How to Die Cut Snail’s Trail Quilt Blocks:

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

TIP: The die is designed to cut three complete 2-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. To create 2-color Snail’s Trail Blocks: Cut three layers of one fabric color and three layers of a contrasting fabric color at a time.

BONUS TIP: You also can cut two complete 4-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. To create 4-color Snail’s Trail Blocks: Cut four layers of different fabric colors at a time.

  • Cut 13 1/2" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 11 1/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. For a 2-color design, three cuts across the width of fabric yields enough pieces for a half block design; and one yard of 40" wide fabric in each color will yield six blocks

Why Quilters Love the GO! Big Snail’s Trail Die:

  • Snail’s Trail is a Block on Board® (BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut three complete 2-color 12" blocks in one pass through the cutter. 
  • Use all of the shapes together or separately for a wide range of projects. 
  • Snail’s Trail features specialized dog-ears and includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Snail’s Trail includes screen printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes. 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads and step-by-step block assembly instructions are available to get you started. 
  • Fat Quarter-friendly.

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. 

Use adhesive roller or die pick to clean lint and thread from dies. Die blades never need to be sharpened.
