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 write about Quiltmaking. My three books are from C&T Publishing, "Rotary Cutting Revolution" is the newest. I teach Quiltmaking internationally and on Craftsy http://tinyurl.com/conazfy I like what I do. This blog is occasional, scrappy and book-like; my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/makeitsimpler is lively. I guard my privacy and cherish any spare time I have to sew.
