    Love my new rulers!

    At the quilt show this past weekend I bought myself a 6 x 24 Creative Grids ruler and all I can say is
    I LOVE IT! The little gripper pads are wonderful! I now play to buy more!!

    I also WON a door prize at the same show, June Tailor's Twist and Stitch. I cut out my first small twister wall hanging tonight and LOVE IT! I'll post pictures once I finish! I just love getting new tools to play with. Just had to share!

    I bought my first Creative Grids a few months back and am now a "convert". I have since bought 3 more and plan on it being the ONLY ruler I have. They're just perfect.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I have a 9-inch square Creative Grids ruler and I love it. Will definitely buy more when I need them...

    I'm so glad you like you new ruler. The 6 x 24 was the first Creative Grids ruler I bought at an AQS Quilt Show in Knoxville, TN.

    I bought several more at the same quilt show a year later. They really do grip the fabric nicely.

    Looking forward to seeing your twister wall hanging!

    I'm glad that my beginning quilting class teacher recommended Creative Grid for my 1st ruler and now that's all I use! So easy to read and good on the fabric.

    I agree, Creative Grid rulers are the best. I have gradually been replacing all of my old rulers with them, much easier on these "older eyes"

    I too am replacing my rulers with Creative Grids rulers. I ordered a nice size set for my Christmas present to myself. No one knows what I want better than me. LOL

    I only wish the the smaller one had 1/8" markings like the 6 x 24"! Don't like using a large ruler for my small piecing but do love the Creatives.

    I have the 7/8" ruler from Creative Grids. It is so handy to have. It is a must have ruler for me.
