Why Quilters Love the GO! Schoolhouse Die:
- The shapes on the GO! Schoolhouse die are set right up against one another on the die to save fabric when cutting. To create a traditional block, pull the front forward and add the second chimney above the resulting space.
- No templates required! The GO! Schoolhouse die includes applique shapes that are typically difficult to cut by hand.
- Layer fabric all right sides up, or wrong side up for shapes all facing the same direction. Fabric right sides together will yield pairs of shapes.
- Quickly and easily cut four of each pre-fused applique shape in one pass thru the cutter (fusible counts as one half layer of fabric).
- Cut schoolhouses out of a variety of fabrics: cotton, batiks, wool, felt, flannel, fleece, Cuddle® fabrics and more!
- A great way to use up scraps.
- Free pattern downloads available to get you started.
- Layer Cake and Fat Quarter-friendly.
- 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.
