How to Die Cut Hexagons:

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

  • 1" Sided Hexagon: Cut strips 2 1/4" wide across the width of fabric. Fanfold fabric into 2 1/2" widths. Place fabric on selected blade and cut. Cut 16 hexagons across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 256 hexagons. 
  • 1 1/2" Sided Hexagon: Cut strips 3" wide across the width of fabric. Fanfold fabric into 3 1/2" widths. Place fabric on selected blade and cut. Cut 11 hexagons across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 132 hexagons. 
  • 2 1/2" Sided Hexagon: Cut strips 4 3/4" wide across the width of fabric. Fanfold fabric into 5 1/2" widths. Place fabric on selected blade and cut. Cut seven hexagons across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 49 hexagons.

Why Quilters Love the GO! Hexagons Die: 

  • Hexagons are perfect for scrappy quilts, ‘I Spy’ quilts with novelty fabric or for making traditional hexagon quilts, such as Grandmother’s Flower Garden. 
  • No templates! No measuring! The GO! Hexagons die includes three hexagon sizes that are difficult to cut by hand. 
  • Great value! Get multiple hexagon sizes for the price of one GO! Hexagon die. 
  • Get even more design options and avoid the dreaded ‘Y-seam’ when you combine GO! Hexagons with GO! Equilateral Triangles (55079) and/or GO! Half Hexagons (55165). 
  • Imagine the time you will save cutting! This die cuts up to six layers of cotton fabric to get 18 hexagons (6 ea. in 3 different sizes) in one pass thru the cutter. • GO! Hexagons includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started. 
  • Charm Pack-friendly

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.
