    After seeing the slotted ruler on Quilt in a Day, I went ahead and got one at Joannes for around $11.
    I used it finish cutting the borders forth baby quilt I'm making, and I love it!!! Im wondering though, it seems to be a "too good to be true" kind of thing. Is it? Or is it just that wonderful!? Lol

    Are you talking about the Shape Cut by June Taylor? If so I love mine. I don't know how I would get along without it. If your not - I would love to know what you are talking about.

    I use my smallest one almost constantly. It works great to square up pieced blocks. Not too good to be true in my opinion. I have now boughten other sizes too.

    Hello, fellow Winston.

    I have three of them - - 1/2" increments in both a 12" and 18" length and 1/4" in a 12" length. I love, love, love both 1/2" increment sizes. However, do not care so much for the 1/4" increment because you have to fold your fabric so many times for it to work. Don't know why June Tailor did not make it as wide as the 1/2" increment. They are particularly great for cutting multiples of strips if you don't have a die cutter.

    KathDavis - you should do a Google search for June Tailor Shape Cut Ruler or go to this site for more information: http://www.junetailor.com/videos.htm

    Love mine -- I have the 12" and the 18" with the 1/2" increments. Did not buy the one with the 1/4" for some reason they targeted that at making fleece fringe and did not think anyone would want the full width.

    It really helps with the cutting.

    Wow! I have one of those rulers and have been using it all wrong. In fact, I gave up using it. Now that I have been enlightened, it will come out of the deep, dark corner of the closet I stored it in.

    Thank you!

    People in my quilt group are so amazed that I can cut 5 or 6 strips for binding in less than a minute....no cutting and moving the ruler....no calculation....just a good clean cut, quickly. I love mine.

    I love mine so much that I won't look at patterns that don't call for fabric cut in 1/2" increments. I know I can cut 1/4"s, but not repeats.

    OMG! I have two of them in my rack. I thought they were just for fringe. I can't wait to cut me some strips. Thanks so much for sharing.
