    Default Looking for good 6 x 24 inch ruler

    Does anybody have a 6 x 24 inch ruler with 1/8 inch marks on the long side, and what brand is it? I have that size ruler but am tired of trying to accurately put blue painters tape for 1/8 inch for cutting yardage. My ruler end is marked in 1/8ths but those marks are horizontal, I am looking for vertical lines. Thanks!

    I have a creative grids 8.5"x 24.5" ruler that has the 1/8" markers on it. I use it all the time!

    It has inch markers in the white dots, and1/2" markers in black.

    Yep. Fiskars from Wal-Mart.

    I have an Olfa frosted ruler that I love because the lines are very thin and there are no circles on it.

    Only Creative Grids rulers for me. IMO they're the best.

    I am slowly replacing my colored ones (various brands) with creative grid rulers, I did buy an olfa frosted one (6 x 24) and this is easy on the old eyes too!

    Joycelyn, I have a 6.5 X 24.5 inch Creative Grid ruler and really like it. It does have the 1/8" markings down the length of the ruler.

    I, too, am replacing my worn out rulers with Creative Grids.

    By the way, on my Fiskars 6x24 ruler, the lines are rubbing off and wearing away at the edges. I will never buy a Fiskars ruler again.

    Same here! My 6x24 was pitched way before I started quilting (school dance troupe - Oh the glitter fabric I sewn, lol) and I don't use it often enough to replace it. I bought the 6.5x12.5 and I love the heck out of it!

    Oh My! Scroll to the bottom and there's a link for a wishlist - it's a off file with all their rulers so you can keep track! I need this because I bought a 2nd 2.5x12.5 having completely spaced I already had one! Also, holy cow that's a lot of rulers and templates!!!
