Helpful Tips

Straight, Accurate Cutting:
Always use laser-cut acrylic rulers with your rotary cutter and cutting mat. When cutting, press down firmly on the ruler. Always cut away from your body, rolling the blade against the edge of the ruler. Practice until you are able to get a straight, smooth cut.

Straight Accurate Quilt Cutting

First Cut:
To straighten the edge of your fabric and trim away the raw edge, fold fabric in half lengthwise. Place ruler on fabric with raw edges to your right (opposite for left-handers). Line up the grid lines on your ruler with the fold of the fabric. Cut along the edge at a 90 degree angle to the fold.

Cutting Strips:
Turn fabric so trimmed edge of fabric is on the left (opposite for left- handers). To cut fabric strips, decide on desired width of strip. Place ruler over cut edge of fabric at desired width. Make sure the vertical lines of ruler are parallel to the cut edge of fabric. The horizontal lines of the ruler should be parallel to the fold of the fabric. Cut fabric strip.

Cutting Strips for Quilt

Cutting Corners:
Cut beyond the corner point on one side, then cut along the other side beyond corner.

Larger Cutting Surface:
Butt two cutting mats together and secure with masking tape from the underside.

Cutting Paper & Vinyl:
Rotary cutters can be used to cut paper and vinyl. Always keep these blades separate and never use them to cut fabric. Use dull blades to cut paper.

Using the 60mm Rotary Cutter:
This cutter can be used for most projects. The larger blade provides more cutting surface with fewer revolutions.

Keep cutting mats clean by wiping with a soft, damp cloth.
