1  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Anyone especially good at cutting? on: September 27, 2008 06:20:54 PM
ok Im starting on my first quilt ever, i really have no idea how, but thats besides the point.  i drew out the very simple design and planned the size of each piece.   Its very organized.

When i started cutting i discovered its very hard, nearly impossible to get a right angle! i know that everything has to be precise.   i bought a rotary cutter, a mat and a big clear ruler.  These are my questions i am desperate.

  How do i get the fabric not to move around when im trying to cut it?  Im trying to get precise angles here!

 Any tips for using a rotary cutter?  Any tips for managing fabric thats way bigger than your mat and desk? I end up just so frustrated and angry!

thanks

Huh                                help!                             Embarrassed

What about a challenge to craft somethin up using all materials of the same color..... i mean EVERYTHING in your craft has to be the same color....
examples:  A blue stuffed animal... you could make a stuffed animal out of all different blue fabrics
 
or

a red picture frame thats framing a red painting with 3d red objects coming out...

or a collage using pictures that are all yellow--- what if you collaged it on one of those fake bananas for a decorative friut bowl..

Huh
