When I fold the flannel in half to square it, I smooth it out to match the edges. I place the selvages together and to the top. I smooth it down to the fold and out to the side edges. Once I get it smoothed out, I check the opposite side and it is messy so I flip it over to smooth that side the same as I did the first side. When done with that side, I check the first side and it is messy and no longer matches.
What can I do to avoid this problem. Because of it, I can't get squared edges. Please Help. :) I am making strip quilts according to a Missouri Quilt Company QAYG technique and it starts at the top edge and one side edge of the fabric. So I need it to be square. Thank you so much. :)
