How to Die Cut 2-Color Kite Quilt Blocks:

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. Cover shape A with four layers of one fabric color and shape B with four layers of a contrasting fabric color and cut.

  • Kite-Center: Cut a 5" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 8 kite centers across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 56 kite centers. 
  • Kite-Sides: Cut a 3 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 1/8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 14 kite sides across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 140 kite sides.

Why Quilters Love the GO! Kite Die:

  • Kite is a Block on Board® (BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut one 2-color (or more), 8" block in one pass through the cutter. 
  • No templates! No special rulers! Kite includes two unique shapes that are difficult to cut by hand. 
  • Kite features specialized dog-ears and includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Kite includes screen printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes. 
  • Free pattern downloads and step-by-step block assembly instructions are available to get you started. 
  • Charm Square-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 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.
