SQUARING YOUR QUILT AFTER BLOCKING
I hope most quilters realize that landscape quilts need to block and square their wall quilts so they lay flat and square! Here are the trimmings from a quilt I just created for Quilting Arts Television airing in 2018. My quilt was fairly square after I blocked it so it wasn't too difficult to square. I use square rulers when I square my quilt and always measure to make sure my quilt is the same width and length. I measure several places across the quilt to make sure the measurement is the same throughout! As you can see above, when I put the binding on another quilt (Melaine's Quilt), I use binding clips to keep my binding in place while I stitch it down by hand!
