http://www.quiltknit.com/5547-RU-7-X...re_p_2338.html I found this one, but it seems a little expensive to me. I have heard you can get plexiglass cut to a specific size at the hardware store.

A quilt pattern that I like to use often, calls for 12 blocks that size, and I usually fussy cut them.

I have a 9" square, and if it was me, I would just use it to cut 7" squares...or any size up to 9"...it is an omni ruler and has markings for every inch,half inch, quarter inch and even eighth inches.

As someone else said if you really want a 7" square, you could get one cut at a place that cuts glass for windows, etc, they would also do plexi glass.

I agree with getting a square cut out of Plexiglas. Cheap too. Probably won't be more than $5-6. You can get this done at a glass shop or a hardware store, Lowes, Menards or Home Depot could do it too but I believe they will make you purchase a sheet of Plexiglas whereas the glass shop will just charge you the cost of the 7" square.

I get templates cut at a mirror and glass store. The workers there are extremely precise and the price is right for that precision. froggyintexas

Ace hardware will cut the plexiglass to size and you will have the perfect 7x7. They cut mine for free, I just paid for the plastic
