Just we ALL have been waiting for…


New Rulers!!!We are on our way to Kansas City for Quilt Market and My new rulers have arrived…see the video  below for all the details!  Free gift with purchases also!  I now have a complete set…3″x7″, 6″x6″, 5″x15″, 15″x15″ & 8″x24″Itty Bitty Eights XL Rulers.L

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!


If you purchase both rulers you will get this nifty gadget to store your essentials at your machine!!!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!
