How to Die Cut 5 1/4" Rag Squares:

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

Note: Rag Quilt dies must be cleaned periodically to remove fabric threads. Use the GO! Die Pick (55105) to clean trapped fabric.

Tip: It’s a good idea to keep an extra cutting mat on hand for Rag Quilt dies. 

We recommend cutting only one layer of any type of fabric with GO! Rag Dies.

  • 40" wide fabric: Cut 11" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 3/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut six rag squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 36 rag squares. 
  • 60" wide fabric: Cut 11" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 5 3/4" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 10 rag squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 60" wide fabric cuts 60 rag squares.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • Cut so much more fabric in less time. 
  • Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes

  • 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.
