How to Die Cut 7 ½" Squares:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- Cut 8" strips across the width of fabric. Fanfold into 8" widths. Place on selected blade and cut. Cut 5 squares across the width of the fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric-cuts 20 squares.
