    For the month of August , we find ourselves doing Half Square Triangles & Quarter Square Triangles for the Bella Skill Builder Month 7 ! Bella Skill Builder Month 7 with Fat Quarter Shop Creative Grids Rulers I used the Creative Grids Half-Square 4-in-1 Triangle Ruler Creative Grids #CGRBH1 | Fat Quarter Shop and the Creative Grids 4.5" Quilting Square Ruler Creative Grids #CGR4 | Fat Quarter Shop to do my blocks! I have and love all the Creative Grids Quilting Square Rulers . They never slip and for me that is a necessity!
