Hi there, I am Emily - aka Homemade Emily Jane, a brand ambassador for AccuQuilt! Do you agree that if it weren’t for the hundreds of thousands of people who have served in the military to protect our homeland, America would not be what it is today? With Veteran’s Day right around the corner, I am reminded just how much we need to appreciate and love on the brave men and women who have served so we can live in the land of the free. Over the past few months, I've partnered with one of my favorite veterans (my mom!) to create patriotic quilts that we can use to give back to some of our country's incredible service men and women.
Rotary cutters were a great invention that made scissors seem tedious and downright painful. With its wheeled blade and large handle, a rotary cutter was easy for quilters who thought their hands couldn’t take quilting any longer. It allowed many quilters to take back their craft, but those razor-sharp blades also bring their fair share of dangers.
Wasted fabric is a quilter's least favorite phrase, which is exactly why nearly every sewing room or space has a scrap stash. Beautiful fabric falling to inaccuracies or miscalculated cuts is enough to warrant tears. The AccuQuilt team hates to hear that fabric cutters and dies create fabric waste, because just like a rotary cutter, our products can be used improperly and not do your fabric investments any good. That's why we're sharing our top three, tried and true fabric-saving AccuQuilt tips!
