    Default has anyone tried tube strips....

    using a regular triangle or square to cut them?

    are you confused as to what I'm talking about? I saw this tutorial on you tube

    Strip Tube Ruler Tutorial

    and wondered if you can't just use a regular ruler to cut them??

    Hi Shell,
    I just watched the tutorial and I think you can use a regular ruler. I think they are just using the triangular ruler to ensure that you get a square block. You should try it and let us know!

    Kind of a fun way to get a couple things done at once And I agree as long as you can get your angles pretty set and your watching where your seams are on the cut square you should be fine! Fun new technique!
    To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.

    Natalie and I tried it with a regular ruler today and as long as you get your angle right it works great and is a fun new trick!
