Trimming squares - Giveaway

I have been on the hunt for a 3" square ruler for trimming up 2.5" (finished) half square triangles. I never would have thought that they would be so hard to find. Needless to say, my search has been fruitless... until I found a site that will custom laser cut and engrave pretty much any size acrylic shapes. So I ordered these.
I got a 2", 3", 4", 5", 5 1/2" and 6", each with a line engraved in the horizontal and vertical center line and from corner to corner. I was trying to get the sizes that you can't already get with the square quilting rulers. The lines should help with centering the squares since they don't have ruler marks.

I haven't had a chance to use them yet as they came in the mail the day before I left to Indiana.

The price was very reasonable, including shipping it was only a couple dollars more than the cost of a 12 1/2" square ruler. Shipping time was good, I received them in less than 10 days.

I did not think to ask them if it would be okay to link to their website, so for now if you would like info please email me and I will be glad to forward the info to you.

UPDATE: To celebrate the Black Friday Sew In (#BFSI) I would like to give away a set of these trimming squares. So if you would like a set please comment on this post or follow me on twitter @SweetAdelineQ for a chance to win. I will choose a winner at random at midnight tonight (eastern time) and contact you by email for shipping info.


  1. What a great idea! I have a 6" ruler, but prefer the 6.5" now. I haven't heard of the other sizes.

    There are a few people out there who make specialty rulers, which is really nice if you are doing a project that would require awkward templates.

  2. Fantastic idea! And I'm making note of a site that custom-cuts shapes. Could come in handy! Sandy H,

  3. I usually can think outside of the box but I never thought to find a place to make custom rulers and such. WTG!

  4. Thanks for the comments everyone.
    I ordered at

  5. Thank you for the giveaway. I received the trimming squares and can't wait to use them. What a great idea. Thank you also for the great fat quarters of children's fabric. Felt like it was my birthday!
