Setting and re-setting your ruler can take valuable seconds, especially when you’re doing it hundreds of times. Whether you’re cutting HSTs or trimming off corners of a snowball blocks, this method lets you make a few cuts in one fell swoop.
- Line up (up to) four sets of blocks to trim.
- Lay the seam line along a gridline on your cutting mat, overlapping them.
- Set your ruler on top of them, adding a quarter inch from the seam.
- Using a sharp rotary blade, cut all four at once.
You’ll shave off a few seconds/minutes and use your precious sewing time a bit more efficiently.
