Rectangles should be a snap to cut, but making each one perfect can be a pain (sometimes literally). Make it easy by letting the GO! Rectangle-2 1/2" x 4 1/2" die cut perfectly precise rectangles every single time and through several layers of fabric. All you need is a 6" x 12" mat, your AccuQuilt GO! or GO! Baby and fabric. Combine this rectangle with existing AccuQuilt GO! block dies to make a variety of 6", 8", and 12" block designs.

Compatible with these fabric cutters:

AQ Cutting Mat Required: GO! Cutting Mat, 6 in. x 12 in. 2 Pack (15.2 cm x 30.4 cm) Item 255112

How to Die Cut 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" Rectangles:

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

  • Cut a 9 1/2" strip across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 3" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 26 rectangles across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 78 rectangles.

Why Quilters Love the GO! Rectangle- 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" Die:

Tip: Two 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles sewn together form a 4" finished square.

  • Rectangles are a basic building block in quilting. A simple shape that is a favorite with all quilting skill levels because they’re easy to arrange and sew. The number of ways you can use them is endless and they are included in thousands of quilting patterns. 
  • The GO! Rectangle-2 1/2" x 4 1/2" die is the perfect size to cut your own rectangles with your favorite fabrics or out of fabric pieces from your stash. 
  • GO! Rectangle-2 1/2" x 4 1/2" includes 1/4" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing. 
  • Cut rectangles out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, wool, felt, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more! 
  • A great way to use up scraps. 
  • Free pattern downloads available to get you started. 
  • Layer Cake and 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 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.

AccuQuilt GO! Dies are guaranteed for one year. We may deny warranty coverage if the product is damaged from using an unauthorized part.
