I am a ruler junkie. I love buying new rulers for specific projects, especially ones that make cutting easier and more precise. These are just a couple of my favorites.
This is a very larger ruler and works perfectly for squaring up larger blocks. I've also used it when cutting large pieces of fabric. I find it far easier to use this on big projects than trying to use the grid on my cutting mat. This is also a "grip" ruler so it doesn't slid around on the fabric much. It's one of the first specialty rulers I purchased when I started quilting, and I don't regret it.
Here are just a few projects I've used it on:
|Print Gallery Quilt|
|Wonky Square Bee Quilt|
|World of Goo Quilt|
I always use my Add-A-Quarter ruler when paper-piecing. It is definitely one of my favorite things. It has a little ridge that helps keep it in place when trimming away excess fabric from the seam. I just have the small 6" ruler, but it's perfectly adequate for any paper piecing project I've done. Here are just a couple examples from projects I've made.
