    I've been thinking about this idea for quite a while so after I had spent this morning tidying my sewing space I decided to try out my idea. Which was to see if my rulers would fit & sit in place on a piece of disused decking I've had just sitting around in our garage.
    You can imagine just how pleased I was when I discovered that my rulers fit perfectly into the grooves - so I thought I'd share the idea here with you all. :D :D
    To think I almost purchased one at the Malvern Quilt Show too - they were asking 25 for one. Now off to spend that 25 on some more fabrics at the weekend YIPPEE!!!!! :wink: :wink:

    That's really neat, Tisha. I have one that Pete made me, but I have way too many rulers to fit into it. I am going to have him make me a second one or a bigger one. I like your idea. Thanks for sharing.

    Great idea! I don't have any decking like that, but I got a file holder from the office supply store and it does okay. Keeps them together and upright.
