Bloc Loc is a brand that has been around more than a few years. I don’t know what took me so long to discover them. There are many different Bloc Loc rulers but I will talk about the Half Square Triangle rulers here. I am working on some table runners that are made up of mostly half square triangles (HST).
When making HST, I use triangle papers or squares of fabric. Both of these methods require trimming. Use the Bloc Loc HST Rulers for the trimming.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is worth 10 thousand words. Watch this video to see how the Bloc Loc HST ruler is used and what amazing results you get.
I quickly and easily trimmed up 54 half square triangles and the blocks stitched together beautifully because the trimming is unbelievably accurate! I am pleased and I recommend these rulers to anyone who makes half square triangles.
These rulers come in 10 different sizes ranging from 1-1/2″ to 12-1/2″. These numbers are the cut size of the block. You can also purchase 7 different sets of these rulers.

A rotating cutting mat will speed up the trimming process even more. Fiskars Rotating Cutting Mat 8″x8″
