Tips........one every fortnight!

That selvedge edge!  To cut off or not to cut off?  I don't cut them off.  Here is why.

If you are cutting fat quartes, line the selvedge edge up on your cutting mat to a line of measurement.  Trim off the already cut side and then stat to cut.  Always keep the slevedge edge in tact.  That way you know where your slevedge edge is every time you cut from the piece.  You won't have pieces that have any bias in them which can cause distortion.
