This 1/4″ thick acrylic ruler is made of cast, compressed light emitting acrylic. It is a translucent pale, pale green that reads as clear from above, but glows a beautiful aquamarine from the edges if viewed at an angle. Measuring 6″ x 3″, it is just the right size for custom block work. The stitch in the ditch edge features alignment tabs for perfect, stress free stitch in the ditch. Simply put the edge of the tabs against the seam of the piecing and have perfect stitches in the ditch every time. Next is an edge that features a wide concave curve, which exactly matches that of Lavender Lines 1, ideal for 6″ block piecing. A deeper 3″ curve allows for lots of creativity on one end, and the other end is a triangle cut out that will sew perfect 1″ half triangles when placed on a seam. All edges feature finely inscribed 1/8″ lines for your choice of 1/8″, 1/4″, or, my favorite, 3/8″ echo line work or curved cross hatching, all in one place.
This ruler is getting a fresh new look with re-designed short sides in the coming weeks and debuting with a new name…Lilac Lines.
