    I would say a 6 1/2" X 24" it will cover most things you will want to cut :D:D:D

    I would buy two - a 6 x 24, for sure, and 6 x 12 to be less weidly with smaller cuts. Whatever size(s) you get, make SURE they are the same brand ... or that the brand will also be available later. Don't mix brands because they can measure differently (I made that mistake.)

    I would agree 6x24 -- get it at Joann's at 50% off and you have a good buy too.

    I would say 6 1/2 x 24 for the first and then a 4 x 14 for the second.

    They all have the size right. As far as brand...I love the Quilter's Rule..it had the grippies on the back and when you push down to cut it grips the fabric. I've tried several different brands and I always go back to that.
