A Great Tip for Your Quilter’s Toolbox!

There are two ruler sizes that quilters reach for most often: 12 1/2″ square and 6″ or 6 1/2″ x 24″. While additional rulers are handy, you can do most of your standard cutting with either of those two sizes.

But what if you need to cut wide strips that neither ruler accommodates? Simply combine the two rulers to make the width you need.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
