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.

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

Guide Lock Strips come with permanent adhesive.

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.
  • Slide one hook onto one end of your ruler.
  • Stretch the Guide and slide the other hook straight onto the other end of the ruler.
  • Once attached, you can slide the Guide to the measurement line you want.

Grip Strips and Fabric Guides are the same thickness,
so everything stays perfectly level.

"I bought your quilt guide set from the new quilt shop here in Lewistown, MT and I've never been happier with a tool! I'm getting on in years(74) and my sight isn't what it was but the guides made cutting my last quilt blocks so much easier!!! Wish I'd had them a lot sooner in my sewing life. Thank you for the best quilting tool I've ever owned!"
