Hi Stephanie! I loved your review of the SNS ruler. I told Caroll I was wondering about it as I have a whole drawer of rulers that I know not how to use! LOL. I think I'll hold off on it as it does seem like there is a fair amount of waste. I actually don't mind making SNS blocks the old-fashioned way. I sometimes wonder if we really need all these rivulets on the market these days, and if it isn't just better to work the blocks like we were taught. Still not sure because like I said, I have a whole drawer of them that aren't being used !!

Love your tennis shoes. I wear similar ones myself :-)

Have a great week and thanks again for the review.

If you could see the demonstration in person, it makes more sense. And, there are other things you can do with the ruler that I have found quick to use. The flying geese, half square triangles, and the star points. I sew the scraps together and make smaller half square triangles so it's not wasted. Once you see how fast it is to make these other options, it's a time saver and everything comes out very nice in the end.

I wondered about that SNS ruler. I've never seen one, but have heard of it. I have neither seen nor heard of that half-square triangle ruler. I'll keep my eyes peeled for that one.

We awoke to snow here Sunday morning. It snowed until about noon, then the sun came out and it warmed up. It is windy here today. That is my main complaint about Spring weather here, the wind. We may get snow middle of the week and it will be colder.

Great review! You said in such a nice way what I was thinking! I'm going to link to this post when I post my pictures of what you did. I haven't used the other ruler yet, but it looked like a great one. You know I need all the help I can get with this piecing thing. It snowed up here on Sunday! And was about 60 deg. here today, but rainy. Will spring ever come?

I have this ruler but have never used it! I saw the demonstration when I bought it and it does look easy. Love all the blocks you made! Your shoes are too cute :)
Hugs,

Great discussion on the rulers. I own he SNS ruler after taking the class several years ago. I have to admit that I don't think I've used it since, which is silly. I've actually forgotten how!

1. You are friends with Victoria Wolfe.... who just won Best of Show at Quilt Con... is it because you are a Modern Guild president now?
2. love your shoes=)
3. Love how you don't waste.
4. Don't love that it may be another year before I see you.

Thanks for the great reviews Mama Pea! That hst ruler looks wonderful -- much easier than trimming them in their square format. The other ruler looks interesting too, although I'm too ocd to be able to handle all that waste!

Thanks for the reviews Stephanie! Have you tried any of the half square triangle dies on your Go! cutter? I haven't yet but was looking at them the other day, I may have to give it try.
