    Thanks for the tip about the shower handle!! I've wanted one of the suction handles for rulers, but thought they were overpriced. Now I can get one!! Thanks!! Oh, and I use the little sandpaper dots, and they work great. I never have a problem with my rulers slipping.

    I found one of those shower grippers at a yard sale for 50 cents. I was so excited because I knew what I was going to use it for but the girls I was with,non quilter, though I was nuts. hey i am all for saving money. I had seen thse at the quilt shop so I know how pricy they are. I love my bargin.

    Press N Seal is like Saran Wrap but it has a sort of sticky backing that makes it adhere to bowl and such and in this case, makes it adhere to the fabric. It is found in the grocery store in the same section that the Saran Wrap is found.

    Re: the Press N Seal post--sorry if I confused everyone-should not 'computer' & 'sew' at the same time.

    I use the InvisiGRIP by Omnigrid (clear plastic material) to keep my rulers from slipping.

    I mark the Press N Seal with my quilting pattern and adhere it to the fabric or block to have a pattern to follow when quilting.

    I have used the plastic for serveral years and like it very much. Every once in a while you need to wipe down the plastic to keep it working at its best. Katrina

    I use the Invisagrip plastic but I have found that a roll of automotive window tint in a light color works just as well and it is much cheaper. You can buy the automotive window tint in large rolls in the auto parts section at Walmart. I didn't have much luck with the "sand paper" dots.
