Rotary Cutting Cleo Curves! VIDEO

Rotary cutting curves with Inklingo

One of the wonderful things about Cleopatra’s Fan with Inklingo is that you can use a rotary cutter OR scissors—something you can’t do with acrylic templates.

Just follow the lines! Haven’t we always preferred to have a line to cut along?

Even better, once the shapes are cut out, you can sew by hand or by machine.

This is a great time to be a quilter!

 

Rotary cutting Cleopatra's Fan

There are illustrations on page 83 of the Cleopatra’s Fan Quilt Design Book showing why the method we use for rotary cutting with Inklingo is SAFER than traditional rotary cutting with templates or rulers.

Since the design book is free (for a limited time only), you can order and download and have all of my best tips.

It makes sense that rotary cutting straight lines would be easy and safe.

However, you might be surprised how easy it is to rotary cut curves without a template! I was!

How to rotary cut curves - VIDEO

This short video shows how to rotary cut curves, including my best tip—focus your eye about a half inch ahead of the blade. (In order to do that, you must position the fabric so you can see the line easily. Makes sense.)

You can use your ordinary 45mm rotary cutting blade for all of the curves, no matter which of the 3 sizes you choose.

With acrylic templates, it is sometimes necessary to use a smaller blade because a normal one won’t fit the shape of the acrylic edge. No need to buy a special cutter and blades. (Those tiny blades wear out fast.)

Worksheet 12 (of 24), 3 fabrics, 12 Cleos!

In addition to the illustrated sewing instructions (hand and machine), cutting tips and pressing diagrams, there are TWO DOZEN worksheets in the Cleopatra’s Fan Quilt Design Book and ideas for choosing fabric.

The design book is free for a limited time ($20 value).

Go ahead, order and tell your friends, so they don’t miss it!

 

Templates for Cleopatra's Fan quilt

This optional Combo layout allows you to print and cut 6 shapes. Rotary cut the rows apart first and then rotary cut the rest.

You will have stitching lines, matching marks and precision corners on every shape to make the sewing faster and more precise.
