    OK I'm stumped. They have about every other kind of measurement of grids except a 10.5! I asked a woman at JoAnns if she knew of anyone that carried them, she said they don't make them!! Can anyone tell me why? I thought about asking my ex-brother in law to cut me one from plexyglass and smoothing the edges. It's awkward having to use the 9.5 and 12.5 all the time. I mean, isn't 10.5 a popular square anyway... or am I just still new and don't know what I'm talking about! Thats probably it but...well you know. Had to ask. :mrgreen:

    THEY DO MAKE 10.5 I have one. It is clear with green and is made by Omnigrip. I bought it at Joanns fabrics. It was like $16 dollars or something outrageous.
    Here is a picture I posted of it.

    You're kidding!! I can't find one anywhere and one JoAnns worker told me they don't make them!! I was hoping to find one there since they had their 50% off sale going. Ok, thanks, I'll have to keep searching then. At least I know they're out there! I May see if my sister can get me one out of Knoxville. She lives in Dandridge.
    Gee, thanks again ladies!

    I find the Joann's workers will tell you things like that if they don't carry it. I had ours tell me there was no such things as water soluble thread.... :)

    Traditionally the most popular sizes of blocks were 9" and 12" therefore the 9 1/2 or 12 1/2 square up rulers. Now there seems to be a ruler of every size and for every purpose.
