How to Die Cut 3" Finished Triangles in Square:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Center Triangle: Cut a 6 1/4" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 20 triangles in square-center triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 100 triangles in square-center triangles.
- Side Triangles: Cut a 5 3/4" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 40 triangles in square-side triangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 240 triangles in square-side triangles.

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