I didn't know there was a 6x1. (rats! Another one for the list).
I'm using a freebie wedge shape that I got with a magazine but being wedge shaped it brings it's own challenges!  :S There's a lot of winking and squinting going on to visualise a straight line!
I like the sound of that wee dinkie one.
I can feel my mojo stirring...it's been gone so long I thought it had died. You lot are inspirational!

Hi all. I've been wanting a BIG square for ages now and I wondered had anyone any experience of the above.
They are used for strip cutting but can also be used for "squaring up" (not in a fisty cuffs way for any passing non dark siders).
Is it a case of killing two birds with one stone or falling between two stools and being useless at both jobs?
Your thoughts welcome.
Thank you. Wrenkins. 
ps I love it here. I've already picked up tips on things I didn't know had tips!

Hi.
Another new girl here. There doesn't seem to be a little face for startled or terrified so I'll just have to fling myself in.
I've recently bought a new sewing machine...nearly 40 years after buying my first, and I haven't sewn for donkeys ages so I think I'm in for a very steep learning curve.
Seems nice here. :)

Thanks Lantana. I'm a fan of gnomes...just not in the garden.  :x
I'm not really sure how to "go" a forum but I'm hoping to get the hang of it.

First post so here goes.
My accuracy needs work, I have little patience and I struggle with contrast v mush in my colour schemes but I'm keen as mustard.
I found this thread yesterday and thought "that might be good fun" so I went off to look at suitable fabrics...and then my head blew up.
Oh my! Isn't it great???? 0_0
