How to Square Up a Quilt Block:
- Measure your quilt blocks to see how large you want them to be when they are square.
- Mark off your ruler with the glow line tape on the appropriate measurement lines. Two sides with tape can be the edges of the ruler.
Note: Trim the edges of the tape off with scissors or a rotary cutter.
- Line up your ruler on top of your block. Align the lines on your ruler with the center seams on your block as reference points to make sure the spacing is even.
- Use your rotary cutter to cut one side of your block, and then the other.
- Rotate your quilt block 90 degrees and repeat the process with the last two sides. Repeat this process with all your other blocks. Sew your blocks together to make your quilt!
Note: You should be able to line up both the center seams and outer edges.
