Beginning Quiltmaking Series #6 - How to Use Rotary Cutters & Rulers



Before rotary cutters, most quilters used templates and scissors to cut their fabric. Lucky for us, Yoshio Akada invented the rotary cutter in 1979. But, as with any tool, it can be misused. In this class we will learn how to make sure our cuts are accurate, as well as how to use those rulers to their fullest.

Class Prep/Supply List

  • About 1 yard of muslin or ugly fabric

  • 45 mm rotary cutter

  • Rotary cutting mat at least 18 x 24
