    Also prefer the smaller, 24 " usually too long but sometimes use. Most used 4 and half by 14

    My lip rulers are my most used, I have 3 sizes
    3x18, 5x24 and 4x36.

    After those three than it all depends on what I
    am wanting to do will decide what size ruler that
    I will use.

    I use my oddball O'lipfa 45 Angle Ruler; 5"X14". The point on it makes it easy to pick up. Should get a new one as the numbers are getting worn. Haven't been able to find one at JoAnn's.

    6x12 and 6x6. Those I can't do without. I have a large one for squaring up blocks too but wish I had one a little smaller.

    I have a metal yardstick and a metal framing square I stold from my DH. I don't have to worry about cutting chunks out of them with my rotary cutter - however, I have learned they can dull a blade reallly quickly. Haha

    I have a very very small cutting area (13x19) so my 6.5x13 ruler is great. and my 12.5 square is great.

    I use my Altos Quilt Cut2 most of the time so rulers are not used except for smaller work.

    I use my O'Lipfa 5x18 and 5x24 the most. My main cutting mat mat is 24x36, but on occasion I use the 36x60.

Is anyone else like me?
    I continue to use my 6x12inch ruler. I only use the 6x24 if I am cutting lengths of fabric for strips or for the sashing.

    I have a little 6 x 4 ruler that I use all the time. Seems funny since that is the only one that I didn't buy.
