    I buy all colors of toe separators and then match the thread to the toe separator.

    HI Barbara and all you wonderful ladies, I have enjoyed all the tips on Tuesday and spent over an hour looking at the web sights. The rulers I usually use are Omnigrid, the green ones. Others are just as good, just do not mix them with June tailor, Olfa, Fiskars and others because they might be slightly different. I had several blocks off using a long ruler and then a small square of another brand. I try to be precise and most of the time my blocks come out the correct size the first time. Best wishes for a great day tomorrow and the rest of the week.
    quilting makes our lives go round so sweetly

    I have two brands of rulers:

    I have Omnigrid (yellow lines)
    and Fiskars (black lines)
    My favorite are the fiskers because they have the extra shaded part for the 1/2" and the lines are fine.
    I don't like the Omnigrid because the yellow lines make me crazy!

    I have not had much luck finding many sizes in the fiskers. I have only two 3 1/2"x 18 1/2" and a 6 1/2" x 24 1/2" would really like to find a 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" or something small in fishers.

    Oh, that's sneaky... LOL. I tried to save mine, but in the end I couldn't resist pouring over them all as they came in.
