This time Sharon is teaching us how to cut squares from a strip of fabric.  She shows which tools to use and how to manage different sizes of squares.

I would suggest a reminder when using a 12 1/2" ruler (or any ? + 1/2" ruler) that one checks , and double checks, that you are NOT using the 1/2" side of the ruler when measuring and cutting, Mary A
Also : @ McVan - I think the photo is distorted because of the camera angle.

Nice simple instructions but with the cost of fabric the folding of the fabric could of been differently to make better use of three fabric. I would have taken the selvage of , so I wouldn't have to remember to avoid it, than refolded the fabric to one side for the needed size. This would leave a longer fabric on the edge verse one going down the centerfold. Although it's not as easy for a beginner but is almost always a better use of fabric.

LauraBC, I saw her closing her blade after every cut. That is a stickler for me too, but she does it automatically. It's one reason I use an Olfa cutter with the closing blade. I lock it when I leave the cutting table.
