I have a pattern that calls for the creative grids 90 degree strip ruler for quarter square triangles.  I found one but it is a 90 degree double strip ruler.  Are they the same thing and will it work?

Hi MBKenny,

There is a difference, but I don't know enough about the rulers or the pattern you're doing to know if you can substitute one for the other.  If you go to 'creativegrids.com', then click products, then scroll over to the right in those boxes at the top, you'll see 'strips'.  Click on that one and all the different versions of that ruler will pop up.  You can see that there is a 90 degree strip ruler and a 90 degree double strip ruler.

MBKenny,
I only recently learned that when a pattern calls for a specific ruler, all the instructions are for that ruler and another ruler usually doesn't work unless you have access to the correct one and can make adjustments. A friend and I were making Chopsticks and it called for a particular triangular ruler. We tried it with another ruler and the markings were different. Luckily for  us, the pattern provided a template pattern to use as a substitute for the ruler.
