If you’ve been quilting for long you’ve probably faced having to cut multiple strips to a certain length. While it helps to stack them, it still can be a tedious process as you can only cut a few at a time.
In the following video Stephanie from Quilt Addicts Anonymous shows how to use the markings on your mat to cut several strips to length at a time.
This works best when you need to cut the same length from many strips. The strips can be any width. Just adjust accordingly, as shown in the video.
While we prefer to use the markings on the ruler, instead of on the mat for more accurate cuts, in this case the mat works perfectly. It’s an ingenious method that can save a lot of cutting time.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
