Enhance Your Quilting with Special Notions
During the video course, I use a variety of tools to help me finish faster. The tools I list here are no exception.
I highly recommend these rulers for not only this project but many others as well!
– Master precision with the Stripology Ruler by Creative Grids.
– The 6.5” x 6.5” Ruler by Creative Grids is your go-to for accurate cutting.
– And for those smaller measurements, the 1” x 6” Ruler by Creative Grids.
