    Sorry I am very new and I may not have titled this right. All I know I have all these rulers and don't know how to use them. Thanks for your help.

    There are many uses - are you talking about just a basic straight ruler ? those are mainly used to cut the fabric with a straight edge at a certain width. Others have a specific pattern in mind - so would need to know which ones you have to be of more help :lol:

    Here are some basic explanations to the rulers - I am sure there are many http://www.hancocks-paducah.com/ItemList--Rulers--m-157

    the square ones are usually used to square up a block , to make it the correct size

    Hi
    Your local quilt shop might offer a class or demo showing how to use different rulers. If they don't they might be willing to show you. My local store had a demo last week.
