    Non-slip Ruler Aid

    Saw this idea in a BHG Quilt magazine and tried it. Worked great. I cut heart shapes from a thin piece of rubber shelf liner that I had on hand. Laid the shapes on my fabric to the left of the ruler where I was going to cut then put the ruler on top. It kept the ruler from slipping. Moved them along as I went. Need to experiment more but liked the first try! Just thought I would share. Any one else try this before?

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
    Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

    Thanks for the reminder, just cut a piece and am now hoping my cushion will stay put.
