Hey guys! I’m back with another fun video in my Quilting 101 series.  I hope you enjoyed last week’s video where we learned all about fabric. And today I’m going to show you my methods for cutting up all of that pretty fabric! Cutting accurate pieces is one of the first steps to creating a beautiful quilt, so let’s get started.



For today’s video you’ll want to get out your self-healing cutting mat, a clear acrylic ruler, a rotary trimmer, and some fabric.


Here are the supplies I’m using:

  1. Thank you so much! I wish I had watched this before I sewed my first quilt. It ended up all kinds of crooked. It’s for my niece’s first birthday, and I don’t think she’ll care much anyway, but my next project will definitely need to be better quality. I need to get one of those wide rulers. I used a regular school ruler, and needless to say, that didn’t work very well. I learned a lot from your video. Thanks for taking the time to teach us some tricks.

  2. I see that the prior comments are 1 1/2 years old, so I’m hoping you are continuing your tutorials. I’d like to keep watching.
    Do you have any recommendations for working with fleece for baby quilts? Just looking for some tips. Thanks
