Help please: I like to make diamond shape quilt, something similiar to the log cabin quilt, only in diamond shape. Is there a diamond shape ruler that you would recommend?
Thanks,

That's the one I want to do. It's absolutely beautiful. So, I thought there must be a ruler out there for this instead of using the using the paper template.

Google "Boondoggle Ruler" - Not sure if that is what you want or not. The quilt you want to make is stunning.

There are templates that DO exist because I have a set of them. There are about 5 or 6 different shapes all together in the set. I got them included in a huge box of ebay stuff though, so I have no idea where they actually came from...maybe try Joannes or some other huge store?

You can print off the diamond shape and take it to a glass cutting place. They will cut it out of plexiglass for you. Just a thought :D

I have tried Joann's and Hancock's but no such luck. Off to ebay and do some searching.

While I hate to talk you out of buying a ruler, why not just use the 30/60 degree lines on your mat and current ruler?

Wow... a set of 10 for 45 degree laser cut ruler is 50 bucks plus 5 bucks shipping. I would love to get the set but I don't need the whole set. Plus I could spend that money on fabric!!

Cathe, thanks for the suggestion. I think I will do that!!!
