Cutting Tutorial for Quilt Projects

By:

This photo tutorial shows you how to cut different pieces for a quilt and the materials needed.

 

To Straighten Edges:
Fold fabric in half lengthwise on mat. Place horizontal ruler line on fold. Hold ruler steady. Cutting away from yourself, with blade against edge of ruler, trim away uneven edges of fabric.

Cutting fabric into strips using a rotary cutter:
To Cut Strips: Rotate mat, with fabric still in place, so trimmed edge is on opposite side. Find the vertical ruler measurement for desired width of strip. Place this line exactly over trimmed edge. Cut strip.

Sub-cutting the strips to the desired size.
To Sub-cut Strips: Place fabric strip on mat. Using same measuring technique as for cutting strips, cut squares of desired size. Always align a vertical and a horizontal ruler line with fabric before cutting.

To Sub-cut Joined Strips: Sew strips, right sides together, with 1/4" seam allowance. Press seams toward darker fabric. Place on mat. Cut at desired measurements to form already joined squares or rectangles.
