I sewed my first quilt top a few weeks ago trying to use what is probably a very simple pattern.
Anyway, as I was ironing it in preparation of finally making my sandwich, I noticed how off it is in areas...
I wish I would have known of (or preferably, HAD) all of the awesome measuring tools and rulers I've just learned about in the past day or two.
I think my whole darn quilt is going to need some serious squaring up and will probably still be somewhat askew. (I'm just hoping that as my girls grow up, they find the imperfections endearing). So, what are your favorite tools for squaring up a whole (crib sized) quilt?
I've made a wishlist of rulers that I think will really help me with this and future quilts - what does everyone think of the items below? (if you know of another version or something else entirely that might help make the measuring/cutting of quilt pieces easier (and consequently, more fun!), please feel free to give me your input!
June Tailor 2.5" binding buddy ruler
5" x 24" lip edge ruler
12" x 18" June Tailor shape cut plus ruler
Quilt in a Day 12.5" x 12.5" shape up ruler
Thanks again (and again!) for any input.
