    Hello everybody,
    What size square quilting rulers are available? I have quite a few but I want a 7" - 7-1/2" and don't have one. I have looked but haven't seen one yet. Are they available in that size?

    You may find that size at a specialty store. Most of mine are 6" wide, butI have as narrow as 3-1/2. I like the square ones, too, and they go as wide as 12 1/2". That would probably be the easiest way to square 7-1/2" blocks.

    Judy,
    Try this site - if you click on the link below, it should pull up the page with a 7"x7" square ruler. I think I'm going to order one. It's a hard size to find.

    Judy,
    Here's another one that is 7-1/2"x7-1/2". Scroll down to the last item with is Creative Grid rulers and you'll find the size you want.

    Had a piece of plexiglass cut recently and noticed the leftover scraps in the back room of the hardware. My friendly glass cutter gave them to me for a much reduced price. Had them cut to 2 1/2, 3 and so on up to 8 inches wide by 24 inches long. Also had him cut squares for me in even sizes - used the 24 X 24 last week and what a joy they were. Just marked the sizes on them with permanent marker and my darling man used his drill press to make hanging holes for me. Much easier than adjusting the bifocals to those crazy little lines on the commercial rulers :-)
