    Yes, I have two. One is marked for 1 or 1/2 inches
    and the other one is marked also for the 1/4 inch
    measurements. I have been making "Just One Star"
    project the some are doing here on the QB. This
    tool makes it a breeze in making the cuts for
    the stars.

    Yes, I have 4! I love them. I originally bought 2 one with the half inches slots and one that includes the 1/4 inch slots.

    I wasn't paying attention and pressed hard on the edge of the ruler where it wasn't on the table and snapped it. I immediately went online and ordered a new one, (although the old one could still be used) and a larger one.

    Today at a Sit n Sew, the woman next to me had one. She cut out binding for 5 quilts and let me use it to cut out borders for a wall hanging I was working on.

    This is probably the best investment I have made since quilting besides my sewing machine, rotary cutter and mat!

    Go for it!

    Yes, it makes cutting multiple strips so much quicker and is very accurate. I use mine a lot.

    I would love one, but if I fold my fabric twice I always get wonky strips. What am I doing wrong?

    I've already worn out one of the 1/2" size and am on my second one. And, I also have the 1/4" size, which isn't used as much, but is still handy.

    I absolutely LOVE my June Tailor Shape Cut. One of the best buys I ever made. They have a larger one, but that only has slits for 2 1/2" cuts, which is fine if that's all that you work on, but I prefer the one with the 1/2" slits, much more useful in my mind.

    When I use it where I have to fold the fabric twice, I am just really careful with the folding. I even measure to make sure the two folds are the same distance apart across the length and I use one of the black lines on the shape cut ruler to make sure it's perfectly perpendicular to the cut lines.

    You just reminded me I could use mine to cut the 18 2inch strips I need. Thank you for the question:)
