I mean ,cutting out "tile" size pieces. Is there an easy way ? Would it work if you scored a "grid" in a piece of glass ,then just snap out the squares ? It's so slow doing one strip at a time ...

yes, you score a grid. it can be done for squares, diamonds and triangles and its most easily done with a cutting system like morton or beetle bits.
