Any good??? I found some rulers I'd love to get
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
No, I haven't seen this site before. But there are some interesting rulers!
Maybe I'm weird, But I don't do good with Template Plastic. I'd truely like to get all size rulers. (4,5,6,7,8) I have the half size ones. Its sure would make it easier for me... Now to find a place that has them all. URGH! :(
Mmmmm that place is in Australia. It would be expensive for postage. Are you looking for the shape sizes in acrilic/ Joanns has different sizes use your coupon
I have always wondered why there is no 7 in ruler. Every once in awhile I need one.
Yes, use coupons at Joanns, I get most of my tools that way, saves alot of money.
We have alot of good quilt shops here in Phx. so you can find anything you want here. But shops are expensive so Joanns and Walmart and Hobby Lobby are my first choice.
I buy alot on line too. Fabric Depot and Quilt in a Day are my favorites but I shop at alot more sites too.
The dollar store is great for stuff. I buy plastic containers to store my fat quarters in. They even had metal desk organizers that come in handy.
Assuming you are talking about square rulers (the site doesn't work for me), I guess I don't understand why you can't use, for instance, a 12½" ruler to cut anything that size or smaller. It's all about multi-tasking! Just seems like the money would be better spent on fabric or something.Originally Posted by Bevanger
As for Oz Quilts, maybe ShellyQ knows something about them. She's much closer to Australia than any of us up here in the states.
Bev, being the cheapie that I am, I just go to my local hardware and have them cut a piece of plexiglass to the size I need. Find that I can get any size I need for a project for very few $$. Used one to square up a 22" block last week and what an easy proposition that was - spent a total of $2 for the "square up" ruler, didn't pull out any of my few remaining hairs and probably will have it cut down to a smaller size now that I'm finished with it. If you need any markings on it, just use a fine point Sharpie and away you go. Might add that they now save the oddball pieces at the hardware just to see what I'll need next. They're glad to be rid of the leftovers in their scrap bin.
I'll have to check around here.....Thanks for the idea... Its just everytime I use the temp.plastic... I gotta trace it then cute it out.... To me its a waste of time......Originally Posted by Farmer Girl
For me, it sure would be faster to just have the right square handy... No brainerOriginally Posted by nor'easter
