    Squaring Up Options:

    With the full width of the fabric folded only once to two layers,
    you can square up the Super Easy Way with three Guidelines Rulers connected as a corner square.

    With the full width of the fabric folded only once to two layers,
    you can square up the Super Easy Way with
    three Guidelines Rulers connected as a corner square.

    With the full width of the fabric folded only once to two layers, you can square up the Super Easy Way with
    three Guidelines Rulers connected as a corner square. See four steps below.

    Connect three 6”x12” Guidelines Rulers to make a corner square.

    Line the Fabric Guides’ edges on the bottom Ruler up to the folded edge of the fabric.

    Hold the 6”x24” Ruler in place with your left hand while squeezing the release levers on the Connector with your right hand to take the bottom ruler off. Then trim off the raw edge.

    You can then slide the Guide up to the fabric's edge, and start cutting accurate strips from the same side of the fabric without having to rotate it 180º.

    If you're comfortable folding your fabric twice to four layers,
    you can square up the Super Easy Way, using just
    two Guidelines Rulers connected as a corner square.

    If you're comfortable folding your fabric twice to four layers,
    you can square up the Super Easy Way, using just
    two Guidelines Rulers connected as a corner square.


    1) Connect two 6”x12” Guidelines Rulers to make a corner square.

    2) Line the Fabric Guides’ edges on the bottom Ruler up to the folded edge of the fabric.

    3) Hold the Ruler on the left in place with your left hand while squeezing the release levers on the Connector with your right hand to take the bottom ruler off. Then trim off the raw edge. (Reverse this if you're left-handed.)

    4) You can then slide the Guide up to the fabric's edge, and start cutting accurate strips from the same side of the fabric without having to rotate it 180º.

    Most quilters find it easier to square up accurately
    with the fabric folded only once.

    Connect two rulers end-to-end, and you can square up the
    full width of fabric folded only once to two layers.


    If you’re comfortable folding the fabric twice into four layers,

    you can square up using just one Ruler.


    End to End, Side by Side or as a Corner Square

    You can make a 6"x24" to cut the full width of fabric or connect them side-by-side to cut wider pieces. You can even make a Corner Square to square up but taken apart, they will fit in a small bag or even in the case with your sewing machine.

    How to Connect
    Guidelines Rulers

    How to Take the Rulers Apart

    Squeeze the extensions on the end of the Connector together and slide the top ruler to the right until the tabs are back in the center of the holes.

    Then you can lower the ruler and pull it away. Squeeze the extensions again to take the Connector off the other ruler.

    Square Up Your Fabric 101:

    Click the headings below to open. - Click again to close.

    Go with the grain for perfect piecing.

    Fabric is much easier to work with if you pay attention to the grain.

    Fabric comes on a bolt folded once with the selvedges together.
    If you unfold it, it will be about 44” - 45” wide.

    Try this yourself

    Hold a piece of fabric right below the selvedge edge.

    First, stretch right below parallel to the edge:

    Then, move one hand down a little and stretch again:

    The first step in any successful quilt project is squaring up

    To square it up, the goal is to cut just inside one raw edge of the fabric,
    so that the newly cut edge is aligned with the crosswise grain line of the fabric.

    Folding Fabric 101: Leave it folded once in 2 layers or
    fold it twice into 4 layers: That is the question.

    To trim off the raw edge, the fabric will need to be folded at least once, so it’s about 22” wide, and you can use a 24” ruler to cut across the full width of fabric.

    Some quilters fold it twice to four layers, so it’s about 11” wide, and they can use just one 12” ruler.

    Either Way, the goal is to fold it precisely so that the grain line on all the layers of fabric are perfectly aligned with each other.

    Pick the fabric up holding it just by the selvedge edges. If the grain on both layers is aligned, the fabric will drape smoothly.

    If the grain is out of alignment, the fabric will twist a little and not hang smoothly. You can adjust the top layer back and forth against the bottom layer until you eliminate any twists in the fabric. Once you get the fabric to hang smoothly, keep the selvedge edges aligned, lay it on your cutting mat and finger press the folded edge.

    You can fold the fabric again by aligning the folded edge with the selvedge edges.

    Some quilters do this but if you don’t get all four layers aligned accurately, your strips will come out with a slight “V” like the image on the left and will be unusable.

    Cut Pieces Fast & Accurately with Guidelines Rulers:

    Now you can start cutting strips using 1 or 2 Guidelines Rulers.

    If you squared up the Super Easy Way, you're ready to start cutting strips.
    If not, you'll need to rotate the fabric 180º first.

    Set the Fabric Guides for the width of strip you want to cut.
    The Fabric Guides' edge will catch the fabric's edge for perfect alignment.

    Using 2 Guidelines Rulers
    Connected As a 24" Ruler

    This way, you can cut strips from the full width of fabric only folded once to two layers (about 22" long).

    Most quilters find it easier to cut straight strips this way.

    Using 1 Guidelines Ruler

    To cut strips from the full width of fabric using 1 Ruler, it will need to be folded twice to four layers (about 11" long).

    You want all four sides of your squares to be exactly the same size.

    Grooves in the Fabric Guides lock dead center onto the measurement lines underneath the Guidelines Ruler. Leave the Fabric Guide exactly where it was when you cut the strip, and you'll cut perfect squares.

    First, square up one end of your strip.

    Then trim off just inside the selvedge.

    Finally, cut squares
    by lining the Fabric Guide's edge up to the Fabric's edge.

    Sew the Pieces Together Accurately:

    There are two things that matter when
    sewing your pieces together into blocks:

    • Consistency - To have your blocks come out perfectly square and lay flat, you need to sew all the pieces together with the same width of seam allowance.
    • Accuracy - To have your blocks come out the right size, the width of your seam allowance should be a Scant ¼”.

    If you sew nine 2 ½" squares together with a consistent Scant ¼” Seam Allowance, your block will measure 6 ½". That's a finished size of 6" with an extra ¼" all around so it can be sewn to other blocks or sashing to make a finished quilt.

    Click the headings below to open. - Click again to close.

    A Scant ¼” is just slightly less than a full ¼” & the reason
    it matters in quilt piecing is actually pretty simple.

    The thread and fold in a seam have some width. To compensate for that, you sew slightly less than a full ¼”, so your finished seams actually come out measuring a full ¼”.

    That way, all the pieces and the finished blocks come out measuring the exact sizes a pattern gives.


    See how sewing a scant ¼" helps you get
    nice pointy points in blocks like these.
