I’m taking my first quilting class and just got the supply list. I understand everything on it except one line that says “Rotary cutter, mat, and guide.”

What kind of guide are they talking about?

It's a beginner quilt class called Start Quilting. The quilt we are making is called Stair Step Rails from a book called Quilts for Baby- Easy as ABC and it's on page 32-33.

I think its a big rectangular ruler since there is no other ruler listed on the list of required supplies.

It must mean ruler...is there a ruler listed? If not, I'll be that's what they meant. Call the LQS offering the class and see what they say!

It could be a ruler or maybe something to make sure you have 1/4 " seam.

They mean a ruler, so you make straight cuts with your rotary cutter.

I am pretty sure it is a ruler...they are a must-have when cutting fabric. A 6 x 24 will satisfy most of your needs.

I would think any one instructing a beginner class should know better then to use a term that would cause confusion.

Have a great time in your class. I love going to classes.

I would think they mean a ruler. Those three things are usually lumped under the general tools section.

"Guide" It has to mean ruler. It's what you hold to guide your rotary cutter. If you want a sneak peak there are good how to "cut with a rotary cutter" demos on Youtube.
