    me too
    I was going to buy one recently only to discover I had one, still wrapped in plastic from several years back.
    Needed it, opened it and have not stopped using.

    I am used to a regular 6" wide 24" long ruler. It appears that on the video you have to fold the width of the fabric smaller than the regular fold-in-half, the way it comes from the quilt shop. Is that correct?

    You will use it more than you think. Good investment. Go for it!
    Me, too, but I don't want a BIGGER one, I want a SMALLER one! It's sometimes awkward to cut small pieces with the 12". 6" -8" would be really handy!

    Word of warning.....

    If you don't hold the rotary cutter perfectly straight, you will not have perfect cuts the way the video shows, especially if you go that fast. I had a slight tilt of my hand and the cuts were off.

    I have the smaller one. I would not be tempted to cut without it. It changed my entire outlook on quilting and opened a door of freedome and excitement for me. I do not dread cutting my strips, squares, and squaring off anymore. No, I couldn't do without mine.

    Mine has the 1/4" marking on it too. If yours doesn't, just draw with a permanent marker or tape a mark 1/4" to the left of the "0" slit.

    I saw a large Shape Cut at my LQS today and it was $36. Is that a typical price for it?

    If you have a Hobby Lobby go online and get there 40% off then you can purchase the large one for about $16.00 dollars.

    Yep that's around the price. Some places online I found slightly less, but ot mine from Joann's online with 40% off and there was also free shipping at the time I got it, so it was cheaper over all. They didn't have the large one at the brick and mortar store.

    Hi Michele, I'm taking total credit for the idea, and for your savings!

    Which one are you all getting for $16? There is the Shape Cut, Shape Cut Plus, Shape Cut Too & Shape Cut Pro and some others that I've only seen online. I would like Shape Cut Pro if it had the 1/4" slots like the Shape Cut Plus & Too but it appears to only do 2.5/5/7.5/9/11.5, etc which is ok for a lot of things but not all that I want it to do.

    I think it works really well. It makes it faster to cut stripes

    OK, now I'm confused (doesn't take much to confuse me). :) If I am purchasing one general purpose Shape Cut ruler to cut large strips, which Shape Cut is the best for me to start with? I'd like to buy at Joann's today to get their sale price.

    They seem to put the notions and/or rotary cutting implements on sale about once a month or so, so I decided to keep watching this thread. I have an Alto Quilt Cut 2 which I need to use more often so if the Shape Cut doesn't give me at least 1/2 inch slots and preferably 1/4 inch slots in a large ruler; I'll save my money even if it is on sale. I realize I could just move the ruler to make it line up at the measurement I want but moving the ruler defeats the whole purpose of keeping everything all lined up and faster strip cutting.

    When I use mine I cannot keep the cuts straight, the fabric or template seems to slide. Help!

    You are right. Their notions are on sale frequently.
