How to Die Cut 4-Color Arkansas Traveler Quilt Blocks: 

For best cutting results, position fabric on the lengthwise grain (straight of grain) as it goes under the roller. Tip: The die is specially designed to cut one 4-color, 12” block in one pass through the cutter.  

  • Fabric Color 1: Cut one 7 3/4” x 5 3/4” rectangle and place over shape A and cut.
  • Fabric Color 2: Cut one 7 3/4” x 5 3/4” rectangle and place over shape A and cut.
  • Fabric Color 3: Cut two 7 3/4” x 5 3/4” rectangles and place over shape A and cut.
  • Fabric Color 4: Cut four 6” x 3 7/8” rectangles and place over shape B/BR and cut.  Cut four 7” x 4 1/4” rectangles and place over shape C and cut.

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.
