    This is literally my #1 quilting item I have. I can't imagine not having it!

    The shape cut ruler is absolutely one of my most favorite time saving tools!

    I had mine for a long time before I used it. Now it is my "go to" ruler. What made the difference was watching the video on how to use it. I really didn't have a clue and watched it twice and feel like a pro now. Glenda

    For those that don't know what this is or just want to watch a quick video on how it works, go here:

    Other than a sewing machine and thread, this is always what I suggest quilters buy for their first rulers.

    Not if you put the rubber dots in the 4 corners, you get no slipage, just a tip

    I have this one, ordered it from JoAnn's on-line with 50% coupon. It was shipped in a huge flat cardboard container (great for storage). Totally eliminates the "V" cut as fabric can be cut on the single off-the-bolt fold. These rulers are the ones I use the most.

    I love mine. Don't cut strips without it. I do agree with lindasidlow about truing up the edges every so often just to make sure.

    I found mine at a garage sale years ago and it was a while before I used it. I think I paid $3.00 dollars for it. One of my best buys, it's great for those strips.

    After years of cut, move, cut, move...watch ruler slip-I found out about these rulers on a forum like this. I went and bought one and have never looked back! You true up one side and take off from there. I can cut strips like mad and in no time have all I need. I'm going to take my scrap stash and iron all of them flat, stack them and go to work with this ruler. What a fabulous tool this is. Have them all sizes but small.

Went to walmarts and yep they had one left on the clearance rack and I snaged it up $11 went home and tried it out and man what a gem I cut for a square that I am having problems with and sewed it up and it was right on, I have been having problems cutting stright No more with this gem I love it................. So glad it came up as a topic I was getting ready to throw in the towel. Just goes to show you what a great site this is.....................

    I bought one a while back and have really enjoyed it. It makes cutting strips so much more accurate.

    I hate to say this, but I just found that I have one and have no idea of how to use it. I have a shape cut too.

    Used my 60% off coupon at Jo Ann's for Shape Cut ruler. Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but can't wait! :lol:

    I no longer dread cutting squares or strips, need to get the other one that goes by quarter inches too.

    I just LOVE mine. I did notice that they slip a little so once I get it lined up on the fold, I binder clip it to the cutting mat...no more slipping. If this one ever wears out, I'll be buying another one.

    I love my shape cutter ruler. To keep it from slipping I put tiny sandpaper adhesive dots between a few of the slots and it prevents slipping.
