I cut out over 200 2½" squares today using your ruler. It took me 2 hours. If I had done it with a regular ruler, I’d still have some to cut tomorrow. This is the first time I have used the ruler and I am amazed.

I seem to write about this every week, but I will continue to tell everyone because it is so great. It is called a Prep Tool. It gives you a scant 1/4" seam. ... It is good for more than a scant 1/4" seam. They also sell Seam Guides that stick on your sewing machine. They leave no sticky residue. They are inexpensive. I love this tool! I have used it on all of my sewing machines and have the Seam Guides on all my sewing machines. I have scant 1/4" seams every time. I use 2 seam guides in a row. One behind the other. Try the prep tool. You will love it!!

I’m very excited about all the info I read on your website, and I’m looking forward to actually trying these out. A light bulb went off in my head – So THAT’s why I have so much trouble with the math when designing my quilts! Thanks so much!!!

"My friend, Judy of Endeavour Hills, Australia ordered your kit and she demonstrated it to me. I love it and have just ordered from your very well set up site. Love the little animations. Your product is marvelous! Wish I had known about it ages ago."
I have received my Guidelines Kit and am thrilled with the accuracy I can achieve with these wonderful rulers. And I save so much time in my fabric cutting, so can get onto the sewing very quickly. I also love the Prep-Tool that allows me to trim triangles, what a great idea. It makes lining up the triangles much more accurate. And now I see that you have seam guides for the sewing machine – I wish I had noticed them when I placed my order. I will just have to do another order! Thank you for your excellent service – my order arrived in Australia just a week after I placed my order."

A friend of mine asked me to help
her cut some strips for a class we were taking
and there were quite a few to be cut. She
had an AccuCut® and it took me quit a while.
I was really tired by the time I got home,
but decided to cut mine out with my new Guidelines ruler. It took me only half
the time to cut the same strips for the
class and it didn't tire me out nearly
as much. I have since used my Guidelines4Quilting's
system several times and I just love it.

This is the second time I have written to comment on how much I enjoy your self-aligning rulers. For the past few days, I have been cutting small scraps into squares. I set each guide differently, thus I had four measurements: 1 1/2”, 2”, 2 1/2” and 3”. It was so easy just to measure the scrap for the largest possible square, and then cut--with no slipping!. I now have hundreds of squares ready for scrap quilts. Thank you again for creating these rulers!

I received one of your Prep-Tools as a gift and wasn't sure exactly how to use it. Fortunately I viewed your website as part of the April Shop Hop and saw your instructional Flash Animations on how to use this tool.
Kudos to you for excellent and easy to understand directions on all your tools. I will be visiting and purchasing more items from you soon based on this visit. Keep up the great work! Thank you.

I just enjoy using the Triangle Additions for regular rulers that I purchased a while back and am looking forward to adding this Guidelines Ruler set to them. I make 'Quilts of Valor' and 'Quilts for Kids' and these make cutting and piecing so easy.

I found a nifty item so I won't cut myself with my rotary cutter
I found these acrylic "Finger Guards"strip guards at Guidelines4quilting the other day and I just got them in the mail today. They have suction cups on the bottom of them and two of them fit my long ruler. They are about 1/2-1" tall and stand straight (vertical) up right against your ruler so your rotary cutter can't jump off the mat and onto your ruler.
Um, I can't think of the word for them, senior moment right now, Read more.
"..I'm embarrassed to
admit that I've been quilting for fifteen
years and have had trouble with flying geese the whole time, cutting off points when sewing
the triangles together. You'd never believe
I was a math major in college and have such
trouble with the math of triangles in quilting!
No more! I experimented with the Guidelines
and now I'll tackle more half-square and
even quarter-square projects without worry!
Thank you for inventing this so-easy-to-use
Thank you for the ruler. I just finished a quilt top. I tried it out and I have to say . . . W-O-W!!! I will NEVER use another ruler again!!!! This is amazing! I absolutely love it. My cuts are much more accurate as the ruler doesn't slip at all and I can cut out pieces so much faster with the marker in place. This is the coolest invention ever. I can't believe I waited so long to try it. What was I thinking!
This (order) is a gift for my daughter since
I have the full set of everything. They are
the greatest thing since grated cheese. Thank
You so very much.

I am traveling across country. I already
use the 24"
package and just love it.
It and my 1/4" paper piecing ruler are
just about the only ones I use. I have replaced
almost all my rulers with

I have to tell you the Prep-Tool is one of
the best tools I’ve ever used in quilting.
I have designed a quilt with a pieced border.
Trimming the triangles with
this tool made putting those blocks together
so simple. I was very
impressed! I am including it in the instructions
under Other Items. When I
do the kits, it will be included in each one.
I also pieced some diamonds into Tumbling
Blocks. They went together so
nicely. I have some sewn up to show people
how easy it is to make that
block. I decided to use some of the fabric
I have on hand to make a Tumbling
Block quilt. I have enough fabric to make kits
for that and will include the
Prep Tool in those as well.

I love my Quilt Ruler Connector so much that I ordered 5 more to share with my friends at a Christmas party.

Ordered my Finger Guards on Thursday, got a notice it had been shipped that day, received it on Saturday!!! What great service!! Loved it, used yesterday and did not feel the need to take the extra couple of seconds to make sure my fingers were out of harm’s way. Thanks for providing such a good and affordable tool. I have recommended this to people on two message boards that I frequent.

I bought your Finger Guards and I love them! They are so nimble and sturdy. I can finally let the kids cut their own fabric.

I bought your ruler at the International Quilt Festival in Houston two years ago, and I use it all the time. I just wanted you to know how much I love my ruler and that I just took it to class with me, and everyone fell in love with it. Thanks for making my job easier.
Leni - Santa Ana, CA
I have to say I love your ruler. I teach sewing at All Brands, Moores and Sew Vac and I will be showing it. It is the best!!!!!!
