cut four of each pre-fused applique shape in one pass thru the cutter (fusible counts as one half layer of fabric). 
  • Cut feather shapes out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, wool, felt, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more! 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started.

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.
