How to Die Cut 2-Color LeMoyne Star 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 2-color LeMoyne Star Block: Cut four layers at a time with two layers of the first color, fabric right sides up and two layers of a second color, wrong sides up.
Cut 7 3/4" x 6 3/4" rectangles. Layer two layers of the same color right sides up and two layers of a second color wrong sides up on the blades and cut. For a 2-color design, three cuts across the width of fabric yield enough pieces for three complete blocks; and one yard of 40" wide fabric in each color will yield 10 blocks.

Cut so much more fabric in less time.
Get accurate cuts every time -- No slipping rulers or mistakes
Easiest to use -- Simply place die on cutter, then fabric and cutting mat on top
Save fabric with Two Tone Foam -- Get more out of your fabric by placing it only over the shape you want to cut.
Safe to use -- No blades come anywhere near your fingers
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.
