ACC GO! Carpenter's Wheel-18" Finished Die

Making this classic block has never been faster or easier, cutting all the pieces a single block in just one pass through the cutter. Specialized dog ears will ensure that all the pieces fit together just right while you build this block.

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.
