Have you ever had problems fitting blocks together in a quilt? Most quilters have encountered blocks that are too large, too small or a little skewed, and as a result, struggled to put the quilt together in even rows. In this Quilt & Sew Tips episode, quilting expert Nancy McNally demonstrates how to trim up your quilt blocks to be all the same size.

In this episode, you'll learn how to:
  • Use 6 1/2" and 12 1/2" grid rulers.
  • Square up a half-square and triangle unit.
  • Square up a block.
  • Prioritize which seams to trim.
