    I did a google search for a seven inch square quilt ruler and came up with a 7 1/2" ruler at http://www.quiltbug.com/notions/rulers.htm Hope that helps. :)

    I was really wanting to find a 7" X 7" square ruler. Not 7-1/2.

    That might be harder to find in a quilting ruler. Most quilting rulers will have the 1/2" for the seam allowances. You could try to google carpentry rulers. It's a thought. I'll give it another try and see what I can find. Good Luck!

    Head on down to your local hardware and have your glasscutter cut one from plexiglas. That size is generally too small to replace a window and mine usually cuts it, hands it to me, and tells me to have a great day quilting! Just use a sharpie to draw from corner to corner to find your center for squaring up. Have lots of these "freebies" in my drawer in many sizes.

    I have sq quilting rulers in 4"and 6"; I also have them in 4.5 and 6.5. You can get them in both sizes.
