My cutting skills are not where I want them to be.  Some pieces cut perfectly and others - - driving me crazy!!!  I am thinking of investing in Acuquilt.  Read alot of reviews and they are all over…Continue

Rotary Cutting

I seem to have a problem with cutting strips from my fabric.  Whether they are 2" or 5" wide the centers sometimes have curve to them.  Any help would be appreciated. Continue

Hi Debbi,

Just back from my walk with Bruno, my 11 month old lab., getting bigger and better behaved,.... him not me........ delighted to get your request and of course happy to call you friend...... just been looking at your work, you have been busy, and are those blocks in pale greens, etc., BOM's, if so, they will make a lovely quilt.

hi debbie, have you found a solution for cutting that works for you? was just thinking about you, been cutting out a couple of border pieces yesterday, out picking peaches this a.m....hot, go get glass of water, no water, got the pump guy out, now am sitting here ... tired...not really focused enough to work on my quilt. so, thought i would ck in w a couple folks here, catch up on how some's issues are working out. hope that somewhere in all the comments/ sugestions you got some help. tale care...

on your strip cutting issue. thought about saying something, but i knew there would be plenty of responses and ideas offered. but, outside of that discussion thread, i would like to say my thought here, so as not to appear to disagree w anyone. i don't know what your pattern source is for current project, but you might have noticed that sometimes they will show image of the fabric layed out flat ..selvedge to selvedge w the pattern piece strips and border strips shown drawn in as a cutting suggestion. like they do w clothing patterns. that is sorta what i do now. when i took up quilting it was at the beginning of the use of rotary cutters & folding selvedge to selvedge to cut strips. this worked as the cutting mats were right size to accomadate this method. it was not too long that, like you, i notice the "v" in the strips. refolding didn't help. cutting new "straight" only helped for a while. then the "v" was back. wasted a lot of fabric. i don't like waste. plus i need to keep my fun stuff affordable, so, no waste is acceptable. so, i started changing the way that i cut. first off...the length of the fabric doesn't stretch, selvedge to selvedge does. this is the warp & the weft & i can never remember which is which. but for long continuous sash strips, border strips ...where i don't want the fabric to stretch, i cut out on the length of the fabric, along the selvedge edge after i have removed the selvedge. which i do and i know many don't but, selvedge is woven at different thread count than the body of the fabric, ergo, it will draw/shink & wear at different rate. i take it off. great for tying fab bundles, tomatoe plants .. they used to mark quilt pattern piecs w arrows to denote where you should concentrate on the "staight" of grain for this reason..to control stretch in certain areas of the pattern. i decided that w little squares and rectangles i didn't need to worry about that. but where i wanted no warpping with long lengths i would pay attention to grain.

now...the point of this little diatribe is....if you have a pattern that tells you how many strips to cut...& then the subunits to cut the strip into...i open up my fabric and cut along one selvedge edge till i have all that i need. i save the opposite long side for long strips of border cuts. you can piece borders, most do. i don't like the seam lines. it is an esthetic thing w me. if i can't acoid thos pieced borders i will work my quilting to hide or camoflage it. i also have a large table size cutting mat, but i started this routine with the standard cutting mat that most use. i just keep moving the fab to accomadate my cutting needs/plans. tedious, but the resulting acuracy and straightness of strips is worth it to me. i do most things this way. not just my quilting. my mil asked me one time..before i started quilting..."do you ever do anything the easy way?" being a smart mouth w someone who, at the time didn't view me as the dil she would have chosen lollol. i said "no, easy is boring, i like a challenge". :)) ... anyway, we get along much better...after 33years i guess i "grew" on her lollollol...but she recently inspected a miniature quilt i had finished and turned and said..."every thing you do, you do so beautifully." so..w that comment i decided i may do it the more involved way...but the results in the end project show...and for every scrap of fabric i save by not doing "quick & easy" is $$$'s toward more fabric. my end goal :))!! if the other suggestions still leave you w the "v's"...try my method. it is also a much more ecconmical way ro use your fabric. & when you may not have enough of a fabric that is "just" the right one...it evens the odds that you will have enough.

but whatever, have fun! ...and congrates on your success on your first applique project.
