Well I guess I not the only one that wanted a 7X7 square. A 7X7 would give nice 6 and 1/2 inch finished blocks or if you sewed 4 together, a nice 12 and 1/2 inch block.

Thanks. I just ordered it. I have had some cut in the past, but sometimes, they are off just a bit, and I don't like that. Sewing a perfect quarter inch seam is precise enough with out being off just a bit on the corner. It is worth the extra to me to have a perfect square. I will use that square a lot.

If you have to purchase the plastic, why not get one a piece a little larger and have another special size cut?
I was thinking I wanted the exact sizes for pattern I use to make quite often. I always take my rulers and put neon tape on the lines I need to cut, but this would be so much better.

Yes, I have gone to the big home improvement stores and bought a sheet of plexiglass and had them cut templates the size I want. There was no problem, they were exactly what I asked for and much, much cheaper than the LQS templates.

Here's another store
