At the ironing board, layer scraps in stacks of eight to ten layers. Press each new scrap addition to the pile, then press the stack of fabrics together so they are flat and free of wrinkles and bumps.You do not need to begin with identically shaped scraps, just stack them to yield the greatest number of pieces. Move the pressed stack to the QuiltCut2 and center on the Cutting Mat.
Tip: If you stack the scraps in pairs with right sides together, they will be ready to sew right after cutting. Just separate the cut pieces in pairs and chain-piece them to speed up the process.
With the Cutting Guide on the Side Rail and set at 90° insert and set the Speed Gauge at the desired strip width. Beginning at the top of the stack, cut strips, working from top to bottom.
Move the Cutting Guide to the Clamp Bar Rail. Reset the angle of the Cutting Guide and the measurement on the Speed Gauge if necessary. Working from one side to the other, cut pieces from the strips. Discard the unusable scraps from the edges of the stack.
Stack the cut pieces ready for placement in your quilt design. Repeat steps 1 – 3 for remaining scraps.
