Making Postage Stamps :)
For this new quilt I have started cutting my strips into 1.5" segments and all I can say is make sure to have a fresh blade in your cutter. I didn't start with a fresh blade and I really should have. It didn't take me too long to figure out that I needed to change it and it made all of the difference. The cuts were much cleaner and it became much easier and quicker to do the necessary cutting. :)
Cutting the strips into smaller segments can be very tedious and long sessions are just a bit too much for me. I like the process of completing several strip sets at a time and then cutting them as I go. It breaks it up into much more manageable sessions.
