You don't really need rulers for accurate FGs or HSTs. Use the "No Waste method" for FGs and the HST method like this https://www.thespruce.com/easy-half-...quilts-2821466

both allow the making of several at a time.

Happy day.

If you are making a lot of HST the bloc loc rulers are worth every penny you pay for them . They are wonderful for trimming them. I don't like to buy rulers with limited uses. I used a bloc loc ruler at a guild sewing day and looked it up on my phone and ordered one right then. I also make my HST with the 8 at a time method.

I love triangulations. It is paper pieced but they are perfect. They are especially good if you are joining more than one.

I use bloc locs and Deb Tucker's Wing clipper. They have really saved me from a lot of headaches! I have an accuquilt but don't always have the right size dies for my project.

While I have two Elanor Burns Flying Geese Rulers, I do not use them (my DH has given them to me as a present). What I use daily for both hsts and flying geese is the Olfa 6 x 12 Frosted ruler. Love it and use it for just about everything.

I use the Eleanor Burns ruler for flying geese. I always have nice geese without losing any points.
