This is not an absolutely necessary ruler to own, but it is certainly a nice ruler for serious quilters. I use it for squaring off large blocks and for cutting wide pieces of fabric. I did a price comparison, and found the best price on Overstock.
I am so happy to have this Quilter's Ruler - it is a wonderful addition to my quilting tools. BUT the shipping was horrible. It was packaged great and the delivery time was estimated to be on the 14th. It finally arrived a week later. I was so disappointed but have survived and now have it.
I wish I had purchased this ruler years ago. It made squaring blocks really easy, and is also great for cutting strips with a rotary cutter. The non-slip grip feature really makes a difference, as it doesn't shift under your hand while you're cutting. I would recommend this to everyone who quilts. It has already paid for itself in my time alone, and the Overstock price was more than $8 less than I could find it anywhere else.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Good representation
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Excellent
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Heavy acrylic, accurate markings
This was a big disappointment. The greenish shading on the gridlines makes it difficult to accurately see the edge of the fabric. I bought this for a retreat project and found it to be unusable for this. It was a waste of money. It would be better to have clearish shadings.
