I'm going to try that method the next time I'm doing a quilt that I have a lot of cutting. The last project was paper pieced so not a lot of chance to try that out.

Can't view the You Tube video, but when I use my Slidelock ruler I cut from right to left. Maybe that is it.

Interesting! Other than the folding (which I may try) that is how I havenself taught myself to cut - it is the only way I could think of to get square cuts. I’m still not very good at it though especially for strips as I was doing the long thing! so I bought a sizzix machine and strip die to cut my strips (half the price off accuquilt) and I love it for strips.

Yes, products were mentioned but they were those that quilter used and found helpful. The tutorial on free motion quilting gave so much information about needle size and thread that I will view it again, Mary Smallegan was the instructor.

That Lady talks too much before she starts cutting.

I agree. C'mon, cut to the chase.

Also, I tried it. I suppose I did it incorrectly, but I ended up with a crooked piece. I went back to the old way.

I roll up my yardage by folding half of it down to the selvage and fold (roll) it up on my 6" x 24" ruler, so when I go to cut a piece off, I cut from right to left. If I was left handed, I would reverse the folding and cut from left to right. Hope that makes sense to everyone.
