    Ruler Revolution - anyone tried these?

    Any one tried the ruler revolution rulers? They seem pricey so I want to ask for info before I invest. I am interested in the snow ball ones for starters.

    Here's the link on them - https://rulerrevolution.com/producs.html

    Let me know if you have tried them.

    Thanks,

    Linda

    I've never seen hese rulers. I am trying not to buy any more notions. I have purchased so many that promised to make thise easier, better, faster, etc. Most are lying in the drawers. These look interesing but pricey.

    I think this has been brought up before. Do a search and see if you come up with something. I must be tired b/c I don't understand what they do

    I don't see the need to buy a ruler specific to making "snowball" blocks etc. Lots of easier and cheaper methods for making HST's too. Triangulations software makes rulers obsolete!

    I kind of doubt that any software makes a straightedge tool obsolete. What's more, there are many of us who couldn't afford to buy triangulation software even if we wanted it. I don't see anything special about the rulers in question, but then some of my quilting buddies couldn't see anything special about the ruler I bought for the Dresden plates I love to make. froggyintexas

    I have quite a few of her rulers and they save me time...which is something I don't have much of. I have the snowball rulers, but haven't used them yet. I think they are worth the money.

    You don't know what this software does obviously, or you wouldn't comment. And the software is less than some of these rulers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0z6o7Bh7MYg

    Here are 'triangulations' or paper piecing pages one can download and do the HST's. Even using paper piecing, I still use a straight edge to cut them out.

    I don't understand the purpose of a snowball ruler. Here is a website that gives you directions to make them no matter what size you want them to be

    A dear guild member has a few of these type rulers. She uses them a lot. She has had them as long as I have been a guild member so I thought they were no longer made. Her rulers have no name or brand but looks like these but made from firm plastic stuff not acrylic. Her printed instructions are age yellow. I'll have to order a few as a surprise for her! Thanks for posting!
    Got fabric?

    They are too pricey for me. I will use cardboard before I pay that.

    Too expensive for me! I wouldn't pay that for a ruler to make Snowball blocks.

    I agree with chaskaquilter. They usually sit in the drawer.

    I have a bunch of rulers and templates but I always seem to grab the same ones over and over. I have stopped buying new ones because they just seem to sit there without being used.

    I can remember drawing lines like this directly on the fabric and stitching. Thanks NanaCsews2 for the free printout. Saves time and money can't beat that. :-)

    They are a bit pricey,But as far as I am concerned I can manage just fine without them.We use can use other rulers and get the same results like we alaready have been doing.

    Personally they look a lot more trouble than they are worth. I am not really sure that they would be worth the extra cost or aggrivation that they may cause. I have some really good ways to get flying geese and it seems to work every time as long as you get the right measurement to begin with. So am not really sure that I would get these rulers.
