The best part about the 5” Slicer is that it provides the cutting ease of a template with all the features and versatility of a quilting ruler. The easy-to-read markings and reference points are fantastic for measuring and trimming, and one side of it measures 2.5” wide which is perfect for measuring the ends of quilt bindings. Need to square up your blocks? Use the 90º angle to trim off any excess fabric. If you only use pre-cuts occasionally (or not at all), the Slicer can also easily be used on 5” wide strips of yardage. Cutting your own 5″ squares is a great option for busting those scrap fabrics!
