    I am almost embarrassed to say that I have not quilted one stitch (or read one page) since before June. I have been busy organizing a national conference and it consumed all of my time. Now that it is over I can get back to what I want to do rather than what I have to do .... and, of course, I want to quilt.

    I ordered a June Tailor Shape Cut ruler this past spring and used it for the first time today. I just love it! It made it so easy to cut the strips, once I figured out how to calculate the numbering for the strip widths. So easy to cut the full width strips - the ruler didn't slip and I could make a second and third cut without having to move the ruler.

    This ruler is a keeper!

    I got one of these when Walmart had them on Clearance. It is hanging up with my other rulers and I keep forgetting about it! Everybody raves about it so I need to just lay it on my table so I remember I have it!

    I love my Shape Cut - all of them! I will warn you though that they do slip a little bit. Not so much that you may notice it but will show up in your piecing eventually. Its a good idea that when you finish cutting across once, it is a good idea to true up your edge again. You will no doubt find a little uneveness.

    I love mine. It makes cutting so much more accurate and fast. Don't know what I ever did w/o it.

    I bought two JT shape cut slotted rulers at Joann's with 50% coupon a while back, and they are still in the plastic wrap-I haven't cut out a quilt since then, still trying to finish what I have already started (hand-quilting takes ages!). I tend to stick with the same rulers I have had for years, but I will give these a try on my next cutting session!

    The shape cutter rulers are great. But, if you tilt your rotary cutter even a little bit the sizes aren't uniform.

    For those of us with hand difficulties these rulers are best used for making bowls and such ... not for precise cutting.

    the rest of you enjoy it.

    I have the Shape Cut and the Quarter Cut.....very valuable tools. They never slip as long as you hold the side securely, and that's not difficult at all.
    You can cut several thicknesses with no problem.
    And.....fast!!!

    I love mine -- have used it for years. I do true up the edge whenever I have made three or four cuts because it does move a tiny bit.
