    I'm glad to hear others say that about the pattern, I thought it was just me but yes, it does seem confusing and once you get it, its amazing how easy it is!

    I took the measurements to my local hardware store and had them cut a piece of plexiglass to the size. Then I took the stick on ruler tape that comes in a roll and and put a piece of that down the middle starting at the beginning of a one inch mark so that it would be accurate. I did this because I didn't find the ruler at a price I wanted to spend. It cost me less than $4 to make.

    I went back and researched it again. I got the measurements here from someone called Magpie who posted it in answer to someone else's question I guess. I got it through googling. Anyway, it is:

    22.5 inches long. 1 inch wide at one end and 4.78 wide at the other end. This includes the 1/4 inch seam allowance.

    I am going to try to attach a pic of the markings so that you can see what is on the original ruler in addition to the strip of tape like I put on mine.

    Not sure if either of these will appear but am giving it a try. If not, PM me with you email address and I will see what I can do that way.

    These are so cool. What is your method for constructing these?

    There is a pattern called spicey spiral that needs to be followed. The ruler is cut out of plexiglass at my local hardware store according to the dimensions I gave earlier. I put a piece of stick on tape measure down the center. I put that pic of the real ruler in there so that you could see the two X dimensions that were placed on it for where they should go. You will need to make these with some other method. I recommend using something that would scratch the line into the plexiglass.

    Some people have made the ruler by using heavy paper and making a circle. They have folded it into 8 pie shaped pieces. One piece would be the wedge. I believe that way it might be a 9 degree wedge. I didn't like the idea that the paper would be so bendable.

    I think yours are great! I love that pattern. I bought it awhile back & just got the ruler a couple weeks ago so now I need to get busy.

    I just bought this pattern and the fabric at a great little shop in Kissimmee FL. Planned to use a coupon to get the ruler at Joanns. So which is better the 9 or 10 inch? My pattern calls for the 9.

    Now I'm intrigued are you using the wedge ruler and making up your own pattern or using one you bought or found? I have the table runner pattern a d I can see where it could make an awesome tree skirt! Please let us all know.
