Once you have the basics down, bump up your skills with power cutting. This will allow you to cut several strips at a time with perfect precision.
In the following video Nancy Roelfsema demonstrates how to accurately cut strips using a rotary cutter. She provides many great tips for increasing accuracy and avoiding those wonky W strips that can happen too easily.
Better yet, she also shows us how to power cut. This involves cutting more than one fabric at a time. The method she uses produces perfectly accurate strips while cutting several at a time. In fact, she’ll demonstrate how to cut 20 strips in about 15 seconds!
Her process begins with folding fabric a particular way as soon as she gets it home from the store. That way she can begin cutting right away when inspiration strikes. She goes on to discuss tools and clearly explains the cutting process.
Nancy’s method prevents slipping rulers, wonky W strips and reduces waste from squaring up yardage. Once the basics are covered, she demonstrates how to up your cutting game with more speed and accuracy than you may have thought possible.
