Cutting Tutorial for Quilt Projects


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.
