    I have a 12.5" sq, I use it a lot, but I also have a 9.5 that I use more. But I wouldn't go without the 12.5, my typical squares could be 10.5, then I would be w/o the 12.5.

    15" but I have several of the smaller ones starting with 6" and have found them all useful.

    I have a 12 1/2", 15" and 20"; love the 15" the most. I got my 20" square from Hancock's of Paducah.

    I purchased a large piece (18x22) of acrylic at Menards and an acrylic cutter for $1.99 because I needed an 18 in square and didn't want to spend so much on a ruler I didn't think I would use very often. My plan worked - almost. While cutting the acrylic, the one corner broke off. So I just took another ruler and laid it on top of the broken corner while cutting my blocks.

Sterilite container (66 qt, I think) and then the ruler over the top...background fabric on top of that so I can place my applique shapes.

    It's nice to be able to move the ruler around to get the best light for where I'm working.

    Does that make sense?

    I don't think I've met a square ruler that I didn't like...

    Thank you for this idea! I may just use it every now and again! I usually tape every thing to my storm door and turn the outside lights on with the inside lights off, LOL!!!

    I have one 61/2"x 24 inch and a 12x61/2 ruler which I use all the time. I also have a 4inch square ruler which is always handy for squaring up HST blocks for 31/2 inch squares,
