Don't Cut Corners when it comes to your quilting cutting supplies Rotary Cutters get dirty! Remember to clean the cutter when changing blades. Lint builds up under the blade.
Change blades often -
If you accidentally roll the blade over a pin, corner of a ruler or other hard object, the blade will be damaged and leave portions of the fabric uncut. Remember this when you are purchasing blades - no matter the price they are redundant when damaged.
Rotary cutters come in a variety of sizes - from 18mm to 60mm.
The 18mm rotary cutter is the perfect tool for applique projects, small projects, such as English paper piecing and a favorite with Sue Spargo. Small hand stitching cutting find this an essential tool. The 28mm rotary cutter is also wonderful with small projects. The 45mm Quilting Rotary Cutters are our top Sellers. It is the perfect size for quilters also is comfortable to hold. The 60mm rotary cutter has the largest blade easily cuts through thicker materials and more layers. We love this size for quilting, is perfect for squaring up quilts after they have been quilted. We also find it easier on the hand when cutting large quantities of yardage.
