There are 26 Tip Boxes in Rotary Cutting Revolution.
This tip from the book leaves many quilters momentarily speechless in workshops.
To quickly and accurately cut a large square of fabric using a small square ruler:
1. Fold an oversive square of fabric into fourths
2. Cut off raw edges to create a fabric square 1/2 the desired size.
3. Unfold square. Voila, it's the desired size. Gasp.
Pictured: A torn oversize square of fabric approximately 18" was folded into fourths. Now about 9" square it will be trimmed to 8 1/2" square by cutting off the raw edges (top and right) Unfolded, it will be 17" square.
Be there and be square with less space, Make It Simpler.
I live in midtown Manhattan where I am a full time quilter and the author and innovator behind three Make It Simpler® books from C&T Publishing and dozens of patterns including my Cutting Lines™ patterns.
My work has been displayed everywhere from the floor of the International Quilt Festival in Houston to an enormous screen high above Times Square in New York City.
I teach Quiltmaking internationally and online with Craftsy: http://bit.ly/TradBlocks
