Would recommend if you're a "gadget girl" or "ruler girl" like I am. Good luck & enjoy.
    Thanks for the input. It is good to hear from somebody who has actually used the ruler. Will have to add one to my collection. lol

    Your Pineapple quilt is jaw-droppping stunning! I love the colors. And I agree about using the folding paper method so you don't have to tear out paper when you finish piecing - so much easier.

    I am totally a gadget girl. I bought both sizes of that ruler in Houston. I love the fact that you don't have to cut each piece to exact size. I've had major problems making my log cabin blocks in the past and I hope these rulers make it easier and more fun.
    Peckish, your quilt is gorgeous!
