    Love them I actually ordered a smaller one for splendid sampler , they in error sent wrong size. They gladly sent me the right size and told me to keep my wrong one. Great customer service

    Turning the block around and sliding the ruler up and down on the diagonal. I love my 6-1/2" regular CG ruler for squaring up and use that one all the time. It just seems way easier with that ruler to see what I am doing. Maybe I just never clicked with the learning curve of the Bloc Loc.

    No. I tossed mine, too.

    I don't like single purpose rulers. I also have an Accuquilt.

    I bought a set a couple years ago; 2.5, 4.5 & 6.5. I love them! Like kensington said, the seam rests in the groove and the point where the two fabrics join is perfect! I found that when using a regular ruler, I often cut off a bit more on one side than the other because of the ruler slipping.

    What makes the Loc Block more fun is your seem rests inside that grove and does not wobble on the hump when you cut.

    When I made the PinWheel on point, that square up on that seam was a pain. But, with the Loc Block, no wobble. I am so glad I bought it too. I also got the 6.5 size.

    Love the Bloc-Loc ruler! I also have the 6-1/2 size. I bought it when I started the 365 challenge and I love it for flattening out the blocks and squaring them.

    I held off buying a Bloc Loc ruler for a long time because I have so many templates and rulers already. I always watch them demonstrated at the quilt shows but never buy. Then earlier this year they were on sale and I just had to take the plunge.

    WOW what a difference it makes squaring up those HSTs ... and, yeah, that Bloc Loc ruler actually makes it fun.

    I bought the 6 1/2" size as well. I use every time I have to square up HSTs!

    Works very well for me too! I like the 6 1/2" size and you can square up smaller sizes with ease. This size is easy to maneuver and fits my hand.

    So now I'm making a Hunter's Star and it's AWESOME to use when I'm resizing the HSTs to 2.75" It actually makes it a little fun!
    That's great to hear! I bought one and haven't used it yet.
