    It may not be new to others, but new for me..lol..I always have issues with my rulers, templates, etc shifting on my fabric..Especially while rotary cutting..So Isprayed the basting spray on the back of mmy 8 1/2 in square and viola! No more shifting of fabric..It's saving my sanity!

    Another nice way to solve this issue is to use sandpaper under your fabric. Good luck with your cutting!

    Ruth, I sprayed it once and did about 20 cuts..It's still tacky..I wish I had thought of it when I was cutting the other 120 squares..lol

    I also glued little squares of sandpaper right to my big ruler and that works great too. Some where on this board someone uses a suction cup thing on their rulers and they say that works well too. Haven't gotten one of those yet.
