Short Cut

After I gave up trying to cut 2-1/2” squares with my die -

I switched to my Short Cut -
My June Tailor Short Cut ™

I love my Short Cut -

I cut two leftover stacks of "chunks" 2-1/2” wide and turned them sideways -

Cut in the proper slots - and got two stacks of 2-1/2" squares -

With no hassle -

Did I already say that I love my Short Cut?

Now I have my 2-1/2" squares all cut out nice and neat -

56 red
112 white/neutral
112 black

And all sorted out for the blocks -
Moving right along -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -


  1. when I bought my short cut, I didn't know if I'd use it -oh dear - I love it. I don't have a 'cutter', but I've heard alot of different pros and cons - for now I think I'll stick with a rotary cutter!

  2. Wow! You've really got a BAD die. I'd contact them about it. Send them that picture. I few uncut spots might be acceptable but that is ridiculous!
    Looks like you're coming right along. I'm working on my star blocks now and every other step is finished. I can see the end....far away. lol

  3. That die looks so frustrating! I'm glad you had a good second option. I've not used those rulers before, but you make them look pretty slick!


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
