    Quilting rulers

    I wanted to share these rulers for quilting. Does anyone on the forum have these? Comments would be appreciated.

    I do a lot of ruler work on my Sweet 16, more than FMQ. While I have many (ok, way too many) HQ rulers, I found these interesting and look easy to use.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    I don't have either one of theses but thanks for the links to the videos. I have tried some ruler work with my Juki sit down and it has not been too successful. I have a ruler with 3 different shapes, straight, curved and what appears to be a clamshell. It is way more difficult than it looks on film. I guess I need to practice lots more.

      The puzzle piece is kinds neat. I like that it is an off color for easy visibility when it is not in use laying on the quilt on the longarm. I do not like there is really not a meaty place to palm the ruler. The straight ruler is clear, and I am thinking I will go color when I purchase, even if that means putting highlighter ruler tape on it to SEE it. Thanks for sharing!

        I'm a little afraid of the round puzzle ruler. As she used it, it seems to me that I could see the joints move a bit. Like Claire, I haven't had a lot of luck ruler quilting on my Tiara sit down. In the video she is using a Long Arm, and does not have to move the quilt, whereas with the sit down we have to move the quilt and hold the ruler steady on it. I think I might have difficulty getting a nice round design. I do like the straight one with the angles. It seems to me it would be easier to move the quilt along with the ruler. Thanks for sharing the links, Suzanne.
