    I'm obviously using a ruler that's too long, because it slips every time. Will try this. Thanks sew much for the link.

    Wow, what a great way to get it straight!! Thank You, Crafty. I learn so much from all of you on this board.
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    A great reminder and the triangle square-up sounds like a very good thing. Thanks Crafty

    I just cut some fabric with stars in lines...it was way off and had I straighten it so all the stars were straight I wouldn't have had enough...learned a big lesson...when ordering online...buy extra to straighten.

    This is a very timely post for me! Tomorrow I will be cutting strips. I especially appreciate the tip of using a triangular ruler to be sure the straight ruler is square with the fabric. I have folded the fabric in half before but was afraid to try to do another fold! Thanks so much. It will go so much faster.
