Frequently, I have been making holiday table runners that result in a scrap pile of 45 degree triangles.
But I greatly disliked cutting squares made from half square triangles until I purchased a Bloc Loc ruler for squaring up half square triangle blocks (HST's).
Yesterday, armed with a 50% off coupon for our local Craft Warehouse, I made my purchase and now the 6.5 inch ruler has joined my collection of rulers and templates designed for rotary cutting. The ruler is very expensive, probably due to the groove on back side for lining up the seam. The groove works like magic to control slippage and create perfectly square blocks with a corner to corner seam as long as you remember to put the logo, Bloc Loc, on the "low" side of the seam.

Now to find all those HST's and piece them for a scrap quilt.
