    Welcome from Oklahoma
    A native of El Paso

    Rulers: Absolutely necessary maybe not.... essential to sanity... definitely.
    I quilted for years without them but after getting a set last year, I have used them extensively. My theory is that they weren't available to the pioneer women or my grandmother and their quilts were square and precise.

    I have a plethera of rulers. Some because it was required at a class and never used again. I find that your basics are needed. A 24", a square-various sizes, a ruler that squares your blocks.

    Good morning & welcome from Liberty Hill TX. You'll love this msg. board - I just joined last mo. & it is filled w/wonderful sharing, helpful people (from ALL OVER THE WORLD - that's so cool)

    I just have the basics I guess, a reg. marked plastic cutting ruler, a triangle & a square one. (not sure what brand or what they are even called, they are so old).

    I was born just down the road from you, in Ft. Hancock - but that was 77 yrs ago, & my folks moved when I was young. Understand it was just a "wide spot" in the road then, & not much bigger now. ;-)

    Have a blessed day & may all your quilts be filled w/love.

    Absolutely, you will find that for each pattern, there is a need for a different ruler!

    For years I just used scissors and a pattern. My daughter finally took me in hand and introduced me to rotary cutter, cutting board and clear ruler. They make cutting a lot faster and more accurate. I like complicated patterns, so they come out less wonky now than they did before.
