British Patchwork and Quilting

A smaller ring-bound book on all things rotary. A look at rotary cutters, the different sizes available and why you may need them and the different shaped blade options are looked at first. Self-healing cutting mats and the required rulers are then described.

A step-by-step photographic guide takes you through how to cut with a rotary cutter correctly with the simple Dos and Don'ts. I was pleased to see a comprehensive health and safety section on how to avoid repetitive strain injury. Taking a break and simple hand, arm and neck stretches are suggested. Equipment care and storage followed by a Let's Get Fancy section looking at strip cutting, Stack and Whack, cutting with templates, using the angle lines and cutting freehand curves. Finally, there is a shape reference guide. 

This is a simple guide to rotary cutting, ideal for beginners.
