I'm a bit new to this quilting hobby. But I have found that I've ended up with quite a few rulers. I don't have a surface area large enough to use one of those mail sorters and I'm not to keen on making a fabric hanging organizer. Anyone have any kind of creative ideas? I saw some stand a lone ones at http://www.romwoodworking.com/shoppi...er_organizers/ but I kinda want something antique/unique..Suggestions are more than welcome. ;D

My last sewing room had enough wall space that I hung them with push pins on the wall. I did use those circular hangers from Hancock's/JoAnn's but found them to be a nuisance trying to get to the one I needed each time.

My long/big ones are in a tall skinny box that stands on the floor next to a small three-drawer stand.. My small ones are in a drawer (on my good days).

I have put a row of small 'L' shaped hooks on the back of the door. Rulers that I don't use everyday live there on their own hook. Those I use every day sit on their edge in slots cut into a piece of wood beside my cutting mat.
