    fabulous new ruler

    I found this ruler recently and it is awesome. I always have trouble joining the seams on pieces for binding, I could never get the lines just right. This ruler makes it so perfect, no drawing lines, just cut and sew 1/4" seam. Also good for flying geese and many other uses. Watch the video here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8lF0xR-HeU

    I have this ruler and use it for circles but I didn't realize it could help me with the binding, too. I always have fits when joining!

    Interesting. I am going to have to check it out. I had a circle cutter but ended up giving it away because the fabric would always slide while I was trying to cut. This looks simpler to use ... hmmmm Thanks for the info

    Will have to look for this or see if any rulers I already have would do the same thing. My binding pieces or snowball joints never come out nice no matter what I do.

    I have this ruler, I used it once, and forgot that I had it. Thanks for reminding me. Old habits are hard to forget!
    Believe, it can be done!

    That looks like a good ruler to have ... I found it priced from about $17 to $25, so do some research to get the best price.

    Thanks for the video. I will be getting this ruler as soon as I find it at my quilt shop. I am making a quilt that this ruler would be a big help since it has a lot of marking that I could eliminate. Thanks again!

    Creative Grids® Quick Trim and Circle Ruler. I found mine on ebay, and the site where I bought it had the demo video
