    Default Just used my June Tailor Perfect Half Square Triangle ruler

    What a nifty little tool! In addition to hst's and qst's, you can use it to draw diagonal lines for flippy corner blocks and for squaring up. The sad thing is that I've had it for about three years and never even tried it before this week. Oh well!

    Nice to hear when a ruler comes in handy. Sometimes I don't want to spend the money on something I may not like.

    Sounds interesting. I wish quilt shops would have a bunch of this stuff out as demos so we could try before we buy.

    Sounds like maybe a good suggestion for quilt shops would be to have a class on various rulers!!

    I agree! I have one too that's still in the wrapper. A demo would be helpful!

    That would also work for quilt guilds!! I always enjoyed the demo when various people who show how their quilting tricks. I really still miss Simply Quilts on HGTV. That was one way a quilter could keep current on new products!!

    I've used it for HST and QST but didn't know it did anything else. I like the slots for the rotary cutter, but I don't like the pencil marking slot - too much wiggle room.

    Thanks for the tip
