Step 1

1. Turn your cutting mat clockwise 90-degree with the newly cut edge toward you. Find the 9-1/2" mark on the ruler, then line up the 9-1/2" mark with the bottom edge of the fabric. Be sure to leave a small amount of fabric to trim. With one hand, hold the ruler firmly in place. Use your other hand to cut the fabric the length of the ruler. Without moving the ruler, turn the corner and continue to cut along the ruler's short edge. Turn your cutting mat clockwise 90-degree with the newly cut edge toward you. Keeping the 9-1/2" mark on the ruler lined up with the same straight edge, slide the ruler toward the folded edge of fabric. Continue cutting along the ruler's short edge to finish cutting the fabric. You now should have three squared sides.

Step 2

2. Again, turn your cutting mat clockwise 90-degree with the newly cut edge toward you (the side remaining to be cut should be on the right). Line up the 9 1/2" mark on the ruler with the left straight edge. Begin cutting the right edge. Finally, slide the ruler up to finish cutting the edge (see Step 4). You now should have four 9 1/2" squares.
