Here is there official lingo…

This 15’x15″  Itty Bitty Eights Square Ruler is designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings features easy to read 1/8 inch markings. The black and white dashed eighth inch markings show on both light and dark fabrics. The dashed 1 inch grid lines ensure accuracy when cutting pieces for miniature quilts. Refer to the black diamonds when cutting 1/8 inch strips; the white diamonds when cutting 1/4 inch increments. Forty-five degree angles are marked from corner to corner, perfect for squaring up blocks.

The 8 inch by 24 inch Itty Bitty Eights Rectangle Ruler designed by Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings features easy to read 1/8 inch markings. The black and white dashed eighth inch markings show on both light and dark fabrics. The dashed 1 inch grid lines ensure accuracy when cutting pieces for miniature quilts. Refer to the black diamonds when cutting 1/8″ units; the white diamonds when cutting 1/4″” inch units. The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, our exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts!

  5. Have all of your other rulers- they’re great!! Can’t wait to round out the collection- thanks for making my quilting life easier

  6. These rulers look awesome! Love the fact that they will grip the fabric and help not to slide!! Those are my preferred rulers now that i am having a harder time cutting my fabric as i age! I also love the 1/8th markings, so very helpful! Thanks for a chance to win!

  7. These new rulers look awesome! Will order soon! Love the “gadget” also. Thanks Lisa!

  8. Wow those look easy to read . Would love to have them. Are they really no slip….. my fingers would appreciate that!

  9. SO HAPPY to see a larger square size of the itty bitty eighths ruler!!!! I use my 6×6 every day. They are the bomb and I don’t know how tiny piecers live without them!!!

  10. I have the original 1/8 inch rulers you recently had made. Would love these to expand the possibilities! I love the smaller rulers I have.

  11. I keep sahying I have all the rulers I need, but I must admit, I REALLY DO need these rulers, I like the way you’ve marked them. Thanks for such thoughtful design.

  12. These are great rulers !! I have the 6×6 and would love another to go with it…so accurate; and the non slip feature is great also.

  14. A ruler with the ability to slide and then grip as needed would up my game immensely! 🤞🏻

  15. Awesome rulers! Really like the 1/8 inch markings for the miniatures as well as the 45 degree lines. Non slip is the icing on the cake. Really like clean,easy to read rulers.

  17. Some of my friends have these rulers and love them. Thank you for the chance to win one. Hugs,

  18. I have your 2 smaller itty bitty eighths rulers and LOVE them! Especially the 6” square, it’s always on y cutting table and if it isn’t I’m looking for it. The eighth inch markings are wonderful! Would love the 8×24 size.

  19. WOW, I really LOVE your new website! So easy to navigate. I have your smaller Itty Bitty ruler and would love to have these two new rulers. My friends think I’m silly but I love working with small pieces. Enjoy Kansas City. Don’t work too hard!

  26. I love these rulers. Never knew how easy it could be to have the 1/8 inch markings to cut stems for appliqué. Thx Lisa, Barb

  27. I have the small rulers you designed and just love them. The 1/8 markings are so nice to have when cutting vines. Can’t wait to get the large ones.

  28. I love rulers. They make life and cutting easier but I also need a container or something to hold all the rulers in one place that I’m acquiring.

  29. Oh, wow, Lisa–I am so excited! I have two each of the first two, and then I got the third one a year ago (for Mother’s Day, actually). These are my dream rulers come to life!!

  30. I love the detail in these rulers and have slowly been switching over to Creative Grid rulers. Love these new sizes.

  31. Not only do I love these rulers, but I love that they’re Itty Bitty rulers. Creative Grid rulers rock! I’m super excited to add these to my collection.

  32. Wow, those are great new sizes. The 15″ x 15″ especially. Loved the video! K-

  34. I use the 5 x 15 inch for cutting. Love it. And always have the 3 x 7 on the table too. Wouldn’t mind adding more, I think the 8 x 24 could easily become a favorite!

  35. I’m so happy you have new rulers,. With a quilt designing them i know they will be great.

  36. Your 5” x 15” ruler along with the 6” square ruler are the rulers I use the most! I love having 1/8” markers on the rulers. I use that 1/8” mark so often I can’t imagine using a ruler without it! The 8” x 24” is a fantastic size sometimes you need a little longer ruler but still want the 1/8” marking. I’ve been looking for a larger square ruler. One more thing your rulers are easy to read!

