How to Die Cut 2 15/16" x 3 7/8" Parallelograms:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut a 10 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 2 5/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 30 parallelograms across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 90 parallelograms.

- It's always a good idea to test cut one shape before cutting many shapes to ensure fabric orientation is correct.
