I have several rulers that I use on a very regular basis. One of the rulers is the Shape Cut Pro by June Taylor which is a very large 2.5 inch strip cutter. It is 20 inches by 23 inches and comes in very handy if you are cutting a lot of pieces that are 2.5 inches. On the quilt that I am currently working on, I needed a bunch (this is a technical term) of 2.5 inch squares. I used this ruler to cut 8 strips at a time. After getting these strips cut, I turned the strips around and used the ruler to cut the strips into squares. I stacked 2 to three strips on top of each other and made quick work out of cutting those squares.
A second ruler I use is the Shape Cut Slotted Ruler by June Taylor. This ruler also lets you make quick work of cutting multiple strips of different sizes. I used this ruler for cutting strips of a different size for my quilt. You have to be careful when using these rulers, just like with others, because they will slip easily due to the size of the ruler.
I also use an Omnigrip ruler that is 8.5 inches by 24 inches. This ruler is great for cutting wide pieces that are more than 6 inches wide. I have a 6 inch ruler that I used all of the time until I got the 8.5 inch ruler. I liked it so much that I quit using the 6 inch ruler and started using the 8.5 inch ruler all of the time. I think it is much easier to see the lines on the neon colored ruler for me.
I am always interested in different rulers. What type of ruler do you use? How do you like it?
I hope you have a great evening! I am going to go sew!
