Do you sometimes struggle with getting straight clean cuts with your rotary cutter? Do your rulers slip or does your back hurt after cutting for a while?
Karen Brown from Just Get It Done Quilts has put together an informative video that covers every aspect of rotary cutting. She walks through all of the reasons why your cutting may not be as clean and accurate as possible and provides excellent tips for improving your technique.
We especially appreciate her demonstration of proper cutting form. Your posture can have a big impact on your results.
She also briefly shows how to use tape on your rulers to line up half-square triangles and flying geese units for perfect trimming.
And, of course, she covers several ways to keep rulers from slipping. You’ll find all of her excellent suggestions in the video below.

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!
