    Question Need help please

    I am starting my first official quilt, and I currently have a June Tailor quarter cut. I'm moving on to start cutting the second batch of squares and I realize that I need something that will cut 2 7/8 strips. Ugh! Can you recommend a template ( would prefer a strip cutter type one) that isn't horribly expensive?

    If the squares you are cutting are to make half square triangles just cut them 3 inches and square up the hst after they're made.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Most rulers and cutting mats have 1/8 inch increments on them.
    The one who dies with the most fabric wins.

    What everyone else has said if the strips are for half square triangles, just round up to 3" and trim.
