If it was up to us we would NEVER square up our blocks... let's be honest no-one loves to square up :) Needless to say, squaring up is normally something we skip in the quilting process. Our blocks turn out square most of the time, but these blocks were really off because they were cut out from templates. We ended up squaring them up to make them lovely:
Only now that it is finished, we realize it was worth the time it took! Our quilt is coming together nicely, but now the problem is size. The quilt was a little on the small side to begin with, and it shrunk so much after squaring, that now we have to make (and square!) more blocks. Which really isn't a problem at all... :)
Have a Great Friday!
