Default How do you store your quilting rulers?

I currently store my rulers inside a cabinet my husband made for me. He put two nails (one high, one low) on one side of the inside of the cabinet. Now that I have more rulers, I am finding this burdensome as the ruler I want is always the one furthest in. Plus I now have too many. Looking for creative ways people store their rulers.

I have a wooden tray with grooves in it that I purchased at a quilt show that a lot of them fit in and the rest are on hooks on the wall. Some I keep in small fabric purses if they are a group and they stay with the book that goes with them

I have used one of these racks for rulers. It fits right on the desk.


I also have one of these on the back of the door. Mine has smaller peg board and the rulers hang on binder clips from hooks.

I hang mine on S-hooks on my closet shelves in front of my batting scraps/fabric. They are easy to slide around if I need to get to something behind them. I can fit 2-3 rulers per hook.

​You might see if a belt closet circle will work for you. You can just slide the ruler you want off the circle.

When I am through using them for a quilt, I store mine under a bedroom dresser. Crazy huh?

I just showed this ruler holder. I bought two from Clyde’s Workshop online. They come ready to hang on the wall, with a cubby hole with a door and places to hang scissors and rotary cutters besides your rulers. Holds many rulers!

My ruler holder is an "in and out" mail metal one and also one similar to Rhonda's that is plastic I had on hand and never use anymore. I use a deep fabric drawer for smaller ones and specialty templets that fits into a cubby hole unit.

If I bought a ruler to make a pattern I keep that ruler with the book or pattern. The rest I had on a 4 x 8 peg board. I'm moving so right now all of them are in bins.
