    They probably make a bigger one but I don't know. I wanted to see how I liked this one and I love it.
    But there is a line for a 1/4" add-on. Suppose you want to cut 2 1/4" width. Line up the edge of your fabric on the "dashed" line to the right (or left) of the "0" slit then cut at 2".

    Dakotamaid, what a good idea! Thanks

    Funny, everyone wants a bigger one but I want a smaller one!
    Kitsie, you are right! I was so excited that I left out some details lol

    Are you making a traditional block, or will you make a curved one? What width are your strips???

    I have a lot of questions, huh? :lol:
    Karla, that fabric is sweet peas. I love it!
    I'm not sure how I will position the strips yet. I want it to look like yours! lol
    I cut 2 inch strips- hope they aren't too narrow. What do you think??
    Thanks for looking!

    Weelll... mine are 1.5" for florals and 1" for lights... and there are a lot of strips per block. I just counted--17 pieces per block. But--it'll look beautiful no matter what you do. I just like the effect of skinny strips. :wink:

    I have this ruler and love it. One tip for those who want to get one, if you are like me, not exactly a mathematical genius, get some small colored dots from the office supply section of a store. Stick them on the ruler where you want to make cuts just to make sure you cut the right sized strips or blocks. For example, if you are cutting 2 1/2" strips, put a dot at 2 1/2, 5, 7 1/2 etc. You can reuse the dots or just use new ones each time. They are very inexpensive and save on cutting errors.

    I bought this to cut fleece blanket fringe before I started quilting. I cleaned my sewing room this weekend and hung it up on the wall. Thought to myself I should throw that away I won't ever use it again. LOL Now I know what it is really for. Can't wait to try it. Again I learned something new today. TA DA!

    I have one and LOVE it!! It is my go-to ruler. If there is any way I can use it instead of a regular ruler, I will. In fact, about the only time I use my 5 x 23 ruler is when I am ruler folding my fabric.

    I was at the quilt shop today and the owner was showing us her ruler. She using what she called glow strips under the slots where she needed to cut. made sense...place one at the 3", 6", 9" and 12" and have 4 strips cut in no time. And...never cut if the tap is not under the the slot. She said the glow strip is easy to reposition.
    Want to get me one of these because I spend more time position my ruler than cutting strips and it kills my hand to press down on the 5" ruler I use to keep it from slipping.

    Anyway, I'm off and running with strips! It also has many other shapes you can cut and is very affordable!!
    Hugs to all, Sue :D
    OOOH. That black background-large floral print would make a beautiful kaleidoscope. Pretty fabrics you have there. And that's an awesome ruler. I use it often.

    I feel a shopping trip coming on.... I so want one of those rulers. I like that it has all those diagonal markings. And I LOVE your fabrics.

    They also make it with a 1/4 slot space which is great.

    I had just promised myself that I would spend no money on quilting this month. Then you guys come along with temptation. That ruler and a floral log cabin and sure nagging at me.
