What is the easiest and fastest way to cut fabric for quilts? Do the automatic machines work well or are there disvantages to using them? Such as fabric waste, preparation for inserting, etc.
I am a long time sewer, relatively new quilter. I like to do projects that I can complete relatively quickly and easily. I also really like to use scraps. The cutting process frustrates me quickly. Is there a faster way than ripping or hand rotary cutting? I mostly cut squares, rectangles, or strips.
