How to Die Cut Blazing Star Quilt Blocks:

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. For one complete 5-color block, cut four layers of background fabric and two layers each, right sides facing, of the light/dark outer star points and light/dark inner star points at a time. 

  • Shape A – Block Background: Cut an 8 5/8" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 22 Shape A’s across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 88 Shape A’s. 
  • Shape B – Outer Star Points: Cut a 7 7/8" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 22 Shape B’s across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 88 Shape B’s. 
  • Shape C – Inner Star Points: Cut a 10" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3 1/2" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 22 Shape C’s across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 66 Shape C’s.

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 to clean lint and thread from dies. After each use, with the die pick provided with the cutter, remove any threads imbedded between blades and foam. It's normal for threads to get caught where blades meet in a die. Remove with tweezers or die pick. Die blades never need to be sharpened.
