    I have some Omnigrid rulers that I bought 10 years ago. I recently bought a Creative Grids ruler and like the clean lines. The yellow on the Omnigrid tends to make my (bifocal) eyes glaze over. Thinking of replacing the Omnigrid rulers and wonder what you all like best.

    What's your favorite brand of ruler?

    I still like Omnis the best. My piecing is more accurate with them.

    I like the creative grids. I'm slowly replacing my old rulers with them.

    I like the newer omni grids with the green instead of yellow.

    Omni are very accurate; but I do agree with the colors being hard on the eyes. The green are an improvement over the yellow. Quilt in a Day puts out great square up rulers...very clean and simple.

    I like the O'Lipfa rulers because of the lip or edge that hugs my cutting board. They don't slip even without adding little rubber or sandpaper gripping dots or Invisigrip. The lines are clear and accurate.

    My very first ruler was a creative grids, since then, I bought some omnigrid, and I have to say, I rarely use them, I seem to always grab the creative grids ruler. I recently bought their (creative grids) 12" square up ruler and I LOVE it! I just wish they weren't that expensive, I am going to save my annual 50% coupon at my lqs to get these rulers.
