This 4-1/2" square is the perfect companion for anyone who loves to work with the 5" pre-cuts on the market. The diagonal line makes trimming half-square triangles created with these 5" squares a piece of cake. It features easy-to-read black and white markings printed in 1" grids marked in 1/8" and 1/4" increments. Use the easy-to-read, black numbers (printed on white dots) and the 1/4" grip sides to cut whole inches. The 1/4" dashed lines printed on two adjoining sides aid in trimming seam allowances. Use Creative Grids' patented Turn-A-Round feature designated by the easy to read, numerical white numbers (printed on black dots) and the 1/2" grip sides to add the 1/2" seam allowance.
A 45 degree angle is printed in black and is used to trim half-square triangles to size. White horizontal and vertical lines are printed on the square so the center of the ruler is easily distinguishable. Use these lines to square up blocks based on four-patches or embroidered and appliqued blocks.
The ruler slides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied. Then, Creative Grids' exclusive gripper holds the fabric in place while cutting, eliminating slipping and miss-cuts!
