In this workshop Jennie shows you how to use Square Ruler to ensure your block has perfectly shape.
Known as Squaring Up – you will find that this is a technique that is used a lot in patchwork that has been machine sewn and this ruler helps you get that just right from small all the way up to 16.5 inch.
The square has a series of lines across it so that you can see exactly where you are and then you will be ready to add borders.
Jennie reminds you that you need to have a 1/4 inch seam allowance left when you trim up!
Take a look at the Pineapple block that Jennie uses to demonstrate – next time your corners are out – don’t panic!