  37. Your rulers look very easy to read. I’m looking to replace many of my Omnigrid rulers in favor of easier to read rulers. Good luck at market!

  38. Would love to try these. I am looking for some easier to read rulers, also need to replace some.

  39. Lovely new rulers. But what an interesting gadget to use on your machine. Never seen anything like that before.

  40. Looks like I need some new rulers!!! I love my itty bitty rulers and Creative Grid is the BEST!

  41. The right rulers make a big difference in how a project turns out. Loving the larger sizes.

  42. You can never have enough rulers! These look awesome and would be a great addition to my collection!

  43. Do they work well for left handed quilters? I know this is a question, but some lefty may have tried it and it would be great to know.

  44. I have several of your rulers and I absolutely love them. They are always my go to rulers for all my projects. Enjoy your time at Quilt Market.

  45. Hi Lisa, Always love your rulers, have to ck out your video… I appreciate these too since I am a visual person. Hope all is well with you and yours. Hugs, Chris

  46. Some of my rulers are hard to read and I have to place those gripper dots underneath to keep them in place. I am glad you came up with some rulers that are easy to read and stay in place. A big plus for us quilters who like things cut perfectly!!

  47. Love your other rulers so I’m sure these are great, too. Can’t wait to try them out!

  48. I have a lot of rulers but like rulers that you can see the markings better. Some the lines are so solid you can’t be sure you are cutting accurate. Love your ideas

  49. Love Lisa’s rulers. Hoping the latest ones will be in the Primitive Gatherings booth at the Madison Expo in September.

  50. Would be ever so helpful to have those 1/8” marks a bit more noticeable on a ruler. And grippy too! Thanks for the chance to get in on the fun.

  51. Love the rulers with the 1/8″ markings. Your ruler has saved me many a time.

  52. Love, love love your rulers, both the itty bitty’s and the stems and would love to win the new sizes!

  53. I have one of your smaller rulers, and find it very helpful for accuracy. Would love to win the larger sizes. Thank you.

  54. Ever since the first 1/8 inch Itty Bitty rulers came out, I’ve thought they were perfect. I have the smallest, it’s wonderful for so many reasons it’s used constantly. In the last year I’ve been making hexies, more than any other type of sewing, your ruler has been indispensable.

  55. These would be awesome. I have 2 of your smaller ones and love them for the tiny blocks I love to make!

  56. Weren’t your other ones the first ones that had the 1/8th marks. I was like whoah where have these been all along. And now to have a SQUARE with them. Thanks!!!!! How can you pass THAT up? 😎

  57. I would love to win a 15 x15 square as I lost my 12×12 square. Thanks for a chance to win.

  58. I am so excited that you have 2 more sizes for these. I have the other itty bitty rulers and absolutely love, love, love them

  59. Would love to win your rulers. New to quilting and having made a small quilt for my wall, I plan to begin a larger on for my bed. Any help would be appreciated.

  60. I really love your rulers! They are my favorite ones to use! I am soo excited and happy you now have more sizes. I need these. When your rulers first came out, I told a quilt shop owner about how much I loved them and they started carrying them for their customers. I let my friends use mine when they come to sew and anyone that didn’t have them now do. Any one who doesn’t have these, try them and you will fall in love with them. Have a wonderful day!

  61. Rulers with those clear 1/8″ markings are great. Will be so great for tiny projects.

  62. Where did get those wonderful decals on the sewing machine? Love them and the new rulers!

  63. You are the Ruler of quilt design. 😁 thought that was cute. But I ordered a set of these new ones. Hope if I win, I wont be charged for these fabulous rulers!

  64. These rulers are just what I need! My “old” set from when I started quilting many years ago are starting to need to be updated!

  65. Love the 5″ x 15″ size!! Perfect!! So many times 12″ is too short and 24″ is too long…..so excited about 15″ size!! =:)

  66. I don’t know how I ever cut anything out without my Itty Bitty rulers! Makes my work SO accurate. Thanks for creating these larger ones!

  67. I love your smaller rulers. I will have to put these new rulers on my wish list! What a fun gadget to put on the side of the machine! What is the name of the thread snip that is in your holder? Thanks a bunch for the chance to win!

    1. I, also, have your 15 x 15 that I bought for Twilight Garden, but haven’t had a chance to use it!! 🙂

  68. I have the 3 by 7 inch ruler and use it all the time since I love to make small quilts. Would love to get some of the other sizes too.
