Where does the time go? How do the minutes, no the hours slip by so quickly. Doesn't it seem like we should have MORE hours in the day to work our craft??
One thing I did recently was try out my new ruler The Cutting Edge. This ruler sharpens my rotary blade as it cuts my fabric.
I could actually tell the difference after the very first cut. I was able to cut four layers of fabric with ease and no tags.
I found there were some good points and some not so good. First, like I mentioned, the rotary seemed to cut with new life. Like it was a fresh blade. Which is a wonderful thing, as the blades can be quite costly.
The ruler is well marked, however, I had a little bit of difficulty with the frosted background. Cutting into the light fabric was not a problem.
I could see lines and numbers clearly.
But when I needed to cut into darker fabric, I found the frosting on the plexi to be difficult to see the squaring up lines.
Is it a good ruler? Yes. Could the manufacturer make any improvement? I think yes. If there is some way to make the plexi clear I think it would be a much better tool. Would I buy it again? YES! I love the idea of sharpening my rotary blade as I cut my fabric.
Have you tried these rulers? I bought a 6 1/2 x 18 1/2 as this was a size I did not already own. Most of my rulers are only 5 or 6", so the new one gives me a little more width to work with. And I like the 18 1/2", as it is not too long, and not too short. A good all round size for many different projects.
Let me know if you have tried these rulers, and tell me what you think about them.
And in the meantime........ Happy Quilting.
