I love Quilt As You Go and use it for almost all of my quilts – but cutting the batting squares and then trimming the finished blocks to size makes a real mess of your cutting mat. All those cotton fibers get embedded in the mat and no amount of rubbing with a rag will get them out.
But there’s a really easy solution – easy, fast, and cheap.
Yep. One of those inexpensive white artist erasers.
Just rub it on the mat wherever it’s fuzzy, like you’re erasing the fuzz.
It pulls all the fuzz right out of the cuts and balls it up so you can just brush it into the trash.
In five minutes your mat will look almost like new, all ready for your next quilt. 🙂
