    My Creative Grids rulers work just fine for squaring up. Any ruler that has that diagonal line across will work for squaring up. I use my 6.5" ruler the most for any block that is that size or smaller.

    I love the clearly perfect trimmer and think it is well worth the price. You actually get 2 rulers in the package. It makes trimming so fast; I usually can make just one cut vs the time it takes to line up the diagonal line, cutting 2 sides then flipping the block, lining up the diagonal again and cutting the other 2 sides.

    I too have the clearly perfect trimmer.... I love it. Was shy of the price at first, but the investment was so worth it. I hate squaring up. but, you can do it with one slice with this trimmer. The others drove me nuts with turning and that second or 4th cut. I have the block lock and it wore me out.

    This is a one measure, slice n go trimmer. Two come in the pack and each one cuts about 6 sizes... Whole and half sizes.

    That said... I really like this quilt. 16 inch blocks are just my style. Right now, I'm just a bit fried on HST's. Going to do some other shapes for a while. LOL. But, I would make this.

    I love that layer cake! Unfortunately white isnít a color I can keep in my house! Iíve started several blue and white quilts knowing I canít keep them but thatís probably why I havenít completed them yet. Dogs and white quilts just do not get along.

    I have been tempted by these but also thought they were a little high since other ones do the same thing. Do you feel the "lock" feature is worth it? I've been hoping for a sale on them to try one out.

    It seems to me the templates/rulers are all expensive for a piece of plastic but I do like the block lock I bought, it improved my hst a lot even in comparison to squaring with a diagonal lined regular square ruler.
