Don’t you hate it when your strips have “elbows”? Wanting to be a better strip cutter? We show you how to cut strips accurately. Mary’s Quilt Emeralds (hanging behind her) is featured in the March/April issue of Love of Quilting. Emeralds’ digital pattern is available at ShopQuilty.com. Many of the notions shown on Quilty are available at ShopQuilty.com. Mary uses two rulers, a basic rotary cutting ruler and the Square Up ruler, to ensure straight cuts on her fabric.
