Stripology: the study of quilting with strips

Reduce your rotary cutting time by up to 75% with the Stripology ruler. Cut up your full width fabric and fat quarters into the most popular pre-cuts on the market – 1 ½ & 2 ½ inch strips; 5 & 10 inch squares.

Need to cut in quarter-inch increments? No problem - follow the chart included in the instructions and use the ¼ inch line on the ruler. Then, sub-cut these strips and squares or your pieced strip sets in a matter of minutes. Keep them square by placing them under the horizontal lines on the ruler – or under the marked 10 inch square.

We have the book and ruler in stock now!  Great gift idea!

Mark Your Calendars - will we be demonstrating this tool in the shop on Saturday, Dec 5th. 
Bring your machine and use my tools for a free hands on trial.
Sit and Sew a while, make a block with my scraps and donate for a charity quilt!
Create the illusion of curves with this six inch version of our popular Curvy Log Cabin Trim Tool. Mark the wrong side of the center square through the holes on the ruler to ensure a perfect seam allowance. Then sew a round – two narrow strips and two wide strips and trim. Add two more rounds to complete a perfect 6” finished block. Sew four blocks together to “piece” a circle which finishes to 12 inches. The cutting requirements for the center square and the narrow and wide strips are printed right on the ruler.
