Rulers. Quilting Rulers. You know you have a lot of quilting rulers! Come learn some great ways and how to store quilting rulers.

I am finding myself with more rulers than ever right now!  There are the standard ones and recently there has been a surge of specialty rulers.  Rulers that help you square up your blocks, make dresden plates, hexagons…you name it there is a ruler for it!

This means that they get in the way, fill up a drawer, end up on the bottom of some random fabric pile and get lost or miss placed.  Can you relate?!

Let’s figure out how to store quilting rulers so we can start using them, remembering we have them and NOT buy a duplicate of them! (you know what I’m talking about)

Because rulers are different sizes and shapes for that matter finding a solution for storage can be tricky.  I have seen them hung by clips, in a crate, or even in a plate hanger on the walls.

Think about using space that you don’t need as well- behind doors, on the sides of counters – peg boards!  maybe hanging on the wall under a shelf.  They don’t have to be piled up on your counter taking up space you need for cutting.

I have this fancy little wood quilting ruler rack.
