Creative Grids rulers are made in the USA and have become the gold standard of rulers to quilters across the globe. Many of the over 130 quilting rulers were designed by legendary names in the quilting industry. Exclusive to Creative Grids rulers is their embedded grip technology, which smoothly glides over fabric until you apply downward pressure. It then securely holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts! Easy-to-read black and white markings are printed on each ruler, which show on both dark AND light fabrics.
