Product Description

Use the straight side of the Tumbler Double Strip Ruler to cut 1 ½” and 2 ½” strips – or use the pre-cuts that are on the market. Sew these strips together to create a 4 ½” wide strip set. Turn-a-Round the ruler to cut tumblers that finish 4″. Multiple layers can be cut at the same time, cutting five tumblers at once without wasting any fabric. The holes in the ruler enable the rotary cutter to cut the tumblers without damaging the ruler. Our exclusive embedded gripper dots hold the fabric while cutting when pressure is applied.

Why Use the Tumbler Double Strip Ruler from Creative Grids?

  1. Embedded Gripper Dots – Non Slip ruler for precise cuts
  2. Easy to read black & white markings – Always know where and how far to cut
  3. Turn-a-Round feature on the rectangular and square rulers – a revolutionary design that assists quilters with accurately cutting fabric with seam allowances included
  4. Accuracy, Clarity and Non-Slip. No other ruler combines all three features

View Instructions

The Tumbler Double-Strip ruler is designed to cut tumbler shapes from any combination of strip sets that measure 4 ½” when sewn.

One side of the ruler is 2 ½” wide to cut your strips and the other side has the tumbler shapes.

Cutting 2 ½” wide strips:
1. Place two different fabrics right sides together. Straighten the raw edges of the fabric.

2. Place the straight side of the ruler on the fabric to cut the 2 ½” wide strips. Line the fabric up with the 2 ½” solid line on the ruler (Fig. 1) and then rotary cut along the straight edge to create a set of 2 ½” wide strips.

Cutting 2 ½” wide strips:
1. Place two different fabrics right sides together. Straighten the raw edges of the fabric.

2. Place the straight side of the ruler on the fabric to cut the 2 ½” wide strips. Line the fabric up with the 2 ½” solid line on the ruler (Fig. 1) and then rotary cut along the straight edge to create a set of 2 ½” wide strips.

3. Sew these two strips together – using a ¼” seam – then press the seam toward the darker of the two fabrics (Fig. 2).

Cutting Tumblers:
4. Turn-a-Round™ the ruler so that the tumbler shapes are up as shown (Fig. 3), placing the dashed center line on the seam. All of the flat tops of the tumblers should line up perfectly along the top edge of the two strips. Note: You may find it more comfortable to have the ruler in a different orientation when cutting the tumblers – see which way suits you.

5. Rotary cut along the angled sides of the tumbler shapes. The rotary cutter will extend beyond the fabric and into the circular cut-out areas. Be careful not to cut into the ruler as this will dull your blade. You now have a row of pre-cut tumbler shapes (Fig. 4).

6. Sew these pieces together into long rows (Fig. 5).

7. Sew these rows together to create the quilt.

Cutting Tumblers from 4 ½” Strips:
Use strips cut 4 ½” wide from several different fabrics. Cut the tumbler shapes as instructed above (without the seam through the middle). Piece these into rows of random patches and sew the rows together (Fig. 6).

Cutting Tumblers from a Variety of Strip Widths:
Combine any variety of strips that measure 4 ½” when sewn before cutting the tumblers. Combining tumblers cut from four – 1 ½” strips; two – 1 ½” strips and a 2 ½” strip; two 2 ½” strips; or a 4 ½” strip may provide interest to your quilt.
