    Which one do you use to cut out the majority of your fabric?

    Scissors for me. I'm starting to learn how to cut with a rotary cutter, but have only used it for binding strips.

    I only use scissors for minor trims. It's rotary all the way for me! Just think of yourself as a purist (O: Rotary cutters haven't been around too long in the history of quilting. Wonder if they quilted before scissors were invented?

    Rotary Cutter. I only use scissors to trim or cut threads, and applique' on the rare occasion I do it.

    I still have scissors. If I decide to invest in a rotary cutter, do I need to be concerned about the brand to get a certain quality?
