Fit To Be Square is my go-to ruler. However, I haven't used the Bias Square ruler, so can't give you a comparison. 'Penny Pincher' looks like a great project to start the New Year!

I use the bias square ruler. The Fit To Be Square looks interesting but I think I'd need a tutorial in how to use it. It looks a little complicated.

I only have the Bias Square ruler and it works for me. Cute Pattern and I love the fabric. I finished a UFO yesterday. YAHOO! Cross it off on the list.



I use a Deb Tucker Studio 180 ruler. I think it is the Square Squared
Ruler. Great results.


My favorite ruler(s) are by Eleanor Burns and are for flying geese. Ease and simplicity-that's what I look for.


I have a Bias Square ruler but I honestly never use it. I'm always using my Omnigrip 8.5" x 12" ruler and I love that I can use it for almost all blocks.
The pattern looks great but 160 blocks? I'm glad that I just finished my 12 log cabin blocks for a swap (they finish at 20.5" square and man that's big).

I don't have a square in a square ruler, Nicole. This is a great quilt and fabric!
I decided on 6 books, btw. Thanks for all your recommendations.

I like the simplicity of this project. The block has pleasing structure that complements the fabric. The fact that you have two rulers to choose from may be helpful if one is easier to see on some of the darkest pieces.

I love making square in a square blocks. This is going to be a good looking quilt!


What is the name of the fat quarter bundle? It is very pretty.
