Quilting rulers come in all different sizes and shapes. Heather Thomas will teach you how to use them properly by explaining what all of the different hash lines on them are for as well as the diagonal lines.
A book quilt :D This actually looks fairly easy to sew! You could embroider the names of books on the bindings. The Scarlet Pimpernel, Pride and Prejudice, Anne of Green Gables, Nancy Drew, Tale of Two Cities. Perfect for my book reading chair :)
