My mother-in-law and I just finished a twin size quilt top we've been working on for my daughter. It's the largest quilt I've done, and I'm nervous now about squaring it up.
Do we square the top before it's been quilted, or should we wait until after? We are sending it to a longarm quilter.
Unfortunately I don't have a picture. The quilt is pinwheel blocks set on point, with no side borders, although there are narrow top and bottom borders. For the setting triangles on the sides, we used larger blocks than were necessary, to "float" the blocks a little and give us more room to square up. THe lady we quilt with, however, who has an awful lot of experience quilting, acted like she'd never heard of doing this, so I'm not sure she'll have much advice on squaring it, either.
