    how the quilt ruler upgrade kit works

    Grip Strips also
    slip-proof your rulers:

    Three Steps to Upgrade Your Rulers:

    Step 1: Peel & Stick Grip Strips on Your 12" & 24" Rulers.

    Six strips are included in the Kit. Two for your 12" ruler and four for your 24" ruler.

    Peel crystal clear Grip Strips (11¾” long) off the brown backing paper.

    Perfect!

    Attach them as close as possible to the edges of your ruler.

    Attach on both edges, so your ruler won't tilt in one side.

    Don't skimp on them. When you leave a gap in between, it will cause ripples in your fabric.

    Step 2: Attach Guide Lock Strips on Your 24" Ruler.

    Step 2:

    Attach Guide Lock Strips Underneath Your 24" Ruler.

    Guide Lock Strips keep the long, 24” Fabric Guide, from shifting in the middle underneath your ruler no matter how much fabric you are lining up to.

    Note: You don't need them on your 12" ruler.

    Guide Lock Strips come with permanent adhesive.

    Get extra strips here if you have more than one 24" ruler or in the case your ruler breaks.

    Step 3: Clip the Fabric Guides onto Your 12" & 24" Rulers.

    Important: Keep the Fabric Guides Straight.

    The Fabric Guides are made of tough polypropylene, but they have to be very thin to fit under your ruler. Be sure not to bend them when you slide them on or slide them off.

    • Slide one hook onto one end of your ruler.

    to fit under your ruler. Be sure not to bend them when you slide them on or slide them off.

    Note: The hooks on the ends of the Fabric Guides will be sliding over the markings on the ends of your ruler, so you may want to put strips of tape right along both edges underneath your rulers to protect the markings there as well.

    Also some quilt rulers such as Fiskars' are slightly thinner than standard rulers that are ⅛" thick, so the Fabric Guides may stay put better if you put tape on both short ends.
