How to Die Cut 1 1/2" Strips:

  • 1 1/2" Strips: Cut 8" wide strips across the width of fabric to cut five, 1 1/2" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll through the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 22 strips. 
  • 1 1/2" Squares: Start with a 1 1/2" strip aligning it across the die board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 8" widths. Cut 25, 1 1/2" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 550 squares. 
  • 45° Diamond-2 1/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line. 
  • 30° Diamond-3" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line. 
  • 60° Diamond-1 3/4" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 1 1/2" strip. Align your 1 1/2" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line.

Why Quilters Love the GO! 1 1/2" Strip Cutter Die.  

  • No sliding rulers! No miscuts! The GO! Strip Cutter-1 1/2" includes five strips that can be a challenge to cut by hand. 
  • Idea for scrappy quilts! Easily cut up to 6 layers of scraps or full length fabric on the die to get 15 perfectly cut 1 1/2" strips in one pass thru the cutter.
  • GO! Strip Cutter-1 1/2" includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Cut perfect 1 1/2" strips, then use the angled guide lines to cut squares and diamonds. 
  • Die blades are 23" long and are open at both ends to allow cutting of fabric that is still folded as it comes off the bolt. 
  • Cut strips out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more! 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • Cut so much more fabric in less time. 
  • Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
  • Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
  • Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut. 
  • Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers

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.
