This die gives you the ability to use fat quarters to cut different pieces at the same time and rearrange them into quilt blocks. This block finishes at 12-inches.
I used 15 pink and brown fat quarters to cut out my pieces for this quilt. I then moved each pile of squares, rectangles etc. to mix up the blocks for piecing. In one stack I moved the bottom to the top, next I moved just a random piece to the top and so on until I had messed with each stack of pieces. This will give the quilt a random scrappy look.
With the leftover edge I was able to cut 4 of my 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch rectangles. I plan to use these rectangles as a border on the quilt. It used all but some very fine slivers of the fat quarters. Not even big enough to save as a string. the final tally of pieces cut from the 1-fat quarter was:
4- 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch rectangles
1- 4-1/2 x 8-1/2 inch rectangle
1- 8-1/2 x 8-1/2 inch square
6- 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch squares
12 total pieces from each fat quarter. 5 pieces to make a 12-inch finished block, 3 extra 4-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch squares and 4- 2-1/2 x 4-1/2 inch rectangles which could all be used in the border of the quilt. Now that is what I call effecient cutting. I'm also pulling some rectangles I already have in my scrap bin of bricks to use in the border. Although I haven't looked yet I am sure that I also have some precut 4 1/2 inch blocks already in my bin that I can pull out pinks and browns from to use also.
I give this accuquilt die 5 stars for effeciency and ease of use.
