Handy ruler

While I was making my pieced blocks for The Aunts’ Quilt, I found this ruler to be very helpful!

20150112-132031.jpgIt’s a 6.5″ x 2.5″ from Victorian Textiles (order one through your LQS Code: VR6525) and very practical for marking the diagonal lines and then cutting them once stitched on the flying geese. I can see it being used for trimming lots of blocks. It’s a keeper!

    One can never have too many rulers! I was sewing yesterday and went from my 6.5″ square one to a 3.5″ X 9.5″ one to trim some blocks! They certainly make the job easier!

    That’s smaller than the 2 faves I have (6″x12 and 6″x14″). I will definitely have to check this one out!!!!! Thanks so much for this info!!!!!

    How nice to be able to actually use one of those numerous rulers/notions we collect. Believe I don’t have this one so will have to explore further.

  4. That sounds like a super useful size ruler. I do love those green/yellow rulers, I can see thru them more clearly than the regular ones.

    Oh my…..I don’t know why but we always need one more ruler….one more cutter….one more fabric….making patchwork is so cruel !! LOLOLOL !!

  6. I have a similar sized one, which is good for trimming blocks – I also use my 6″ square ruler a lot for cutting small pieces I have two of the fabrics in your photo, now I want the blue spotty one as well. Looking forward to tomorrow’s reports!!
