How to Die Cut 2-3/4" Strips:
- 2-3/4" Strips: Cut 8¾" wide strips across width of fabric to cut three, 2-3/4" strips. Position fabric on die so fold of fabric is perpendicular to cutting blades and will roll through the cutter first. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 12 strips.
- 2-3/4" Squares: Start with a 2¾" strip aligning it across die board with the 90° guide line. Fanfold into 8¾" widths. Cut 12, 2-3/4" squares across the width of fabric. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts 156 squares.
- 45° Diamond-37/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2-3/4" strip. Align your 2-3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 45° guide line.
- 30° Diamond-5-1/2" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2-3/4" strip. Align your 2-3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 30° guide line.
- 60° Diamond-3-1/8" Cut Side Edge: Start with a 2-3/4" strip. Align your 2-3/4" strip across the die board to the right side of the 60° guide line
Why Quilters Love the GO! 2-3/4" Strip Cutter Die:
- Many quilters struggle with cutting long strips for borders. The GO! Strip Cutter-2¾" makes it easy to cut perfect borders as well as sashing, wide bindings, tote bag handles, and more.
- No sliding rulers! No miscuts! The GO! Strip Cutter-2¾" includes three strips that can be a challenge to cut by hand.
- Idea for scrappy quilts! Easily cut up to 6 layers of scraps or full length fabric on the die to get nine perfectly cut 2¾" strips in one pass thru the cutter.

- Cut perfect 2¾" strips, then use the angled guide lines to cut squares and diamonds.
- Die blades are 23" long and are open at both ends to allow cutting of fabric that is still folded as it comes off the bolt.

- 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.
