    Guidelines Rulers VS. Upgrade Kit

    Guidelines Ruler comes with Grip Strips & Fabric Guides built-in

    Quilt Ruler Upgrade Kit lets you add Grip Strips & Guides to 12" & 24" rulers of any brand

    Either way, you’ll cut much faster & more accurately with no fatigue.

    If you travel a lot or have chipped or broken regular acrylic rulers before, we recommend connectable, unbreakable Guidelines Rulers with a removable Finger Guard.

     Connect two rulers end-to-end, side-by-side, or as a corner square

    If you have 12” & 24” regular rulers that you love to use, the Quilt Ruler Upgrade Kit may be a better choice for you. The kit works with any standard 1/8" thick acrylic rulers.

    Guidelines Rulers travel well

    You can take two 6”x12” Guidelines Rulers and a Connector that will fit anywhere and connect them to make a 6”x24”, 12” square or corner square when needed.

    Taken apart, they will fit in a small bag or even in the case with your sewing machine if you go to quilting retreats. They will also easily fit in your carry-on luggage on a flight.

    They do the same thing but they are different.

    Because Guidelines Rulers are made of virtually unbreakable polycarbonate they have built-in versions rather than the add-on versions in the Upgrade Kit.

    Polycarbonate is 25 times stronger than acrylic. This lets us put holes and slots in the Guidelines Ruler that you would never put in an acrylic ruler because acrylic is much easier to chip or break.

    The Fabric Guides in Guidelines Rulers come already attached through slots that you can slide them back and forth in. Once you slide them to the measurement you want, you can lock them in place.

    If you put slots in the acylic most other rulers are made of, it would make them too weak around the slots and be even easier to break.

    Another advantage is that the measurement lines on Guidelines Rulers are raised and the Fabric Guides lock onto them ensuring accurate alignment.

    That's why you don't need the Guide Lock Strips that come with the Upgrade Kit to keep the 24" guide from shifting on regular acrylic rulers.
