How to Square up a Quilt

It's finally here!  The last video tutorial in my Video Quilt Along series. Phew! 


We have been through a lot these past few months, eh?


The number of participants who joined in on the quilty fun is overwhelming! A global and multicultural group from countries like Australia, UK, Singapore, India, Latin America and more! Many of you have never made a quilt block before so I applaud you for taking on the challenge and going for it!

The pictures we have seen on my Facebook page are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It's so much fun to see how different the quilts are even though most of the blocks are similar. Color choices from all over the color wheel, a variety of bold prints and some even used different types of fabric and the end result is always a beautifully handmade quilt. Check out the pictures by scrolling down HERE.

If you are new to my blog (welcome!) and don't know what I'm talking about.  My Video Quilt Along is a 16-part series on how to make an entire quilt from start to finish. You can access the entire series HERE.

Watch How to Square up a Quilt tutorial below. Remember you need to be reading this on my actual blog to see the embedded video, not just in your email box. 

The rulers I like to use to square up my quilts are:
Omnigrid Quilter's Square 9.5" x 9.5": http://amzn.to/LgDVC6
Omnigrid Quilter's Square 12.5" x 12.5": http://amzn.to/JOUSss
Omnigrid Quilter's Ruler 4" x 14": http://amzn.to/KqRmWE



I'm still working on my Video Quilt Along quilt and will let you know once it's done. Right now it's on my longarming frame as you can see...

(Studio sneak peek! What do you think?! I'm almost done.)
I will post a video tour once it's all done. 

Thanks again for your support!

I love pins!
