How to Die Cut Crazy Quilt Blocks:
For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller.
- TIP: To create a scrappy Crazy Quilt Block: Use at least 10 assorted prints. Cut up to six layers of fabric for the first pass through the cutter and then cut up to four layers for the second pass through the cutter.
- Cut 10, 13 1/2" x 13 1/2" squares. Place on selected blade and cut in two passes through the cutter. One yard of 40" wide fabric cuts four complete Crazy Quilt Blocks.
