    A quilting notion that really works

    Saw these "grip strips" demoed at a shop hop. Decided to spring for the $10 since nothing I've tried stops my rulers from slipping. THESE REALLY STOP THE SLIPPING.

    Good to know. I bought some and never put them on my ruler. Guess I better pull the package out and use it. Thanks for sharing.

    I agree. Over the years I've tried almost every possibility, and the grip strips are absolutely the best of them all. Someone on the QB posted a rave about them; otherwise I'm not sure I would have found them.

    I use a flexible Clear tape, aka 3M Surgical Tape. Comes on a roll like regular 'scotch' tape and I got it at RiteAid drug store. It has a nice soft weave on it that holds the rulers very well. And it is see-thru.

    I buy the course sand paper sheets that have sticky backs and cut strips for my rules , works great.
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    I have the sandpaper "dots" on my rulers (which themselves are sold as "no slip" rulers), but I still get some movement. So I'm going to give this product a try since it's gotten such great recommendations from many of you!

    Yes, they absolutely work. I love that my ruler no longer goes askew and I now have straight cuts.
