My heart skips a beat….

……at the sight of these!


Perfectly trimmed blocks ready to be sewn into a beautiful new quilt!


It is always worth it to take the time to square-up your blocks. In this case, all 42 of them.

Do you true-up your blocks before sewing them into a quilt?

  1. Yes I do. I had that drummed into my head by a wonderful teacher a number of years back.

    • Hi Pat!!! So great to hear from you! I “see” you on your blog and FB, but it has been a long time since we’ve “chatted!” You have come a long way in your quilting journey, lady. I’m very impressed!

  2. I try. Sometimes, I’m a little unsure of where to place the ruler, particularly if I have a block with star points. It looks as though I’ll cut off the needed seam allowance on one side or the other if I true-up the block.
    I think I need to use a scant quarter inch, perhaps, when I’m making stars? Practice, practice, practice…

  3. I try to square them up. I have learned that if you don’t square them up, you make more work for yourself later.
