Crosshatching tools ???

Recommended Posts

What Cross Hatching tools do you all like best - other than the QZ or Circle Lord. I've been looking at Linda R's and also the ones on Quilter's rule by Westalee. Any others out there that are easy to use?

I have Linda R's CH rulers and I absolutely love them!! I did this quilt with them. http://www.apqs.com/quiltboard/viewthread.php?tid=20443&page=1#pid245914 The CH rulers made it easy! No marking! Now it did take a while to do it! But it wasn't hard with those rulers! I would highly recomend them!! linda

I have the qz crosshatch boards...and still use Linda Rech's (Dennis') rulers more of the time! They are fabulous! :)

I have CL straight and curved crosshatch templates, Linda Rech's rulers and the Westerlee (SP?) system that Quilter's Rule carries.

Linda's are the best, in my opinion.

I like the CL but not having to work from the back of the machine and haven't justified the cost of the new front working system. Plus the fact that I have removed the top rail makes using it impractical for me.

I don't care for the Westerlee at all. It is very difficult to keep it steady.

Linda's sets are very easy to use and remain very stable while working with them.

I have a set of Linda Rech's crosshatch rules and they work great. And I've seen the Westalee ruler and thought it would be difficult to control and hold steady. I have acquired the Circle Lord and now have no need for the crosshatch rulers so if anyone is interessted in buying them I would sell them for $50 plus actual shipping cost. If interested, send a U2U.

Edited to show the rulers are now sold. Thanks, everyone that inquired about them.

A question for Linda Gibbons:

When doing such beautiful cross-hatching, what do you do around the applique? Do you start/stop at each design, or is there a 'secret' to not using so many start/stops? Your work is just gorgeous.

I love to cross-hatch, but hate the many interruptions around designs. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful.

Thanks.

I ordered a set of Linda's crosshatching rulers last night ! Also Myrna's pinched squares............wheeeee! So many toys.........:P With all the new toys and fabric/patterns I have been accumulating, I will be ready for a nasty, cold winter again.

More UPS deliveries.............the UPS guy came the other day and I got 2 packages -NEITHER had any quilting stuff. My husband is still in shock. :P

Well Linda in Oskaloosa, you provided the perfect excuse I needed to go ahead and order the cross hatch rulers -- the long nasty winter! It was soooooo bad last year, and who knows what this year will bring us. Maybe I NEED to order those r&s boards I've been eying also!

Thanks! I know my husband will understand now!
