    Great advice! Unless you are planning on making a LOT of HSTs, the Bloc-Loc is hard to rationalize because of the price. I was looking at the tutorial calledCourtship Quilt, which is completely made of 4-1/2" HST, about 350 of them! Since I wanted to make that quilt, I rationalized getting the Bloc-Loc. I will look for that Scotch product to modify other rulers.

    Thanks Jean, I had missed the Bloc Loc set some how. Considerably cheaper as a set. Another Martelli fan here too.

    I’ve been thinking about those Bloc-Loc rulers, so thanks for the review. I’ve had the Martelli rotating mat for a while now and absolutely love it. I’ve used the cheaper rotating ones but the Martelli is much better. I haven’t bought any of their other mats yet but next time I need one I’ll wait for a Martelli sale.

    Thanks for the review. Will have to see when they can fit in budget. Not in the near future, but maybe later.
