Does this Notion REALLY work? When you are aiming for precise cuts, you use a quilting ruler. In fact there are three things you must have. You need a rotary cutter, rotary mat and a quilting ruler. Today we will discuss the Olfa Forsted Advantage rulers and see all the benefits to using them.
Olfa Frosted Advantage Rulers
OLFA first launced rulers in 2002 with 3 sizes: 12″ square, 6″ x 12″ and 6″ x 24″. Since then they have launched many additional sizes.

- Frosted acrylic – easy to read black numbers and grid lines on dark and light fabrics
- The frosting creates surface tension – you can slide the ruler on the fabric easily while lining it up, but it stays put once pressure is applied
- Reduces glare commonly associated with acrylic rulers
- Manufactured directly on the acrylic, so it won’t wear or peel off
