LHQSQ - Cutting HST - 2" Finished

I use another die -

To cut my HST -

That will finish at 2” -

Static cling -
Makes them look crooked -
When you take the mat off -

But it will cut -
12 at a time -
And cut off the dog ears for you -

So -

If I layer four fabrics -
Dark - right side up -
Light - right side down -
Dark - right side up -
Light - right side down -

I’ll get 2 sets of 12 matched pairs -
All ready to sew -

And -

If I watch my seam allowance -
They come out pretty well - ;))

Two sets of 12 -
All sewn up -
And - bonus -
No dog-ears to trim - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. I like the idea of no dog ears - I bought a 'point trimmer' once - what a joke! and it was on me for wasting my money.
    Happy Easter...

  2. No dog ears is always good. Could you give the mat a swipe with an anti-static sheet?

  3. Sue -

    Sounds good in theory. When I complained to a Customer Service rep about the static cling - she recommended that I take a dryer sheet and wipe the die/foam and the mat with it. BUT - I didn't think that that was such a good idea. There's a "blade" in there!!

    The newer dies have a stamp now on the side that reads "CAUTION! Cutting hazard. Avoid contact with blade." (So you know that someone probably did cut themselves,) And even if it didn't have the caution warning - common sense would/should dictate that I'm not going to wipe/rub ANYTHING over the die/foam if my hand is attached to it. Some of my dies have exposed blades - and the blades are supposed to be sharp - they are supposed to cut stuff - and with my luck they would probably cut my hand - but not the fabric. ;))


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
