I really like this tutorial on cutting as a left or right handed quilter. Thank you very much this will be very useful. Roseline, Québec
Excellent tutorial! Thank you, I think I had gotten a bit sloppy in my cutting, BUT I have been doing much better lately, went back to doing what I was taught! LOVE YOUR FABRIC CHOICE! Do you do web orders, minimum cut?
Thank you Vanessa for always looking out for us left handers!
Thank you Vanessa! I have never quilted, but am plucking up the courage to start with my first project. I thoroughly enjoy your inspiring videos, and have watched them all – quilting and others. Off to a well-informed start to my quilting phase. Thank you once again!
You are so awesome. Thanks for the tips especially because I m a leftie
Thanks for the Left Hand tips and your help today!
Makes so much sense! Thanks!
Loved ur two ruler trick… Thanks…. Where can I get that rotary cutter from. I m fron India.
Hola Vanessa!!. Me encantan tus videos. Pero me gustaría que hicieras más en español. Yo sé un poco inglés paro me cuesta mucho seguirte ya que hablas muy deprisa. Thanks y un beso.
Hi what’s your canals an speaking Spanish
From this lefty, I thank you Vanessa! 💚
2 ruler cutting… brilliant!!!! Thanks for the tips!!!
amazing tips can't wait to try it. thanks Vanessa
Those tips are very helpful.
This video is really helpful. I just finished your raglan T-shirt class and learned several new techniques. I just signed up for the quilt club and this will be my first experience with quilting. I have both of these rulers but had no idea that they are used together for cutting. Your great tutorials are why I signed up for the club. Excited to get started! I
Thanks, Vanessa!! I love the way you explain tips and tricks. So glad I signed up for the CGQC.
Thank you for the tips. I'm a lefty and recently tried th 2 rulers, helps alot with control and accuracy.
I purchase your curve running ruler could be show how to use it. I'm new at sewing
Wow – that is such a fabulous idea. I could have used this recently because I made my first quilt and it was not as exact as I thought it would be. I have joined your Quilt Club because I need more "training" exposure to work on more quilts. You are a great teacher. Thank you.
Great information…thank you.
This left handed newbie really appreciates your explanation and demonstration. Thank you.
Vey good tutorial CG!
Do you ever use the lines on the cutting mat to measure? Is that not as accurate as the two-ruler method?
Will this way make sure we dont get an elbow in our strips?
The best as always 👍🏼
Hi Vanessa, since you only need 4 of the 3-1/2” x 5” rectangles, why wouldn’t you cut a 3-1/2” strip? Seems like you’re wasting fabric!
Lov d the tips!
Great tutorial as usual! After cutting to straighten the edges, rather than flip the fabric over (sometimes it flips unevenly), look at what you trimmed off. If it's two layers, you're good!
Another tip relates to you mentioning wasting fabric by trimming too much when squaring it up. In your example, you needed 4 pieces measuring 5" x 5" and 4 pieces measuring 3 1/2" x 5". Typically, you can get 8 cuts of 5" out of a width of fabric cut. So why not cut out the 5" x 5" pieces first (they are the largest) then cut the 3 1/2" x 5" pieces from the remainder. I noticed you cut two 5" strips. If the pattern only needs one cut, you'll save yourself that other strip 🙂
Thank you. I use two rulers sometimes.
Thank you so much for this tutorial! Have always appreciated your teaching style!
swooning on the fabric behind you
Yes, this is very helpful. I am left handed. I would like to see how you handle larger pieces like 10 yards. I need to straighten the edges and cut 2 1/2 yards off. It has been washed and is wrinkled . I find this much yardage overwhelming to work with. I am a newbie.
Very helpful! Excited about the quilt club and loving these video tips. This old dog is learning some great new tricks!!! Lol
Thank you. This is very helpful since I am a lefty!!!
This is the best tut for cutting and subcutting that I have ever seen online. Thank you, Vanessa.
