I don't have quite that many, probably closer to 20-25, but I am like you in that I need all the help I can get to keep from screwing up!

Do I get to count the ones DH steals. He figured out the smaller quilting rulers are perfect for his patch and ribbon placements on his uniforms....
Think I have 8

I was about to answer "only 2," but while reading further remembered other rulers; including the 3 pk of squares still in the just-delivered mail and the metal carpenter's angle I realized has many uses at the cutting table, I have 12!

I stopped counting at 75 because I figured you guys would thinks I'm off my rocker. LOL I agree with you as I am also crazy when it comes to measuring. Also you are so right when you say they are for specific patterns. At least 50 of mine are for a specific pattern. Now getting around to using all those templates is another thing.

I have 15. Instead of using what I have I go buy the one pattern says to use to make it easier following the pattern. But, when I compare to my others they are about the same.
