Never again will you have to worry about your rulers slipping as you guide your quilt and ruler through your machine. The finger grip holds enhance your ease of placement and movement.

These rulers are designed for both left- and right-handed quilters, with markings that can be read both ways. The ¼” vertical lines along the sides are ideal for straight line quilting, and the 45° and 60° angle lines open more creative possibilities than ever before!
