But only those that have a scientific mathematical foundation. Not the kitchy one-trick ones.
My favorites are the 45-degree right-triangle rulers that assist in making no-waste triangle squares (also called half-square triangles) like those in my most recent Long Time Gone block.
My favorite is the Creative Grids 45-degree Half-Square Triangle (CGRT45).

Other examples are the Omnigrid 96 (6") and 96L (larger 8").
Possibly the earliest and most common right triangle ruler is the Easy Angle.

The most recent product on the market is Bonnie Hunter's Essential Triangle Tool which combines the half-square triangle and quarter-square triangle in one tool.

Yes, I guess I'm a ruler junkie. But I try to avoid purchasing a specialty ruler that I will only use for one quilt.
This isn't my typical "I Like" Thursday post, I know, but it's a subject that's been on my mind the last few days. Please visit Not Afraid of Color to see what other quilters like.
