I have been wanting to buy a new ruler for a while now. I have the EZ Jelly Roll Ruler that I LOVE, but it doesn’t work for everything. For one it doesn’t have the 1/8'” marks. I have several other rulers that I bought when I first decided to quilt, and really didn’t know the differences between different brands and such.
Yesterday while cutting my LC for my Pinwheel project I made 2 cutting mistakes on one fabric and made another mistake on a different fabric (not good when you only have 10” to work with…Luckily I had the same fabric in a 5” square to fall back on…Anyway, that was my BREAKING POINT! I just can’t see the markings on my old rulers. I am sure they are perfectly good rulers, but for me the ORANGE markings just DO NOT cut it!
Today I marched myself to Joann’s and bout myself the SIMPLI-EZ Ruler 6.5 x 12.5 I LOVE this thing. The marks are black and red (non of that orange crap I can’t see) and to top it off it actually has the marking written out for you :) NOW that is SMART!!! It is also a Lefty/Righty so you can turn it and flip it and still see what you are doing :)
I am going to be replacing ALL my rulers with the Simpli-EZ rulers and soon :)
