A rotary cutter is a tool usually used by quilters to cut fabrics. It consists of a handle with a rotating circular blade, hence the name of the tool. The rotating blades are very sharp and are available in different sizes: Usually, the smaller blades are used to cut small curves, while the larger blades are used to cut straight lines and wide curves. Numerous layers of fabric can be cut concurrently with a sharp (fresh) blade, making it easier to cut tile pieces in the same shape and size as with scissors. Quilters use rotating blades with specially designed templates and rules made of transparent or colored plastic about 1/8 inches thick.
