Quilting Ruler Market – Introduction

- These rulers are used for quilting, which is a process of joining layers of fabric together, either by stitching them manually or by using a machine to form a quilt, which is lightweight and can be used in both winter and summer seasons.
- Many quilters depend on the ruler because it gives accurate cuts and makes the quilt look more finished and professional.
