The narrower the ruler, the less likely it is to slip while you are cutting. If you are cutting narrow strips, a 2½″- or 3½″-wide ruler is adequate. We recommend that you work with the lines of the ruler and avoid using the grid lines printed on the cutting mat. If possible, turn the mat over to the plain side. Position the ruler on the fabric, and place the ring finger of the hand holding the ruler against the ruler’s outside edge. This helps brace the ruler so it doesn’t slip while you are cutting.
Use the narrowest ruler you can for the size of strips you are cutting, and slippage will be less of a problem. note All the factors we have discussed in this class affect your ability to cut easily and accurately. The table height must be correct, the mat a correct size, the rotary cutter comfortable, and the cutter blade sharp. If you have problems cutting, consider all of the above. Your hand position on the ruler is dependent on how you stand at the table and how much pressure you can apply to the ruler.
Be sure to place the rulers on top of both dark and light fabrics to check that the color of the lines shows enough to enable you to work with the ruler easily and accurately. Check the thickness of the printed lines. The thicker the line, the greater the chance that you will measure and cut inaccurately. It is handy to have a ruler marked with a 45°-angle line, as well as 30°- and 60°-angle lines. Some brands have a ½″ measure on one side and end. Be sure to keep this in mind when cutting. The ½″ is added so that you only have to think about the finished strip size you need—the ½″ seam allowance is already added.
