We have created a Sizzix e-brochure that contains information on the Sizzix Big Shot and Bigz dies and how they are used in patchwork and quilting.

The Sizzix Big Shot fabric die cutting machine and a range of cutting dies can revolutionise your patchwork cutting. Simply place you fabrics on the cutting pad, put in your chosen die, turn the handle and roll it through the rollers. The die will cut out your fabric shape with no need for rotary cutters and rulers ensuring that you get accurate fabric pieces every time.

As well as standard piecing shapes such as triangles, squares, tumbler blocks and apple cores you can also use Sizzix applique dies for your favourite applique shapes. Simply combine a fusible in your Sizzix sandwich for ultra accurate easy to apply applique designs. We also have a range of quilt kits that include all the fabric and instructions for making a quilt using specific dies.
