If you mean my ruler. I actually have two: The June Tailor Shapecut Plus ruler and the June Tailor Quarter Cut ruler. I use the first one the most--the slots are 1/2" apart and it is bigger (12"x18"); the second one has 1/4" slots, but it is smaller (6"x12") so it's not as useful generally. The large one is my favorite ruler of all time--Cutting strips, etc. it's amazing. And there is a way to cut to the nearest 1/4" with it. There are videos on the website showing how to do it.

Thank you Carol 45 for this tip. I too wasn't "seeing it" but your picture and directions made it clear. Great idea!

Clever. Anything that improves cutting accuracy is a winner.

If I were you, I would purchase the Triangulations CD for ~$30. You can print out the size HST you need, sew on the lines, cut on the lines, PERFECT every time. No squaring up needed and your HST are made in no time. Definitely worth the investment and I use the CD all the time whenever I can. They would be the most accurate HST you ever made.
