Do you have this ruler? What do you think of it?

I've been seeing it in blogs and it looks interesting to me. I'm curious to find out about it from someone who has it and has used it.

Thanks!

Not only have I seen it.....we are selling it at the viking sewing gallery were i work and i have already taught 4 classes on how to use it. There are 3 new patterns that were put out at the same time that you can make with it. Two quilts and some pillows. I am on my nook.....but tomorrow when im on the computer i will post some pics of the pillows we made in my class. I love this thing!

Here's a quick brief on a 4 hour quilt top made using the ruler ... what have you done Jill? After hearing Omma praise the ruler I want one...I love hexies especially if they are easy!

Oh no! What DID I start?!! I watched the second video this afternoon. I wondered if that ruler could really be that good?!!

Omma's got me wanting it for sure! Can't wait to see those pictures!

for some reason I hate multiple rulers like those. I do have Nancy's Notions Grandmother flower garden ruler though, well templates. plastic with slits where you mark sizes of tumblers or hexagons. I just used them both and made quilt tops.
I tend to like to mark and cut with scissors. no problem for me.
I just watched a video on this ruler, interesting. like the "jewel" cut but would need the patterns. nice though.

I watched part of the youtube video the other day and want to go back and see more. I need another ruler like a hole in the head, but it got me curious.

I agree with you Lisa, I don't need another ruler... but... that second video sure makes me want to purchase it! You can make so many shapes with it! So clever!

I was hoping that Joann's sold it, so I could use a coupon, but they don't appear to sell it.

Nancy's Notions, on the other hand, has it. AND, if you like the Lotus pattern, they have a combo for a pretty good deal.

I'm so tempted, but that would make me break my New Years Resolution...again!

I can't believe it but Amazon doesn't have it.

But ebay does for about the same price as Nancy's Notions. Guess the difference would be the shipping costs. ebay cost is $2.50 while Nancy's is $6.95.

It looks as if there are some patterns on ebay also.

It's an interesting ruler.

I ended up buying it at a LQS while I was at retreat! I also bought the Lotus pattern too. Haven't had time to work with it though.

I hope that the retreat was lots of fun Smile. Looking forward to seeing your pictures when you try out the ruler.

Just what I need . . . temptation to buy another tool. Guess that is part of the fun, right? I'll see how long my willpower holds up Cool.
