Thread: which ruler is better: regular square ruler, or square-it-up ruler?

    I decided I need a 12.5x12.5" square ruler, mainly to square up my blocks.

    Creative Grids have two styles: the standard 12.5x12.5" ruler, and a "Fussy-cut/square-it-up" ruler that is more specific to the task, but it's more expensive than the standard ruler. (mainlly because the fussy-cut ruler comes with holes at various square sizes where you can use it to mark the corners)

    here are the info on both rulers I'm looking at:

    do you think the fussy-cut/square-it-up ruler is worth it? Has anyone used one or the other for squaring the block, and have an opinion on it?

    thanks for any thoughts!

    Hi all,
    thanks so much for such quick replies! I love this!

    seems like standard ruler is the way to go.

    Thanks so much!

    I have a smaller square up ruler and don't use it. I have the standard in different sizes and use them all. esp. the 12.5 x 12.5 Go for it!
