The most exciting part of starting a new project - cutting! Do you have all your fabrics picked? Your blades sharpened? Are you ready to go?
So, how do you usually like to cut for a quilt pattern?
I cut everything before I start the first stich
I''m super organized and label everything - even my labels 😉
I cut for each block as I go
It's pure chaos when the blades come out ✂️

I was confused too! My template ended up too big to fit on the 13” length of fabric as shown on the background cutting diagram. Will just use a bigger piece of fabric!
Help. My taped XXL template measures 13.5 x13.5. I printed at 100% and my control block measures exactly one inch. What am I doing wrong?
In cutting the standard drunkard path pieces, do you use one single paper template to make all the fabric cuts, or you print and prepare a paper template for each fabric cut? As hard as I try to be exact in cutting the curved area with my rotary cutter, I occasionally nick the paper. I’m worried my last fabric cuts won’t be as exact. Thoughts?
