    Wow, friends, this ruler is awesome!! I am FINALLY starting my floral log cabin ala Karla and now Deb.
    I've been collecting florals for several months and have some nice fabric to work with.
    I bought the ruler at Joanne's w/ a coupon but actually forgot about it. Does that tell you the condition of my sewing room??? hehehe
    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

    Just some of my fabbies! Ohhh I long for Spring! :)

    That sounds like something I'd really like. Which size did you get? And is it 1/8 or 1/4 slot intervals? And can you use a 45mm rotary cutter? Thank you for the info. :)

    I used my 45 rotary cutter and went through 4 layers easily.
    The increments are 1/2 inch.
    Mine is about 16 inches square
    They probably make a bigger one but I don't know. I wanted to see how I liked this one and I love it.

    The ruler looks nice, but those forals are gorgeous. I have a few of them, but love the rest of yours.

    She does make a bigger one. I have the 1/8 cuts one and I just mark with blue tape where I'm supposed to cut when I'm cutting oddles of strips.

    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!

    I have one of these and the only problem I have with it is that it nicks the blades of my rotary cutter sometimes. But, otherwise, I love it.

    I've been using mine for a few years now and I've had perfect strips. It's such a blessing how fast it goes too.
    Glad you have one.

    I have 3 of them but use the 1/2 and 2 1/2 ones more! They are great! I also have the GO but actually prefer to use the June Taylor to cut strips.

    Can anyone post pictures of how you use it? I've seen it and got confused just looking at it.

    Oh I love the fabric on the right! Is that the same one as the strips? Are they Bleeding Hearts?? Gorgeous!

    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:
