    I've seen the June Tailor Shape Cut ruler at Joann's and have even picked it up top buy it, but am unsure how much I'd use it. Who has this, and do you really like it?

    I have one. Once I started using it I was in love with it. Now I want the bigger one.
    You will use it more than you think. Good investment. Go for it!

    My local Walmart has both the smaller one and the bigger one. I'm going to get the bigger one, I think.

    The smaller has more markings on it, though, for the half square triangles.

    A lot of people use it, I cannot even remember where mine is. I guess I don't use it much!

    I bought mine when they first came out and never used it until I started reading here about how everyone loves theirs.

    It's a ruler that has slits in it that your rotary cutter fits into. It's great for making strips of equal width.

    Here's a link to what one looks like. You can see the teardrop shapes at the top and bottom of the ruler. You put your rotary cutter into those teardrop shapes and cut. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-63070-1.htm

    I have 2 and use both of them frequently. It is amazing how handy they come in and I find they are a real timesaver.

    I have all the versions and they have been life savers for me, since I am still quite the klutz with a rotary cutter.

    I have used them for many years and am on my third one (they break when you step on them), I have all sizes and can't imagine quilting without one. WalMart has them as does Hobby Lobby and other stores. I consider them a value at list price, but if you can use a coupon it's even better.

    I have two and use them frequently but with caution. I have to cut sitting down due to disability and if you don't hold your cutter completely upright you can actually nudge the sections and make your strip have that dreaded curve effect. Once you are aware of the possibility and pay attention, they are wonderful tools!

    I've had mine since they first came out. Its almost exclusively what I use. I wouldn't think of cutting up my blocks any other way. Slice and dice in one direction, pick up and slice and dice in other direction. TADAH!!!

    In fact, I even purchased the one with 1/4" on it. My absolute favorite quilting notion!!! :thumbup:

    I have the larger one. For longer yardage do you fold it several times? Won't it get wonky?

    I use mine to square up bigger blocks. The 1/4" cut size is the best for this. You can't just place the ruler on fabric and cut without practice. Aligning the 0 cutting slot extended line to the edge of the fabric and the bottom measuring line across the fold will give you accurate cuts every time. I cut cheap muslin until I got the hang of it.
