Default Creative Grid Rulers???

How many use these rulers? Also which ones do you have and which do you like the best..

I bought the Log Cabin ruler and it makes a 6 inch and a 12 inches block, I really love this ruler it makes perfect blocks each time. and so easy to use. They have a lot of different creative grid rulers, just don't know which would be worth buying.. I hate to buy a ruler and find out that I would hardly use it......Thanks

I really like Creative Grids rulers. I have a lot of the speciality ones. I don't mind buying a ruler and using it for one quilt. No big deal to me. My favorites are the 8 1/2 x 24 and the 7/8 ruler. All the lines are marked in 7/8 increments. Saves so much time when cutting strips for hsts squares.

I'm slowly replacing my Olfa rulers with Creative Grids. The first one I got was required for a placemat class. I was resistant about getting it but ended up loving it. I cut so much more accurately with them. Maybe I'll look into the log cabin ones.

I have several and just purchased the 4, 5, and 6" pineapple trim tool mini. Can't wait to try it.

I'm also slowing replacing my other rulers with Creative Grid. My three favorites are my 6.5x12, 8.5x24 and my 3.5x3.5. I am doing the 365 block challenge and it's got a lot of very small HST and Flying geese, so the 3.5x3.5 gets used a lot for trimming them up.

I have an 8x12 a 6x24 and a few block rulers. I love all my creative grids rulers, in fact probably wont buy another omnigrid ruler again. The quality of them is just superior

Most of our rulers are CG. My favorites are the 8.5 X 12.5 and the 6.5 X 24.5. I needed a couple of square up rulers in a hurry one time and purchased a set of the yellow Omnigrids. I like them ok but love the CG. I won't buy any more rulers for measuring that are not CG.

I prefer my Olfa frosted rulers to the creative grids rulers because they seem less cluttered to me.

I love the 8.5 by 24.5in much more than the Omnigrid I was using before. I find the markings a lot easier to follow and it slips less. When I need to replace any more rulers, I plan on buying Creative Grids. It's more expensive than buying the Omnigrid or Fiskars at JA with a coupon but as my eyes get older it's harder to see the markings on the others.

Creative Grids has a web site with a video for just about every ruler. I really enjoyed watching them.
