    Looking for 6.5 by 6.5 inch ruler with 1/8 inch grid lines on entire ruler

    I've been wanting a 6.5 inch square ruler that has 1/8 inch grid lines and all I can find are 6.5 inch rulers that mark 1/8 up to the 3 inch mark. Also, I have a 4.5 inch ruler that marks up to 4 inches.

    Can anyone direct me to a ruler that has 1/8 inch grid lines on the entire ruler? Thanks.

    I have the Olfa Frosted ruler 6-1/2" square and it is fully marked with the 1/8".

    I have several others shapes and sizes of theirs. All have the markings.
    (largest being 16-1/2" square)

    Ironically, I have never seen the type you are mentioning!

    QuiltE, I believe you have the rulers that have the hashlines but I am looking for full grid lines. Here is an example of the smaller ruler (4 inches): http://greenfairyquilts.com/catalog.php?item=4551

    I would like a 6 or 6.5 inch ruler with similar markings.

    Yes ... sorry!

    I do have a few older rulers that have the full markings that you are wanting.
    However, I do not care for them, as I find they block my view of the seamlines or markings I am trying to line up with the ruler. I find the hashlines give me enough, and leave me open viewing of the other for a better line up.

    The OmniGrid Rulers would come closer to what you want, I suspect.

    That being said, I prefer thinner lines and markings on the Olfas as I always feel I get a sharper, more precise, measurement compared to the thicker markings of the OmniGrids.

    I totally agree. I have the same rulers and I have no problem lining up without the full grid.

    Check out this: https://www.google.com/search?q=bias...DoQsAQ&dpr=1.5

    It's a 6", not 6.5", but that diagonal line is also very valuable for trimming minute amounts from blocks while squaring up. Required tool in many of my classes. Check around for best price.

    I have a couple one definitely olfa yellow marking. I prefer the yellow marking especially when working with 1/8" marks.

    I really like my Creative Grids 6 1/2" ruler, it has 1/8" marks. It is in the top of the list for first one I grab. All of my small squares are Creative Grids rulers. ( I have them in 6 1/2", 5", 4 1/2", 3", & 2 1/2" )
