I think you may be referring to the June Taylor shape cut ruler and it is available at lots of places, M*QC may even have it, Joannes, etc.

I was going to suggest JoAnns, I got mine at Hancock if you have that in your area. They are really wonderful.

I got mine at Joann's online with the 50% coupon and have seen it at Hancock's and Ben Franklin. I use it ALL the time to make strips and squires. It is great. I hope you find yours soon.

I, too, think the June Tailor rulers are the way to go. Since I have them, all my regular rulers just sit around. Besides the Shape Cut consider the June Tailor Half and Quarter Square Triangle ruler. So many patterns call for half squares and quarter squares, and with this ruler they come out perfect! I also use that same ruler for drawing lines across blocks for snowballs and flying geese using the rulers marking channel, and I use it to square up regular squares. The only other rulers I would get are the square up block rulers that square up the finished blocks if they are larger than 6 1/2. I use my 12 1/2 square up all the time. Once you get experienced, you may want to get things like the circle cutting, Dresden, and other such rulers, but for the easier quilts, June Tailor is the way to go.
