What's this!!

Whoa-ho!! What is this box sitting at my front door??


The label is clearly marked who sent it.


Clearing off my cutting table, I proceed to open this very large box.


YES!!  It is a Sew Easy Ruler Cutter that was a prize during the recent United Notions Measure Twice, Cut Once giveaway.


I had to give this a try, but found the directions were not very clear.


Lots of instructions on how to change the blade, but not too much on how to use the cutter.


But success prevailed, and I was able to cut a very nice 4" wof strip with no problem.  Which is wonderful as I have been limited cutting with my rotary cutter since my wrist surgery.

I'll keep you posted how this little gem works for cutting long strips.  I think this will be great for cutting borders without having the wave in the center *;) winking

Happy Quilting!

I am now off to look for this, since I broke both wrists I struggle when doing a lot of cutting long strips.

That looks just the ticket. I'd love to know from anyone how to avoid that wave when cutting a long border with a rotary cutter?

Congrat's on your win. In my opinion, any tool that makes quilting easier is worth its weight in gold or fabric.

I love mine. So far, no slips, unlike using just a ruler and rotary cutter.
