what is your favorite fast-to-finish tip?

I just lift up the bottom of the ruler to remove the cut fabric and place the next piece to be cut. Nadine Bergin Sergeant Bluff, Iowa READY TO ROLL Organize rolls of interfacing and fusibles by cutting an empty cardboard gift wrap tube into 6"-long sections.
