Quilting Rulers That Measure Up

Like any household project, the proper measuring tools for quilting can mean the difference between a successful outcome and a total catastrophe. If you want your quilt to have a professional look with even block placement and clean, precise edges, make sure you start with the right quilting rulers from Fat Quarter Shop.

Using the proper fabric ruler provides accurate measurements and saves you time and energy. No one wants to spend more time using a seam ripper than is absolutely necessary.

Fat Quarter Shop has the quilter's rulers and measuring tools required for every sewing adventure. Whether you're cutting out large blocks, small blocks or geometric shapes, Fat Quarter Shop has a quilt ruler that handles the job quickly and easily.

Types of Rulers for Quilting

If you're just starting out, you may find that one quilt ruler will work just fine. If you are going only have one ruler, we recommend a 6” x 24” or 8” x 24” sized ruler.

More seasoned quilters may choose to keep it simple and use one or two types of quilting rulers or go all out and purchase several rulers that serve a variety of unique purposes. Let's go through some of the main types of rulers for quilting projects.

Quilting rulersQuilting rulers

Quilt Rulers for Cutting Strips

Use long quilt rulers that are 18" to 24" to cut narrow strips and borders. A long ruler is also handy for squaring a quilt edge before binding. To cut wide strips, opt for a ruler that's 6-1/2" x 12-1/2".

Basic Square Quilt Rulers

A square quilting ruler is always a great tool. Better yet, get a set of square acrylic quilt rulers. You'll be in good shape if your set includes the standard sizes that correspond to the common quilting block sizes.

Quilting Rulers for Trimming Edges

Advanced quilters like using a smaller ruler for trimming edges. The ideal size for this is a 3" x 7" fabric ruler.

Fabric Rulers for HSTs and QSTs

A half-square triangle (HST) and a quarter-square triangle (QST) are two basic units in quilting. There are many methods for making these triangles, but long-time quilters have discovered that using these dedicated fabric rulers makes the process a whole lot easier.

And Many More Quilt Rulers

Manufacturers like Creative Grids make quilt rulers for a wide range of specialized uses. For example, you can get measuring tools for certain types of quilts, like the Log Cabin quilt. While this kind of fabric ruler may not be practical for occasional quilters, it will undoubtedly come in handy if you do many different types of quilting projects.

Frequently Asked Questions About Quilting Rulers


With the many types of quilting rulers on the market, it's no wonder our quilters often have questions about them. Following are answers to some of these questions, but if you want to know more about a fabric ruler or any of the products we sell, please ask us.


How Do I Keep Quilters' Rulers From Slipping?

We have several non-slip quilting rulers to choose from. These rulers are designed to prevent movement as you're cutting fabric.


What Quilting Tools Will I Need Besides Fabric Rulers?

In addition to the usual notions required for any sewing project, there are some quilting tools that work alongside fabric rulers and are essential for the completion of your project:

  • Cutting Mat: A cutting mat protects the surface of your table from scratches and grooves.
  • Rotary Cutter: Rotary cutters are the best tool for cutting quilting fabric. They produce clean, precise, no-fuss cuts.
  • Marking Tools: Where you cut is as important as how you cut. Marking tools help to ensure the accuracy of cuts without ruining your fabric.

Do I Need a Quilt Ruler if I'm Using Precuts?

Quilting with precut fabric is a great time saver. The quilt blocks have already been cut to the proper size, so if you're stitching a patchwork quilt, you won't need a ruler for the blocks. However, you'll still need to cut strips for binding – and if you're doing an applique quilt, you'll need a quilt ruler to cut out the different shapes that add dimension.
