    June Taylor Grid Marker/Shape Cut

    I bought a bag of quilt related things at a garage sale and in it was a June Taylor Grid Marker. It reminds me of a June Taylor Shape Cut but is of more light weight plastic. I have used it and is it ever slick. I was wondering if those that have the June Taylor Shape Cut also use it as a grid marker when marking your tops for quilting. It is sure a time saver.

    I just use mine for strip cutting. Handy for strip cutting scraps. Mine is the Shape cut.

    I think the slots are too close together to use as a strip marker.

    No way to get a marking tool into the lines of the ShapeCut (unless maybe if you use a pounce pad -- haven't tried that). I put the sandpaper dots on the bottom of mine so it doesn't slip on the fabric. Works great!

    Ohhhh.... wait, I just realized that "slick" can mean both "slippery" or "amazing". If you meant the latter, then dots aren't needed & congrats on your wonderful find!

    I have a grid marker stencil that I use with my pounce pad. The grid work helps me keep my FMQ somewhat consistent and evenly spaced. (Notice I said somewhat.)

    I bought one when they were on sale at JAF. I make mostly scrappy quilt so I very seldom get my Shape cut pro. It is just too big for me to handle.

    I have the Shape Cut and I do really like it. I seem to be wearing some of the slots out though

    Turn it over and use the other side. You Just have to get used to reading the numbers backwards. I've been using mine that way for a couple of years.
