    Patrice--after placing ruler on the fabric-place your hand on the lower 1/3 of the ruler--rotarycut just 1/3 of the way up-- STOP-do not move the rotary cutter from the fabric- lift your hand from the ruler without moving anything except your hand then place it on the ruler in the middle- then continue cutting with the rotary cutter another third of the way. continue this process until you are all the way up to the top of the fabric.

    If you use the Starmaker 8 for your flying geese, you can make any size without wasting fabric. Try them, you'll like the 3 Starmakers. Kaye Wood www.kayewood.com

    I use my 8 1/2 x24 quite a bit and I use a gripper handle. I have those Zimmerman rulers that has never touched a piece of material,nor the dresden. June Taylor's shape I do use and like it.
