Longarm rulers are a quilter's BFF, but as you may have guessed from the name, they're traditionally used by those who sew on longarm machines. These acrylic rulers are usually thicker than rotary cutting rulers, and they're designed for ruler work — a technique where you guide the foot along the edge of the ruler to produce a perfectly straight line, curved angle or circular shape.
