How to Die Cut 3-Color Tree of Life 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 complete 3-color 14" block in one pass through the cutter.

  • Fabric Color 1:
    • For 4 A shapes: Cut four 2 3/4" squares. Place right side up over shape A to cut.
    • For 28 B shapes: Cut three 13 1/2" x 3 1/8" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes B to cut. (There will be two extra shapes.)
    • For 1 F shape: Cut one 4 1/2" square. Place right side up over shape F to cut.
  • Fabric Color 2:
    • For 2 A shapes: Cut two 2 3/4" squares. Place right side up over shape A to cut.
    • For 20 B shapes: Cut two 13 1/2" x 3 1/8" rectangles. Place right side up over shapes B to cut.
    • For 2 C, D, and G shapes: Cut two 9 3/4" x 7 1/2" fan-folded rectangles to get mirrored G shapes.
  • Fabric Color 3:
    • For 8 B shapes: Cut one 13 1/2" x 3 1/8" rectangle. Place right side up over shapes B to cut. (There will be two extra shapes.)
    • For 1 E and F shapes: Cut one 7 1/8" x 5 5/8" rectangle. Place right side up over shapes E and F to cut.
    • For 2 H shapes: Cut two 3 3/8" x 2 1/4" rectangles. Place right side up over shape H to cut.

Why Quilters Love the GO! Tree of Life Die:

  • Tree of Life is a Block on Board®(BOB®) die which means it’s specially designed to cut one 3-color, 14" block in one pass through the cutter.
  • No templates! No special rulers! Tree of Life includes 17 shapes that can be difficult and time-consuming to cut by hand largely due to the 73 pieces needed to create the block.
  • The Tree of Life block is ideal for creating heritage or keepsake quilts.
  • Tree of Life features specialized dog-ears and includes ¼" seam allowances for easy alignment and piecing.
  • Tree of Life includes screen-printed letters on die for easier piecing and organization of shapes.
  • Packaging includes step-by-step sewing instructions to make constructing the block easy. Plus, a free pattern to get you started.
  • Fat Quarter-friendly
  • Do you EQ? If you have Electric Quilt® software, you can use it to create your own Tree of Life designs from their block library and cut your fabric.

AccuQuilt Benefits: 

  • 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

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.
