    Hello

    My name is Deb . I have started to learn about quilting . I found this board today and thought how better to learn . I have so many questions , but will read as much as I can . My first quilts are 4 inch sqares and low and behold , they are not even . I did not cut my own squares , I bought them , so I am thinking maybe some just weren't cut the right size . Then my sewing skills are good , but somehow the seams look like they are all the same , but , I haven't measured them .
    Can I cut it down where it does not come out even and it still look ok ?

    Welcome from Florida!

    It depends what you have sewn together so far. If you've simply sewn 4 pieces together (2 x 2), you still have a shot at squaring them up and still being able to match your seams.
