    I am working on a D9P and I have a Question. Do you square up the blocks as a 9 patch before you do the vertical and horizontiel cut? I am just about at that point and notice some need trimmed. Thanks for some help.

    I have done it as well, never off very much but it does happen. Once things are squared, it just makes the block and rows go together a lot more smoothly. You pretty much end up with perfect intersections.

    I definitely would make sure they are all the same size.
