I'm having issues with my ruler always moving on me while I'm cutting long strips of fabric. I have purchased the suction cup handle to place on my ruler & also put the sandpaper dots on the underside of my ruler. What am I doing wrong or how can I correct this issue?
Thank you in advance for all suggestions.
Here are links to the Booms I have finished as well as the blocks for individual swaps I have made and received.

Such a yummy sandwich and every time we go "home" I must visit a Maid-Rite restaurant.
If anyone has the recipe for these sandwiches I would love to try

Um, I can't think of the word for them, senior moment right now, but they are vertical and go along your ruler.
I have NEVER quilted. I love reading about and seeing all your quilts. I was wondering if this idea I had would work.
I plan on making quilt blocks by embroidering different quilt designs on a block then sewing them all together. I would make a quilt sandwich then embroider it. What do you think?
I am new to this site and it looks like a great network to be apart of. I am excited to make some new friends who share the same obsessions, I mean, interests that I have.
My first Blog is random, but very much needed.
I have officially run out of excuses to tell my husband on why I keep buying fabric. I have already used the following;
Hun I'm making our son a quilt that will be passed down and cherished. Can you really

I was given 2 FQ's of the pale blue fabric and told "see what you can do with this", it was left over from a challenge my club members participated in.
I stitched out the embroideries and then let it sit for a while as I didn't want to set it in rows. Searching through my designs I found the embroidery for the centre block so I stitched that out.
