    Squaring up with shape cutter

    This is probably one of those things that many quilters know but jut now I had an "ah" moment.
    I had been cutting strips with the June Tailor Shape Cut and had laid that aside to go back to working on a star quilt. Just had started to square up the first block when I saw the Shape Cut sitting right there.
    aligned the 45 deg. Line with the seam down the middle of my block. Easiest squaring up I've done in a long time. My eyes & hands just don't work like they did 30 years ago
    hope this idea can help some other "granny"

    Good idea. I have those "granny" eyes too.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    I use my Shape Cut for squaring up more then for cutting strips. It works great.
    Got fabric?
