I keep surfing looking at quilts, and reading blogs and finding rulers and tricks to make certain pieces easier to cut. To make making those "hard" blocks easier. You know what I mean?
Every single time I see one of these oh so great rulers I think, hey I made that block! I guess I don't have enough sense to know I need a special ruler to make some cuts lol!
I am very basic on rulers. I still have the same four rulers I got when I started quilting. Ok I did replace one because the numbers had worn off. But here's what I use.....
12" square ruler
8 1/2" square ruler
That's it....my whole collection of rulers. Oh wait, I think I have two of the Easy Angle ones somewhere but guess what? I never use them. I find that it's just as easy to use these four rulers to make any block I want.
I see quilters with tons and tons of rulers and I have to wonder if they all actually get used? Or is it just about having them?
I think I'd forget I had them! I know I've done that with the Easy Angle ones.
So what do you use? Do you have a ruler stash? or do you keep them to a bare minimum?
Now I'm NOT being quilt policey or judgemental or anything.....I am just curious.
