    Default Creative Grids Stripology Ruler Review

    I received my Creative Grids Stripology Ruler today!! Purchased it thru Fat Quarter Shop when they had their big Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale (backordered).

    I love Creative Grids Rulers and have slowly been investing in them since I first started quilting a couple years ago. So i wanted this for my collection, and after using it and doing a side-by-side comparison, the Creative Grids Striopology (CGS) Ruler will definitely be replacing my June Taylor's Shape Cut PLUS (SC+). Here's why:

    1. The CGS Ruler is sturdier and thicker than the SC+ Ruler.
    2. The CGS Ruler has their no-slip gripper strip between EACH slot. None on the SC+.
    3. The CGS Ruler has 1/4" markings left to right and 1/2" markings top to bottom. The SC+ has only 1" lines top to bottom.
    4. Just like their other rulers, this CGS Ruler has both black and white ruler markings (for both light & dark fabric)
    5. Both rulers allow you to cut every 1/2", but the CGS Ruler is wider - 20" compared to 18" on the SC+.
    6. The CGS Ruler also has a 10" (Layer Cake) square.
    7. The CGS Ruler has markings for the more popular strip sizes (1 1/2" and 2 1/2"). Ask me why this makes me happy!!

    FYI - both rulers require you to fold your fabric twice salvage-to-salvage (or fold once with fat quarters).

    Hope this helps! I never thought I could fall in love with a ruler ... but I have!

    Good review! I'm pretty sure MM picked one up for me for Christmas and I'm dying to find out!!! This could speed up your cutting! Will come in handy for all that sashing for our quilt!

    Yep, I'm finishing up cutting all the sashings for our Kansas Troubles Quilt! Have you finished all your cutting?

    Nice review, thanks !

    Hurry up and get here Christmas...I've got one all wrapped up and sitting under the tree. Hmm, maybe I could unwrap it, play with it a while, wrap it back up and stick it back under the tree. Santa would never know, right? No, no, no...bad girl.
