Squaring a Quilt Block

Squaring a Quilt BlockWhen sewing quilt blocks, you may notice that your pieces don't fit together perfectly. This is because, no matter how careful you are, sometimes your pieces are not cut perfectly. Or it's possible your seams are not exact. These slight imperfections can compound and you'll end up with a quilt block which might be a touch too big or a touch too small. This might become more of an issue when you try to sew all your blocks together. Luckily, there's a way to fix this and it's known as squaring a quilt block. Before you sew your blocks together to create your quilt top, you'll want to square all your blocks to get them as close to perfect as possible. This will make sewing them together easier. This video covers squaring blocks in both options of size discrepancies.
