    Do you have quilting rulers that you still haven't used yet? I got the 9 degree ruler and need to get it out and start using it. I was wondering if anyone has rulers that they haven't had time to use the special rulers yet?

    I have the 'Wave Edge' ruler which is gathering dust. I haven't used it actually to make a quilt but it does come in handy to draw a wavy line on paper / card :)

    Wow, maybe we should motivate each other to get the rulers out that we haven't used and try them

    I had quite a few rulers that were waiting for just that special quilt to use them on. I guess I will have to replace them all as I need them now. I just replaced my cutting mat and sew easy ruller cutter. I can't live without them OH I just remembered I need to replace my unpicker can't live without that either.

    Yes, in December I also bought a 9 degree (or maybe it is 10 can't remember) and a 45 45 90 degree triangle ruler for trying my hand at using stripes to make mitered squares. I just haven't had the opportunity to start a new project yet. I have so many going right now it is insane and then I have some promises in the que so I think it will be a while before I get an opportunity to break those babies in.

    I use most of mine, some much more than others. The only reason I have unused ones is because when I first started quilting I didn't know to use the same brand, so I have many more Omnigrid now than others and I use all of them.

    I have a drawer full. I use my Quilt cut to cut almost everything so really don't need to many more. You know how it goes. "I need this one just incase I decide to make that quilt!"

    I have a half-circle ruler that I thought I needed because it was on sale - haven't touched it since :) Guess I need to get over my fear of curved seams!

    I have several rulers that I don't use often but when I need them, I am glad I have them. I don't buy a ruler until I need it. Then I have them for the next time I need it.

    I bought several at Tuesday Morning when they were on sale, and I haven't even tried to use them. I seem to just use the ones I am familiar with. Maybe taking stock of my rulers would be a good "snowed in day" activity. :)

    Yes, I do. Every show I go to I manage to buy one special ruler, and it's usually a year or more before I use it...sometimes not at all. Hummm....I could donate them for the raffle table at guild. :idea: :thumbup:

    my fons & porter easy diagonal sets ruler for triangles could use a good dusting as it hasn't been touched since I bought it a couple of years ago. triangles scare me.
