Flying Geese are very popular in quilting. They are used in traditional blocks like Dutchman's Puzzle and Carpenter's Wheel. They form the star points of several star block designs like North Star and Diamond Star. This die cuts the "geese" section of finished flying geese units measuring 4" wide by 2" high. Use with the Half Square-2" Finished Triangle on the GO!® Value Die (55018) for the sky sections.

Storage: Organize GO! dies with AccuQuilt GO! Die Storage Rack (55115).
Cut up to 6 layers of cotton fabric at a time. For thicker fabrics, start with fewer layers and build up.
With some fabrics, after cutting, a thread or two will remain where die blades meet. Snip threads with scissors.
Use cutting plastic that matches size of each die.
For best results, cut with die blades running under roller at an angle. Do not cut with blades parallel to roller.
Blades on some dies are positioned at an angle. Align fabric to edge of shape, not edge of die board.
Some dies feature specially designed corners to aid in alignment and pre-cutting.
For fast applique, apply fusible web to fabrics, then cut shapes with dies.
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.
Care & Maintenance: Use adhesive roller to clean lint and thread from dies. After each use, with the die pick provided with the cutter, remove any threads embedded between blades and foam. It's normal for threads to get caught where blades meet in a die. Remove with tweezers or die pick. Die blades never need to be sharpened.
Warranty: AccuQuilt GO! dies are guaranteed for one year.
