Like all Creative Grids rulers, this practical ruler glides easily over the fabric until pressure is applied – then the great non-slip backing grips, which prevents annoying shifting when cutting. The easy-to-read black and white markings ensure optimal legibility on both light and dark fabrics. The Half Rectangle Trim Tool creates diagonally split rectangles in seven different sizes and, of course, with both diagonals pointing to the right and to the left. The cutting table is conveniently printed directly on it. Cut lines A and B make it easier to align the triangles for sewing. Since half rectangles have a different angle than half right triangles, an additional 1/8 inch notch is added to the final cut so that the seam lines run from corner to corner when sewn into a project.
