The right tools can make any job a lot easier to complete! I've tried out many different types of rulers and in the end my favorite is Creative Grids! Why? The plastic is clear so I can easily see my fabric. Creative Grids lines are black and white so they are easy to see and aren't hard on my eyes (the yellow lines drove me crazy!). They come in half increments which I use all the time and they have great grips on the back of them!
