    Which rulers did you buy that you find hard to use - or don't use at all?

    I bought some of the triangle ones that I have trouble understanding the markings on.

    i have a 4" x 36" ruler. i thought it would come in handy for cutting all the away across the width of folded yardage. turns out i'm not coordinated enough to keep the ruler straight over that long a cut. :lol:

    I have a triangle ruler that I have never used. Saw it in a demo at a quilt show and looked so fun when they did it. Got it home and wondered where my head was when I bought it.

    I have those circle wedge ruler, never used, but I do not regret buying them, just waiting for the right fabric to move me out of the chair to the rulers.

    I love rulers. I guess I just like collecting them because I only use a portion of what I have but if a new one comes out I will buy it.

    I have one like Patrice's that I can't use very successfully. I find I'm too short for it. I can't reach that far anyway. My favorite is 5" wide and about 14" long.
