Recently, a friend of mine showed me her ruler with a cutter attached to it. My first thought was what do I do with that? And then she magically cut some 4" strips of fabric for me in a matter of seconds... Yesterday during a 60% coupon day at JoAnn's I picked one up for myself. In a matter of minutes I was able to slice up 12 fat quarters in 3 3/8" strips for a new project I'm working on. OMG talk about quilting smarter and not harder... the Friskars Rotary Cutter and Ruler Combo is AWESOME!
