Quilt Tip Tuesday #12 Squaring a Block

Updated: Aug 26, 2022

I just got back from Quilt Market and Quilt Festival. What a busy twelve days. I saw so many beautiful quilts and met some great people. Walking through the quilts is awe-inspiring and the vendors had so many beautiful and exciting ideas. I'm exhausted but inspired. Now down to work.

When I first started quilting I didn't know that I needed to square up my blocks. It didn't occur to me. I went to retreat and watched a woman square up each of her blocks and thought. Maybe I should be doing that. The problem was when I tried to square them up I never really understood where to start. Well, I found this video and it has been a huge improvement in the look of my quilts. There are lots of methods to square up a block but I have to say Kits From Carla's video, for me, is the easiest.
