Default Fess Up! What Ruler Did You Buy?

...that you haven't used yet in your quilting journey? Come on and share with us!

I have to say for me it was the "add 3/8" ruler. It was still in the package hanging out with others on the ruler rack. I wanted to mark a 3/8 inch seam allowance on a crib sheet and this one is perfect. So simple and easy! The ruler is now on the sewing table playground.

The other ruler waiting patiently is the CG 60 degree diamond. Had to have it after watching a tutorial. It's calling me too.

So do you have rulers waiting to come out and play? Please tell!

I haven't used the Wonder Curve ruler or the Curvy Log Cabin ruler yet. I have them out so I won't forget. One ruler I bought and thought I'd never use was the CC 7/8 ruler. All the measurements are in increments of 7/8. It has been a time saver when cutting for hsts.

I have both of those and enjoy using them, although I haven’t used the wave part of the scalloped template. What I have not used in the many years I’ve had it is the glorified nine patch template....Soon!

Oh, I have a bucket of rulers. Many haven't been used. That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy having them and looking at them.

I did this one with Eleanor Burns ruler for borders. I think i've only done one other but hope to make another one soon. I cleaned out my rulers recently so they are now only simple ones.
