I bought this when it was 50% off at Hancock Fabrics. Now I'm not sure how to use it and can't find a tutorial for it. Does anybody know where the tutorial is located? Am really anxious to try it out.
Here it is--
I was just watching Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day program. She was putting together her American Barns quilt with a checkerboard border. She was using a wonderful strip quilting tool that I love. I've spent a lot of time online looking for it, but can't find it anywhere.
It was a large sheet with slots 2 1/2 inches apart. You could cut accurate 2 1/2 in strips in just seconds with this ruler, template, cutting tool or whatever it's called. It looked like the measurements were 24x24.
I found something similar on the Quilt in Day website:
but I know what Eleanor used was larger because she folded her fabric in half and was able to cut the entire length of fabric and it was also square.
While I was looking I also found this great resource:
I hope someone knows where to find this because it would certainly save a lot of time while ensuring accuracy. Thanks for any help you can give me.
