Sue’s Harmonic Ruler Set

What ingenious design would provide you with five different circle sizes? This one! Sue’s Harmonic 2-in-1 ruler easily provides large-scale circles, and Sue’s Harmonic 3-in-1 provides three medium-scale circles—all tucked onto ruler sizes that are easy to manipulate, even when throat space is limited.

Designed with Sue’s Fill Harmonic Sampler pattern in mind (link), this ruler set has so many built-in features that you will want to reach for them again and again! Set of two rulers $51.00 USD (+tax)

Curve-A-Linear® Straight Rulers

Sue’s unique design doubles the function of these handy, acrylic rulers. The curved handle is not only incredibly comfortable to hold, it can be used as a stitching guide, too – it’s like getting two rulers in one! Guidelines on the rulers can be used to align for both straight and 45º stitching, plus there are convenient 1/8th inch ruler increments along the straight edge. The low profile handles make it easy to use the straight edge of the rulers on most domestic machines, as well. Beautiful and functional, these rulers will make a great addition to any quilter’s collection.

Ruler Accessories

Ruler Spacers

These small acrylic discs are the same size as a hopping or ruler foot and can be used when drawing a design using a ruler. The three included spacers with center holes of varying sizes will allow you to use your marking tool of choice. You’ll wonder how you ever got along without them. $5.00 USD.

Slide Busters

Attach a few of these Slide Busters to the back of any acrylic quilting ruler and voilà – slip-sliding rulers are a thing of the past! Cut from a 3M product, our Slide Busters have just enough texture to “grip” the fabric safely and securely without damage. Make good ruler work even better with this 10-pack of 5/16″ Slide Busters. $5.00 USD.


Prevent your ruler from slipping and sliding with the Dritz Omnigrid Invisi-Grip Roll. This grip can be a handy tool while sewing as it keeps your ruler steady. The clear non-slip, removable material of this invisible grip roll does the trick. It is easy to use – just cut to the required size, peel off the carrier paper and apply to the underside of your rulers. Dimensions: 12.5 x 36 inches (W x H). $11.00 USD. 

Tip: Sue loves to adhere her Slide Busters onto strips of Invisi-Grip which allows her to reposition them to wherever they are needed. A thrifty use of both products!
