Rotary Cutters and Scissors for Quilting & Stitching

Rotary cutters – what some people refer to as rotary scissors – are essential quilting tools. A rotary cutter produces a crisp, clean cut that you won't get with other cutting devices. On the other hand, if you're cross-stitching or doing some other type of embroidery or needlework, you'll need a pair of good-quality scissors for the task at hand.

Whatever your stitching passion may be, Fat Quarter Shop is here to help with razor-sharp scissors and quilting rotary cutters that make your job that much easier.

We have a generous selection of sewing scissors and rotary cutters for quilting in various sizes from some of the most respected manufacturers of cutting tools. Whether you're a novice or a long-time quilter, you'll appreciate the quality performance our quilting rotary cutters provide.

How to Use a Rotary Cutter for Fabric

Using a rotary cutter for fabric takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, you'll understand why quilters prefer using rotary cutters on quilting fabrics. Follow these steps to get the best cut:

1. Cover your table with a self-healing cutting mat to prevent damage to its surface.

2. Line up your quilting ruler with the fabric you want to cut.

3. Place your hand firmly on the ruler to prevent it from slipping.

4. Begin cutting. Apply steady, even pressure. Pro Tip: You'll need to use more pressure than you think when using cutter tools.

5. Make the cut firmly and quickly. If you cut too slowly, your fabric may shift and ruin the cut.

6. When you're finished cutting, engage the safety lock on your rotary cutter to avoid injury from the stainless steel cutter blades.

Once you're comfortable using a rotary fabric cutter, you'll be able to cut more than one layer of fabric at a time.

Choosing Rotary Cutters for Fabric

The size of the rotary cutter you need is based on how much quilting you do, the difficulty of your projects and your level of proficiency. If you do a lot of quilting, you may wish to buy multiple rotary cutters for fabric. Here's a rundown of the different sizes:

  • 18mm & 28mm: Smaller quilting rotary cutters make fast work of intricate cuts. They're ideal for cutting curves and corners because they're easy to maneuver.
  • 45mm: The best all-around reliable rotary cutter is a 45mm rotary cutting tool – it's a must-have for every quilter. This is the most common size and is designed for small to medium quilting projects.
  • 60mm: Perfect for a larger quilting project, the 60mm rotary cutter can slice through multiple layers of fabric with ease.
