This 2-1/2 x 24-1/2 inch rectangle ruler is the perfect size! It fits cleanly on your mat without any overhang, and cutting directly off the bolt has never been easier!
The ruler features easy-to-read black and white markings printed in 1-inch grids marked in 1/8 and 1/4 inch increments. Use the easy-to-read, black numbers (printed on white dots) and the 1/4 inch grip sides to cut whole inches. The 1/4 inch dashed lines printed on two adjoining sides aid in trimming seam allowances. Use the patented Turn-A-Round feature, designated by the easy-to-read, numerical white numbers (printed on black dots) and the 1/2 inch grip sides, to add the 1/2 inch seam allowance. Use the white 45-degree angle to trim half-square triangles in whole-inch increments. Use the black 45-degree angle to trim half-square triangles in half-inch increments. An additional black 45-degree line is placed so that they cross 1/4 inch away from the outside edge. Use these markings to square up flying geese units and squares set on point. The ruler also features a 30 degree/60-degree angle. White horizontal and vertical lines are printed on the rectangle so the center of the ruler is easily distinguishable. Use these lines to fussy cut stripes and borders.
