Hi Erica, this is just a quilting question, I'm making a quilt and I'm at the end. I accidentally bought polycotton instead of cotton for some trim, will this mess the quilt up for taking care of it?
Thank you for the cutting tips I hope my next quilt is more inline now
Thanks so much. I wish I'd have watched prior to cutting all the fabric for my first quilt. I really needed this explaination as my cuts were definitely off and this, of course, followed me through my entire project.
Thank you so much. I am new to quilting and I love your videos.
Thank you for talking at the pace you did, any slower and I would lose content. My question is about "straight of grain". Saying I'm a newbie is an understatement. I noticed at the fold that the red and white diamonds where not the same from one side to the other, does that mean the grain is off for all subsequent pieces? Is lining up the salvage edges enough, or do you have to clip and rip each side, then pull diag corners before folding and cutting? I'm starting super simple, first making compression hearts for kids, which will result in tons of scraps that will need to be sewn together to make more hearts.
What is the size of your ruler
Very helpful!! Thank you!!
I love how fast yu yalk..hate slow talkers.. Thank for this lesson..I'm new😊
very nicethank you
Very fast talker. Have a hard time processing what you’re saying. I wouldn’t be able to follow you. I did like how you stress blade safety. At least that’s what I think you said.
what brand of ruler are you using??
Great video ,Erica. Thank you. Please share info about your cutting mat. The color is great for those of us with eye sight challenges. The typical Olfa mats are great, but too dark. Thanks so much, Happy New Year!
Thank you, have watched many cutting videos and I can follow you best!
Wonderful video for me who is just beginning
Great video, thank you.
Can you do a tutorial on how to calculate how many strips you need to cut for specific pieces?
Should you wash your fabric before cutting? I usually wash my fabrics, but I haven’t made any quilts yet, and was wondering if there was a reason to not wash before cutting.Thank you!
You have taught me a lot in this video, thank you so much. You explained everything so well.
That was great. Thankyou. And I like how you don’t rave on for ages and take forever to explain things.
I still love your video though. You are adorable
I think you should stop drinking coffee before you do a video.
I changed the blade on my rotary cutter and now it seems it doesn’t move or cut properly. Can you show us how to properly replace the blade?
Does the blade roll or does it stay stationary when you push it across the fabric?
I was just thinking that! Love your videos but you talk way to fast.
Hi!I am So Glad I found your video! Thank you for sharing! Now I can star cutting.
For goodness sake please breathe and slow slow slow down
Erica sorry to contradict you like this, as an engineer i would never square off from the short edge! a quick explanation If you weren't quite on your line say off a millimeter and depending on the length of your long side your error could be as much as three millimeters plus off. It increases exponentially the longer the side!!!
What is the brand of ruler that you are using?
If you download Robert Kaufman's Quilting calculators (The Quilter's Little Helper) and it will figure out for you the yardage you need. And, it's free.Love your energetic tute.
Excellent video, thank you. You are a great teacher! Look forward to viewing your other videos.

Thank you great video.. I was having such a hard time cutting straight lines and almost thought of giving up learning how to sew because I said if i can not even cut a straight line how am i going to make clothing or anything for that matter.. loved it. Will watch more of your videos for sure]]
Thank you. Very good for us new bees
Thank you very much…beginner quilter here as well. I will definitely buy that smaller cutting square, great tips all round. Happy quilting.
I have geometry set. That will work for small triangles and small squares?
Thanks for the tips now I understand where I’m going wrong.
Thank you for your tutorials. . I am fairly new to quilting, so I am learning a lot from you.
this is by far the best video i have found on this topic. your tutorial was thorough and clear. thank you.
Love this instructional video! Very helpful, thank you 😊
Thank you! I am a brand new sewer and was completely frustrated by the process of cutting. I thought that would be the easy part of sewing. Not so much. This video is awesome!!!
Thank you Erica a clear, step by step cutting tutorial. Excellent.
Very helpful, thank you!
Hi, I don't know if you still check these posts, but can you tell me where you get your cutting mats and rulers?? 🙂
As a beginner cutting my fabric was really daunting until I watched your video. I've just cut 48 5" squares in no time at all. Thank you so much.
Thank you for doing this tutorial! Cutting fabric has been so frustrating for me. This helps tremendously!
